    Sturdy laptop, well built, comfortable keyboard, runs pretty quickly even when using 2 external monitors. Great purchase, would recommend.
    The shift keys are smaller than I am used to, but it's just a case of getting used to the new ones!

    The keyboard and pad are great. I also love the design of the machine.
    I wanted something the whole family could use. The bigger screen and did makes it a great 'home' laptop.

    very sleek looking and performs well and is very light for type of laptop
    mouse sensitivity and control can be a little annoying as it sometimes over responds and then does not at all, also the keypad is a little cheap as it does not feel very robust but then for the price it works fine

    High specification for this price range.
    The connection to the projector cable does not work! I was left looking very stupid when the projector port did not connect at a family gathering. This is a design fault as the plastic lip around the edge stops the cable from connecting flush. Fortunately there ewas an older laptop on hand, s

    Here's a list of the questions other shoppers have asked owners of the Z50

    1. mike asked on
      Does it have an ethernet connection?
      1. Cristian replied on
        looks like that on the left side of keybord and next to the hdmi conexion. I never tryed
    2. rianna asked on
      is it lightweight and easy to carry around? i currently use a macbook air and am looking for something similar in weight
      1. Louise replied on
        No idea how much a macbook air weighs... but I imagine it is light. I wouldn't recommend getting this if your sole purpose is to carry it around every. It isn't extremely heavy... but I would recommend a back pack rather than a side satchel.
    3. chrissy asked on
      Hey! Just looking to know if this laptop is good at storing around 150,000 photos and still able to browse web and watch videos without running very slow?
      1. Agate replied on
        I currently have around 20GB of images on my laptop, depending on the software used the image sorting can be more or less demanding, however I have never had an issue with doing multiple tasks while the imaging software is on.
    4. Gilbert asked on
      Is it okay to leave my laptop open and plugged all night? I'm using a Lenovo Z51 Loptop. Thanks!
      1. Duncan replied on
        I have encountered no problem leaving mine open and plugged in all night.
    5. Connor asked on
      Hi i was wondering if this laptop will run gta 5
      1. Andrew replied on
        Haven't tried that game yet but if you look on youtube you can see some gameplay on this laptop. It will run but don't expect to be on ultimate graphics. If its just casual if will be fine if you are more serious about your games then get a desktop or a Lenovo Y50 or Y70.
    6. Jakeh asked on
      just looking at this laptop as a general laptop and for gaming purposes. can it run fifa 15 comfortably and smoothly?
      or do you know of anyother laptops that do that you could reccomend, for a reasonable price?:)
      1. Alexander replied on
        I don't know because I never got around to playing games on it! I returned it because the VGA port didn't work.
        Check the game spec and match it to the laptop you want, have you thought about a low end gaming laptop?
    7. Rachel asked on
      Is the hard drive a full 1tb SSD or is it in fact 2 disks... 1 1tb normal disk & 1 smaller SSD with the OS on?
      1. Adam replied on

        It's 1TBÉ there is 888GB on one of the partitions and 25GB on the second one what concains the lenovo backup stuff. The bigger one has the windows on it. For me it's not the ideal solution because it's easy to lose all data in case of any error, but this laptop is mainly for work purposes so I had backup on my mobile SSD. As usual I recommend to format the whole hard drive some waz and make one partition for windows, one for the backup and one for your own data.

        In case of any question feel free to ask. Hope I could help!
    8. Tracy asked on
      Does it have USB ports as I use a usb stick at college . Can you play a sims cd disc game on it
      1. John replied on
        yes it has 3 USB ports and there is no reason why you cant play your game
