    Strong intel i7 processor keeps everything running quickly with no frustration. Decent dedicated graphics card allows most games to be played smoothly (especially when lower graphics settings are set in game) . Pretty nice screen and overall design. Price is very good for what you get.
    Keyboard feels rather cheap, bulging downwards ever so slightly when pressure is applied to its center ( as in when typing). While this has not detracted too much from my own experience, it may irritate those who type often. However it is by no means a deal breaker.

    The bad cancels out any good.
    The graphics card keeps failing and it's incredibly slow.

    The mouse buttons on the tochpad need a unusual high rate of pressure to be activated (especially regarding the left mouse button equivalent this is some kind of annoying)

    The SSD drive is nice... Quick boot and load times. Dedicated graphics card and lovely performance. Good looks.
    The keyboard is the worst keyboard I have ever used. It doesnt register a type in every third word on average which is annoying. the space key is especially annoying. you have to hit the middle of it otherwise it doesnt register the action. The worst keyboard I have ever used. If you plan on typing a lot this laptop aint for you despite the amazing performance. I read about the cons on the keyboard but didnt expect it to be this bad. Battery life is ok.

  • Ask an Owner

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

    1. Nadia asked on
      It probably has an obvious answer but do the z series have the ability to connect to wifi?
      1. Ciarán replied on
        Yes they do.
      2. Mara replied on
        I own a z50 which has an integrated wireless adapter but I think that is probably true for all the z series. You can check the tech spec to be 100% sure on the model you choose, it usually is in the same item as bluetooth
      3. Mar replied on
        yup. no probs. I have wifi in my house. I never connect via cable
    2. John asked on
      Does it come with the 3D camera? I can't see where to select it when ordering.
      1. Albin replied on
        3D camera ? No,definitely not with Z50-70.
    3. John asked on
      Does this model have a backlit keyboard?
      1. Anne replied on
        No the keyboard is not back lit. Small light on caps and num lock keys only.
      2. Jack replied on
        Mine does, but it doesn't mean the newer machines do, that feature is inconsistent on that model.
        All older ones did have it, most newer ones do not.
    4. Damien asked on
      Hi - is this laptop eligible for a free upgrade to windows 10?
      1. Mara replied on
        Yes. At least, mine came with Windows 8 installed and there was a notification to upgraded for free to Windows 10.
    5. Kyle asked on
      Does it work with civilization beyond Earth
      1. Albin replied on
        I havent play that game but after checking a little on google I am sure that this laptop would do the job perfectly.
      2. Mar replied on
        I thought it seemed a bit slow for gaming. There are memory grabbing apps that come with the package. Uninstall them first. I bought it for development and it suits my purpose perfectly but I see slowdowns on vids which would mean that games could experience the same slowdowns
    6. Kyle asked on
      Can this laptop be able to play stratagy games like xcom enemy Unknown
      1. Keith replied on
        Yes, I've played that game myself on this laptop. It preforms well for strategy games, I play a lot of Civ5 and EU4 on mine.
    7. Dan asked on
      How to get a coupon for the discount?
      1. Alan replied on
        I think you need to be part of a group scheme. The coupon is then sent to you by email. Hope this helps. Alan.
