The Lenovo IdeaPad Z500

Premium Performance, Slimmer Style

25% slimmer than a standard notebook, the IdeaPad Z500 notebooks come with a tactile soft-touch exterior and deliver a range of multimedia capabilities. While 3rd-generation Intel Core processors ensure top performance, utilising the same technology found in thicker notebooks, smart features like Intelligent Touchpad makes it perfect for the new Windows 8 interface.

The Intel Core processors are the same models that you'd find in full-size notebooks

Responsive Features

3rd Generation Intel Core Processor Family

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 features the 3rd generation Intel Core family of processors, including the intelligent Intel Core i5 processor. Featuring the same technology as you'll find in full-size notebooks rather than the low-power processors you find in ultraportable devices, you'll be able to enjoy uncompromised performance. This CPU is 15% faster than the previous generation, with the processor, graphics, and memory controller all sitting on one 22nm die.

High Definition NVIDIA GeForce GT630M Graphics

Accelerate your notebook's performance by up to 3.5x with the cutting-edge NVIDIA GeForce GT630 graphics card with 2 GB of VRAM**. This powerful graphics adapter will allow you to experience DirectX 11 gaming, as well as getting the most out of the 15.6" HD widescreen display, giving you 720p video playback without stuttering.

You'll also be able to get great performance and great battery life with NVIDIA Optimus technology.

Whether you're editing a video, surfing the web, or playing a 3D game, NVIDIA Optimus technology selects the perfect balance of performance and battery life.

You can also enjoy your multimedia on the big screen by using the built-in HDMI port to hook your laptop up to a HDTV, monitor or projector - ideal for sharing your favourite videos and movies with friends.

USB 3.0 for Faster Connections

By connecting the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 to a compatible USB 3.0 device, such as an external drive, 3.0 can offer up to 10 times faster transfer rates than standard USB 2.0. This means that files and folders that took hours to transfer now just take minutes and you can move whole albums to and from your laptop in just a few seconds, saving you time and making your media much more portable.

15.6" LED Backlit HD Display

Movies, Games and the Internet all come to life on the Lenovo IdeaPad Z500. Featuring a 15.6" LED-backlit display, you'll be able to enjoy your favourite films and web videos in HD resolution (1366 x 768) and in glorious 16:9 widescreen.

Specialised Stereo Speakers

These speakers also feature Lenovo's specialised speaker design, giving you clearer and richer audio, even from small integrated speakers. Integrated PC speakers are normally limited by their size and surrounding casing. Our improved speaker design generates better frequency response than typical computer speakers. Special rubber vibration isolators remove unwanted vibrations at low-frequencies, greatly enriching sound quality.
