Been searching for a decent spec laptop for under £400 for weeks. This gets a great review. 4GB RAM, 500GB HD, Intel HD 3000 graphics, very nice to look at too.

Comes with a £50 voucher that can be redeemed against a minimum spend of £200 next February.

According to the Lenovo site, the Z series comes with it as standard. Doesn't really matter to me, but we'll see once it arrives.

Voted hot as good price for 2nd gen i5 Sandybridge.

Model type get good review here;

pcpro.co.uk/rev…570

Bear in mind model reviewed has blu-ray and dedicated graphics but rest should be similar.

Bluetooth reads as optional from Lenovo PDF specs, but having said that so does 10/100/1000 LAN port. It will have a LAN port of course but it will either be 10/100 or 10/100/1000 - have never heard of optional LAN port speed. Not a problem unless you are connecting to gigabit LAN network like me.

The big miss for me is no USB 3 ports.

If I did not not have my 2nd gen i7, I might be tempted.

Would like to think Lenovo UK support to be better - (read user comments at end of review)

cheers

They have a Dell Q15R for £500 with an i7-2630QM, Blu-ray, 6GB, 640GB and Intel HD 3000 graphics - Link

Awesome.

No mention of optical out. Does anyone know if it has or not?

lenovo are solid, this looks good, have some heat

Awesome.



Lacks in battery life and a lot more than this product. Plus the lenovo is way better to look at.

Excellent price for an i5. May be better value than the £330 i3-2310M Fujitsu. tinyurl.com/cq7…vvo

Should be able to run minesweeper at a steady 30fps, medium graphic settings. You'll probably be able to max out on Solitaire.

Been looking for an i5 lappy.. Thanks for the deal... looks interesting

If you are just surfing and downloading virtually anything with a dual core processor (including Celeron) will be as fast as this and you should be able to save at least £100.

A mini bluetooth dongle is about £1..

Yes but it's "mac" not "max" and there's also a such a thing as a caps lock, it seems you need a new one of those too!

As long as you don't mind turning down the graphics quality this can run just about any game you throw at it. Look on Youtube for benchmark comparisons. Don't expect it to look pretty though

is this one better or the dell inspiron n5050 ? i have ordered the dell n5050 which is almost the same price and same specs ...

I bought the Lenovo Z560 last Christmas for £398.88... Specifications for that included a Core i3-350M 2.26GHz, a 320GB HDD (7200RPM), a Dedicated Nvidia Geforce 310M Graphics Card & Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit....

I was very impressed with it & would even have to say I would still rather have that one year old machine than this Z570.

Whilst the Z570 has an i5 and a 500GB Hard Drive, its just not a well rounded machine. I am guessing that the HDD is 5400rpm and whilst the Nvidia Geforce 310M in the Z560 isn't great, I would rather have dedicated graphics in a machine of this price bracket than an integrated option.

I suppose it all depends what you want it for, but for touching £400 I would be hoping for something more than integrated graphics and a 5400rpm HDD.

Thank you - how does it compare to this. I'm loking to spend less than £500 with Quidco/vouchers affecting price one way or another. Anything better than this for the money? Cheers,
