Display

Featuring a13.3”screen size, the Lenovo Ideapad Z370 is a very ideal solution in case what you are looking for is a notebook PC that is not too big or heavy. However, small screen size does not necessarily mean low resolution, as most people may have thought earlier. As a matter of fact, this particular laptop manufactured byIBMis able to offer a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels at the maximum. In addition to that, the display features the LED backlight technology, too.

Central Processing Unit (CPU)

However, of course, a laptop is not all about the display. The processor, for instance, is also crucial. Without it, you can’t expect the laptop to even boot at all, let alone work. Fortunately, the Lenovo Ideapad Z370 comes bundled with Intel’s 2nd generation (Sandy Bridge) CPU running at 2.3GHz clock speed. The Intel Core i5 2410M will make sure you will always have the power required to do the work you need to do with the Lenovo laptop.

Random Access Memory (RAM)

Yet, to make things even better, the Lenovo Ideapad Z370 laptop comes offering 4GBDDR3 that will give you even more power. Or, if you don’t think it is sufficient just yet, you can upgrade the memory to 8 GB in total thanks to the dual memory slots available. With this added power, you will be able to enjoy multitasking or even impressive gaming experiences.

Video Graphics Adapter (VGA)

Well, the latter, of course, requires the support of a reliable graphics card. In this case, you are provided with the Intel HD Graphics 3000 VGA card. Achieving a 3DMark Vantage score of 1521, this particular graphics card is least likely to complain when you ask it to run even a very demanding game. This is seemingly possible because of the GDDR3 it is bundled with as well.

Storage Media

In terms of storage, you will have more than the spaces you need. IBM has equipped this particular laptop with a 750GB HDD. Keeping in mind that this HDD comes from the Western Digital Corporation, you won’t have to worry about its quality. WDC is one of the world’s most reputable HDD manufacturers you can possibly find to date.

However, if a 750GB HDD is not enough and you require more storage spaces, IBM has provided its Lenovo Ideapad Z370 with a DVD writer you can take advantage of. With this optical drive, all you have to do is simply to buy as many DVD discs as you want to write your data on.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections

When you purchase this laptop, you won’t likely regret when it comes to connection. The Lenovo Ideapad Z370 comes supporting Ethernet connection in addition to Wi-Fi b/g/n so that you can always connect to the internet. Also, there is a Bluetooth connectivity module so that you can exchange the data on your laptop with the data on your mobile devices such as a smartphone.

Ports

Now, ifLAN, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are simply inadequate, you won’t have to worry. You still have a lot of other connection interfaces that you can use on the Lenovo Ideapad Z370. This laptop can offer you 3USB2.0 ports, 5-in-1 card reader, 1 eSATA port and 1 HDMI display port.
