The Lenovo IdeaPad Z50 (59-442262) is a powerful gaming laptop available at a decent price. It has all the power to handle intensive games on an excellent display but misses out any user friendly OS and an optical drive in order to keep the price under control.
Display and Outfit
The Lenovo IdeaPad Z50 (59-442262) flaunts a 15.6-inch full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) TN GL Slim display which offers superior response and enhanced brightness along with ultra sharp image quality and vibrant colours. It is wrapped in a premium looking silver coloured body which has a thickness of 25mm and a weight of 2.4kg.
Processor and OS
Doing duty under the hood is a 1.7GHz Intel Core i5 processor from the recently released fifth generation series. It is aided by a standard 4GB DDR3 RAM which is further expandable up to 16GB via two DIMM slots. It lacks any OS which is a bit disappointing amidst such powerful specs.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The Lenovo IdeaPad Z50 (59-442262) comes with a 1MP webcam which can record 720p videos and handle high resolution video calls smoothly. The massive 1TB SATA hard disk relieves the user of any kind of storage problem.
The NVIDIA N15V GM graphics processor with dedicated 2GB DDR3 memory enables you to stay engrossed in intensive games on the stunning display. The stereo speakers powered by Dolby Home Theatre provide immersive gaming experience.
Battery and Connectivity
The Lenovo IdeaPad Z50 (59-442262) sips juice from a 4 cell Li-ion battery which is capable of delivering uninterrupted service for a maximum period of 5 hours. Connectivity and networking options come in the form of two USB 2.0 slots, one USB 3.0 slot, digital media reader, Bluetooth v4.0, HDMI out, WLAN and Gigabit Ethernet.
