If you’re in search of an affordable laptop that’s built for both work and play, check out the Z50 from Lenovo. With a full HD display, a nice big hard drive, and RAM to spare, this laptop can handle all of your everyday needs with ease. Better yet, it’s currently on sale for 36% off.
- Lenovo Z50 15.6-inch 1080p laptop for $599 (List price: $949.99 — Coupon code:DBZ504991022)
On the inside, this model sports a fourth generation dual-core 2GHz Intel Core i7-4510U CPU, integrated Intel HD Graphics 4400, 8GB of DDR3L RAM (1600MHz), a 500GB 5400RPM hard drive, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi support.
In addition, this gorgeous glossy 15.6-inch display supports a full HD resolution of 1920×1080, and benefits from LED backlighting. Combine that with the built-in HDMI port, and you can easily enjoy full HD movies on the big screen or on the go. It’s really a perfect laptop for those of us who want everything accessible on a single device.
With a big screen and powerful internals, there is some extra weight here. Weighing in at 5.29 pounds, this isn’t a laptop you want to carry for long distances. And while the five hour battery is more than enough to get work done while you’re away from your desk, it isn’t a great fit for those of us with limited access to power outlets.
However, the Z50 manages to stay remarkably thin. It measures about 15 inches wide, 10 and a half inches long, and just an inch high. Whether you’re stashing it in a backpack or carrying it in a messenger bag, this laptop will most certainly fit comfortably. And at such a low price, the tradeoffs in weight and battery life are relatively minor.
The Lenovo Z50 comes with Windows 8.1 (64-bit) installed, so you have full access to the Windows Store right out of the box. Even better, you won’t have to spend a dime to stay on the cutting edge. You can upgrade to Windows 10 at no additional cost, so you’ll get access to the Cortana personal assistant, the new Edge web browser, and local Xbox One game streaming.
Typically, this configuration retails for about $950, but Lenovo is currently selling it online at a steep discount. Simply use promo code “DBZ504991022” during checkout, and you’ll immediately save $350.99 off the standard retail price. And thanks to the free shipping option, you’ll save even more when you order directly from Lenovo.
