Do read this review b4 buying

BEAST WITH A BEAUTY!!! I bought this laptop from lenovo store and not from flipkart. There are not many reviews on flipkart for this laptop so maybe this one helps you in buying the laptop. Look & Feel: Just out of the box, u'l love the looks as it has a premium looks with metal body, silver colour and shine makes it amazing and with black keyboard. And the best part is its thickness. This laptop is so thin and light weight that u'll boast to everyone for this feature. Comparing to my old Vaio (2012 model) , total height of this laptop is nearly equal to ht. of base of my vaio. EDIT: Its not scratch-proof, so yeah scratches has started to appear on top cover and few on inner side. Display: 15.6" display with 1080p is surely an overkill but it doesn't means that it's a con in this laptop. Infact changing some display settings will give u best results and U'll surely love the display. Though my chrome tabs do look very small compared 768p resolution but when watching movies or playing games...Its really enjoyable. But I'll do mention that u may find brightness a little less as compared to VAIO laptops (Vaio is shit. Personally used it). Battery: On average battery lasts for 3-3.5 hours with wifi and movie playback and 4.5-5.5 hrs with wifi off. So overall a good battery backup and it's due to Haswell processors which are low power consuming processor. Never played games on battery. Performance: This is the key aspect to buy a laptop and this laptop is Beast in performance. Maybe 4GB graphic is just a public stunt to gather consumers attention but It certainly performs well with high end games. Currently, I'm playing AC Unity at 1080p with high settings and COD Ghost 1080p with max settings and no lag so far. Games Run smoothly without any problem. Aside of games, U wont find any lag in using the system but I do find boot time is little more( considering the specifications). SUGGESTION: Play game on 1366X768 resolution if experiencing any lag and I'm sure lag will be gone. Do change the resolution of game as well as ur pc for maximum Output Speaker Output: This is one of the best thing in the laptop. Amazing sound quality and reallllllyyyy loud. Dolby software with Lenovo one key theatre is cherry on the top. Watching movies, listening music and playing games is incredible because of high quality music output. Keyboard & Mouse: Both keyboard and mouse are really good though u may find some lag while using touchpad. Its noticeable but avoidable too. Also, personally I do feel that keyboard is little small coz many times I end up pressing num lock or = key instead of backspace and arrow up key instead shift key which is lil annoying. EDIT: touchpad lag is gone after some updates. One of the best thing was Adaptive keyboard i.e the F1-F12 keys are activated by pressing Fn keys which are rarely used and all volume keys, brightness and other function keys can be used directly just like any other key. And keyboard sound is present but very less which wont bother u much. Softwares: pre-installed: Windows 8.1 with some lenovo drivers. One key theater and Dolby Audio software are really good to use.Energy Manager App by lenovo is also very good for battery care purpose and Fan dust cleaning. Rest are office 365, mc livesafe antivirus all for 30 days and other few softwares. Customer Support: Many users ignore this point which leads them to a terrible experience. But trust me, lenovo support is by far the best support i had ever experienced. They're just a one call away and will solve your any query without procrastinating it. Briefing above points: Pro's: Professional looks with silver black combination. Display is good and sharp but some might feel 1080p useless. Battery is very good and charging time is less. Performance is amazing with no heating issues. Speaker output is superb with dolby sound and lenovo one key theater experience. Microphone quality is excellent. Really thin and light weight. Adaptive keyboard is great. Best Customer Support. Cons: Brightness is little low. Backlit keyboard is missing which is not expected in such segment. Power cord of Adapter is very small. It has only 1 USB 3.0 which is a major disappointment in this segment. 4GB gfx and 1080p might be an overkill for some users. Keyboard sound is very less but noticeable. Boot up time is lil more than expected. In the end, the laptop is far better in its pro's then cons and with 55k budget, its ultimate gaming laptop. I'll highly suggest U to buy it and purchase extended warranty. Plz do vote my review so that other user also gets benefit from this review. A genuine lenovo z50 user writing after 5 month usage.

Good Laptop with this Configuration within the Price Range

Bought this laptop from Nearby Retailer. It comes with Genuine Windows 8.1 and Drivers are Given in separate partition (If you are going to format) Comes with Full HD screen, looks pretty good but not awesome. Screen Resolution 1920*1080 Most of the Games work fine with 1920*1080 resolution. But Unity works fine only in 1366*768 resolution. (Pirated Version without Patch) But there are no glitches and seems good. Lenovo Energy Manager App is Good move and has Dust cleaner wizard to remove dust in Cooler fan. Made of Metal body and the lid has metal finish (Not made of metal, just coating). Built in 8GB RAM, expandable upto 16 GB (1 Unused slot). Boot up time is less, which is not impressive with this configuration. Laptop doesn't heat much. And when comparing with old VAIO laptop ( VPCEG3AEN ), Its not heating at all. Touchpad and Keyboard is Good and Similar to other laptops, no stress given to ur fingers. Hard Disk Capacity 1 TB,which will 931.39 GB shown in ur Laptop. No issues for Now,Wil update, if there is a Problem.

Go for it!

It's been a couple of weeks since I've been using this laptop. I am quite satisfied with the product and highly recommend this to anyone who require a decent performance laptop in an affordable price. I have been using it for coding and graphic intensive games and the ride's been pretty smooth so far, no glitches. However, it does heat up a little during gaming but it's nothing major. I have been using a cooling pad from day 4 just to be on the safer side. -> It's surprisingly thin and sleek, and the FHD display is pretty impressive. -> It's not too heavy than most of its 15.6" counterparts. -> GT 840M is a decent graphics card and most recent games run with ease under medium/high settings in 1080p res. However, 4GB is an overkill and will not give better performance than a 2GB one. -> 8 GB of RAM is a necessity these days. -> i5 4210U is an okay-ish processor considering the RAM and gfx card which come with this laptop. -> It comes with Win 8.1 and even though I did not receive any Driver CD, I found all the drivers given in the hard drive. -> Battery Life is nothing exceptional. For me it does not matter that much. -> Comes with a Lenovo backpack (which is not that good) -> I also registered for one year warranty which comes free of cost. -> Viewing angle could have been better. -> It looks and feels very nice indeed. Overall, I am happy with it and am sure you'll like it too :)

Writing a review after 4months of Purchase & Use.

Good for Video Editing. Writing the review after 4 months of Purchase. Flipkart: Ordered on 5th November 2014 Midnight, Expected Deliver Date was on 8th, but got delivered on 6th Evening. Flipkart processed and delivered my product very fast. About Lenovo Z50. Very neat and clean design, looks very excellent even to this day. Performance wise very fast with its 8GB Ram which can be expandable to 16GB. U Get full HD Display, 4GB graphic memory and i5 processor that's more than enough for Video editing, Games, Movies, Design and Development. Laptop bag quality - excellent, i use it very roughly still looks great and hold's my laptop very secure. Its been more than 4months so far no heating problem, battery backup 4 hours. Very silent doesn't make any noise even to this day. Excellent built quality, my laptop fell from two feet height on its edged but nothing happened. I have been using it in outdoors and so far not even cleaned once, yet it looks like brand new. Got invade by army of ants when i left a sweet in my bag unnoticed for two days , ants went inside the laptop still i used it within one hour all ants went out nothing happened to the laptop. Keyboard is very smooth and has new close (x) and Refresh Key. I choose Lenovo as they are rigid and long lasting.
