Lenovo Z70-80

 

Quite light considering the screen size. Excellent performance for the price display is crystal clear

Could do with a backlit keyboard and Cd tray feels a bit flimsy.

Does everything an i5 should do, it Fly`s . Good sound. Good graphic`s. A great all round Laptop . I would have given it a full10 if it loaded W7 Pro .

Comes with W8.1 Took it to my I.T guy to install W7 pro, one week later found it impossible there was something stopping him from doing it .He gave it to another I.T engineer over the weekend just in case he was missing something . No luck there .All...

Great clear bright non reflective screen

Poor internet connectivity. Buffering on Youtube which was a surprise something I've not experienced since dial up. I had to install Smartvideo to resolve it. Very strange on a laptop of this specification.
