IdeaPad Z580 Notebook (Q).

2013-02-08, 15:50 PM

Looking to choose between Z580 IdeaPad and T530 laptop.
This will be my first laptop. Been a desktop power user most of my life
The notebook specifications for the Z580 are: I7 3520M, 2.9 GHz, 15”, Win 7 , 4G Ram, 500 HD. 

 

A couple of quick questions on the Z580 notebook:

 

What would the average battery life, I can expect(from this notebook) given that it has a 6 cell lithium?
My web activities will be: Web surfing, Email, Reading social networks occasionally Watching movies.

Can I buy/replace the 6 cell battery on the Z580 with a 9 cell lithium after I purchase the laptop?
Will a 9 cell fit in this model?
In your opinion is the wireless connection steady i.e. minimal dropping of connection?

 

Thanks for your help.
TC.

If long battery life and wireless connectivity are most important for you, you should get the thinkpad since their batteries have more WHr than an ideapad for the same 6-cell, though the batteries are heavier. Thinkpads usually have better wifi out of the factory, but you can install a much better wifi if you opt for the ideapad which comes with an entry level wifi adapter. One more thing, the battery with the Z-580 only comes with 6-cell while the thinkpad has the option for 9-cell battery.
