Introducing the Lenovo IdeaPad Z370

It looks like the theme for mainstream notebooks sporting Intel’s Sandy Bridge dual-core processor is colors, specifically bright, candy-like colors. We saw the Sony Vaio C early this year which sports striking colors that illuminates and now get a load of this Lenovo IdeaPad Z370, it looks like a VAIO with the logo replaced by a Lenovo.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Z370 is simply a processor upgrade of the previous IdeaPad Z360 (which has considerably dropped its price). The Z370 has the 2nd generation Intel Core i3-2310M processor to power its attractive-looking shell, which in our case, is colored pink.

It has a slight hint of a design on its lid that’s protected by a transparent shell that wards off fingerprints. The same transparent shell coats the inside of the laptop giving it a premium appeal instead of just having a glossy paint over it. There’s also the concave, chiclet keyboard that’s really comfortable to type with.

Aside from the processor upgrade, this Z370 also packs an Nvidia GeForce 410M 1GB switchable graphics. Although the new integrated graphics of the Sandy Bridge processor already has a big improvement from previous one, you would still find comfort on the discrete GPU when playing games or editing your videos. Granted that battery life will diminish because of it, that’s where the switchable part comes in. The Z370 will automatically switch to integrated graphics if the GPU is not needed say for example you’re just composing an e-mail or writing a report.

Everything else is pretty standard for a 13-inch notebook of these days. For Php39,500, you’ll get a colorful and premium-looking 13-inch notebook with the latest Core i3 processor and a GPU to boot. Oh it comes in cool Blue and boring Black by the way. The 14-inch Z470 goes for Php41,500 and uses a Core i5 if you want your notebook to be bigger and badder.

We’ll be doing a full review of this baby soon. Meanwhile, here’s a short video of some first impressions on the IdeaPad Z370.

    Hi sir, ask ko lang if anong mas ok — Lenovo Z470 or the Asus K43 series.

    Not sure ako anong bibilhin kasi almost same price and same specs.

    I’ll be using it in the office and for photo editing, I use photoshop Cs5.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi! I’m just going to ask what are the pros and cons of buying a Lenovo product? I’m planning to buy a laptop and my choices are Lenovo Z470 (because it has core i5) and HP Envy 14.

    Hello there.I have Lenovo Z470. I bought it last 2012 at SM MEgamall (PC live). I got disappointed. After a year (2013), it suddenly stopped working. I didn’t know the exact reason. What I did was to go to an AUthorized service center. To be exact, I sent it to Lenovo concept store at MEgamall. Another disappointment. I waited for several months. However, they didn’t fix it. I just decided to pull my unit out. Habang tumatagal, dumadami ang sira sa knila. From that time, I swear not to buy from PC Live and Accent Micro (sister companies). Their service isn’t good. Sa ngaun, naghahanap pa ako ng matinong magaayos at titingin sa unit ko.
