Product Description

Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Laptop

And the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Laptop sits with the best of them on price and performance combinations. The price tag that can be found hanging from Lenovo's latest offering is the bargain of bargains. Storage is a full 1 TB drive which will hold tens of thousands of documents and is a very large drive for this price point. For powerful outstanding performance in a value driven market, the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Laptop has all the functionality you could require. It boasts solid multimedia features and has powerful Nvidea GeForce GT635 1GB HD as the graphics engine. Multiple USB ports form its connectivity and a HDMI port is available to connect to your TV. Lenovo have also fitted awesome Dolby Home Theatre audio and a handy six in one card reader which is a really cool addition to a well specified Laptop. So for functional, flexible computing the Lenovo Z500 is the right choice in so many areas.

The Lenovo Z500 CPU Engine

Everyone wants value-focused machines. Laptops such as this recently released Lenovo Z500 leads the pack with its i3 processor, 4 GB ram, 1 TB hard disk good connectivity, 15.6 HD 16:9 widescreen and Windows 8. And all this from an elite brand. Ebuyer have been able to offer the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Laptop with high specifications at a remarkable price. Those shoppers looking for an exceptional, perhaps even unrepeatable Laptop discount offer need look no further. 

Living with the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500

An area where the IdeaPad still definitely delivers though is when it comes to actually working without the usual slowdowns in Internet, Office and other applications, and by that I don't just mean emails and maybe a few word processing documents and websites. I mean document writing, photo and video editing, not to mention website creation, simple programming and a host other of tasks are all within the IdeaPad's remit. While you can find ways to do many of these on budget notebooks, you'll often find yourself slowing or stopping due to the limitations of the hardware much of the time. Having a Lenovo z500 at your fingertips makes all the difference as it can handle these applications and so much more with ease.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Graphics Engine

Lenovo introduces its workhorse and when it comes to the graphics, the integrated offerings from both AMD and latest chips is commendable. Right now is the time to buy a powerful Laptop. The specification for the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 Laptop reads like it will produce a quality experience and it does. It may lack some of the thrills of high end Laptops and notebooks at three times the cost, but this isn't a budget offering, this is a midrange Laptop which has had the pricing significantly reduced to fill a budget niche. It is unclear how long ebuyer will be able to hold this pricing as many competitors are charging appreciatively more for the exact same Laptop.

Lots of smaller hard drives are available for budget machines, but Lenovo has elected to install a 1TB drive inside the chassis. This gives you volumes of storage and indeed is double what some competitor's offer. It has also squeezed a DVD reader / Writer optical drive into the chassis, which gives you more options. This Nvidea GeForce boasts maximum operating thermal design power (TDP) which is certainly low compared to normal mobile CPUs, and helps the Z500 with an overall battery life over six hours and can run the latest applications and multimedia downloads.
