the i7 with 6gb ram and windows 8 is fantastic! Buy!,
This review is from: Lenovo Ideapad Z580 15.6 inch laptop - Gunmetal (Intel Core i7 3520M 2.9GHz, 8Gb RAM, 1Tb HDD, Blu-ray, Nvidia Graphics, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
CONS: Junk software in bundle (this may pay to keep price down.)
PROS: Everything - don't struggle on with a noisy, slow, faulty imperfect machine.
Fantastic large size keyboard for long documents, everything is intuitive, i didn't need the O2 start-up disc. I plugged in the ethernet and Lenovo just grabbed it! Sheer delight! Strong body construction and clearly tailor made to windows 8. please don't believe the grumpy old men, windows 8 is fantastic, within minutes you'll find everything you want-it very readily presents you with an old style desktop at the touch of a button. My logitech minimouse - £15 - automatically raises the sign-in curtain when I switch it on. it feels a little more intelligent which is what people may be reacting to; 8 isn't boring & 8 is very complimentary to whatever you do with a computer. you will never go back. the absence of touchscreen is irrelevant - those tiles move effortlessly by several different means. Beware, the same price contender for a touchscreen comes from Samsung and it has one of those flexi-typing pads. Bad news in the long term as the whole thing sags and overflexes. for real work a solid type pad is best. this lenovo is silent in operation. shockingly silent, shockingly intelligent. the i7 with 6 or 8 may be something of a bargain, snap one up, both microsoft and lenovo (Chinese IBM) are pulling no punches with this combo. solid quality, great screen. Real Worth: circa £1000. You'll feel upgraded, from the depths of your lower-intestine, just at the outlet, to the vaulted ceilings of your skull. You weren't born in the West to suffer (like an Apple share-holder).
