Is there a Caps Lock display? What does it look like?

2013-05-02, 4:52 AM

Hello, 

 

I'm currently shopping for a notebook. I stopped by a local retailer to check out the IdeaPad Z580, but there is no indication if the CAPS LOCK is on or off. 

 

There is no keyboard LED light (which I would prefer), and there was no onscreen display.

 

I then stopped by another retail outlet, and checked out the Lenovo there also, again no indication if the CAPS LOCK is on or off.

 

I noticed in the download/driver section there is a driver for CAPS LOCK / NUM LOCK on-screen-display

Not sure why the in-store Z580 displays didn't work; maybe because they where running Windows 8?

 

My Samsung laptop (stolen) had an on-screen caps lock display, but the icon was very cartoonish and should I say... stupid looking. What does Lenovo's CAPS LOCK and NUM LOCK indicator look like?

Lenovo Solution Center for Windows 8

 

How nice that the Essiantials Lenovo G580 gets this suit, but the IdeaPad Z580 doesn't.

 

I guess Lenovo just slapped installed Windows 8 into the IdeaPad, and shipped them off to consumers/retailers? 

 

Man, I really wanted to purchase this notebook :( Guess I will just keep looking

I ended up buying an HP!! If Lenovo fixed their on-screen indicator for Windows 8, they would have gained me as a customer.

 

Very happy with the HP.
