The Lenovo IdeaPad Z500 15.6" Core i5-3230M Notebook Computer has everything you could want in a notebook, along with a few nice features that used to be exclusive to higher-end machines. It starts with the 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5-3230M dual core processor (which can be overclocked to 3.2 GHz) and continues with 6GB of 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM, and finally ends with a 1TB 5400 rpm hard drive.

The 15.6" backlit HD widescreen display has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and a 16:9 aspect ratio that ensures that you'll see movies in their original cinematic format.
