5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Graphic Designer!, 6 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lenovo Ideapad Z500 15.6-inch Laptop (Dark Chocolate) - (Intel Core i5 3210M 2.5GHz Processor, 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Nvidia Graphics, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
Bought this laptop after much research and debate, as I am a designer I wanted to be able to run the Adobe Creative Suite (CS6) on it, but also be able to use it for general surfing, Skype, iTunes, watching Netflix etc.

Have had it for about 6 months and it's great! Very tactile, and nice to use- really like the backlit keyboard- great when you're working into the evenings! Also the screen is a good res, and big enough for me to do graphics on (although I do hook up to another screen when i'm in the office). The sound is also good quality, which helps for online tutorials etc. Also good for watching movies etc.

Also, the track pad is nice and smooth, so doesn't irritate your fingers if you use it a lot like some laptops do. I use mostly with a wireless mouse, but I am happy to use the track pad if I have to.

The battery is also quite long-life (and has some energy-management stuff that you can adjust) and it has lots of USB ports, which is handy!

For the budget, I don't think you can beat this laptop, it's a great machine- performs well and is nice to use. The only downside I have found is that it's quite heavy, so if you had to carry it around a lot that may be a consideration.

Overall, highly recommended!
