Lenovo IdeaPad Z370 Pink

Lenovo are a well respected brand in the world of computing with their Think Pad range of business laptops but, perhaps, not so well known for producing the consumer range laptops which go by the name of IdeaPad. However, this is going to change if they continue to produce machines that look as good as the new 13.3 inch Z370 which goes on sale from 1st November.

The ideal size between a netbook and a full sized laptop the 13.3 inch Lenavo has all the features without the bulk – and this stunning raspberry pink casing really is a beauty to behold.

The high definition screen is perfect for catching-up on all your favourite TV shows or for watching DVD’s – and with twin stereo speakers featuring SRS Premium Sound audio enhancement the sound quality isn’t compromised either.

With the lid closed you see the 3D effect relief pattern which provides this laptop with far from ordinary looks. Though just because it looks good doesn’t mean it can’t hold its own in terms of performance with the best of them.

You get the option of an Inel Core i3 or a Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB  or 750GB hard drive.  The premium model features an NVIDIA Geforce 410M Graphics card and both models have a built-in web cam and Wi-Fi.

Connections and ports

Connections include an HDMI port, 4 in 1 memory card reader, headphone/mic sockest, USB ports on both sides and a built in disc drive.

VeriFace ID Technology

A fun feature of the Lenovo IdeaPad Z370 is VeriFace technology which scans your face when you log-in to make sure you are the authorised user. It’s even clever enough to detect head movement so simply holding a picture in front of the camera will not work – and you can enable multi-users if you want to.

Shame about the battery?

The only criticim is the battery life which although stated at up to 6 hours has been reported to much less during continuous use. Cnet recently did an extensive review and the battery lasted just short of 3 ½ hours under test. This isn’t really bad but soemthing you may want to consider if you want to use your laptop while travelling?
