Window 7 drivers for the P500 or Z500 are not available

Window 7 drivers for the P500 or Z500 are not available, is this correct?

I checked the download support from lenovo and they are not there. Is there another place to get them?

Actually well the hardware of both the p500 and the z500 are built for windows 8 only. It would be a long time for the drivers for windows 7 to be released.

No worries
Everything takes time. It will only be another month or so till the win 7 driver get released. Patience is the key here. Rest is upto you as wont force you. And win 8 is not bad too. Maybe after sometime you wont even need win 7.

thanks for the responses. Re: Window 7 drivers for the P500 or Z500 are not available

Thanks for the responses. But I may not be able to wait, so in the mean time I found a unit with this number  435822U

This one has w7 home and I3 500gig 4gig 1g lan. pretty much what I want.

The question is which model of the Lenovo is it?

 It is described as Lenovo - 15.6" Laptop - 4GB Memory - 500GB Hard Drive - Black. lenovoblack.png

I believe that a 4358-22U is an IdeaPad N580.

You are correct in the looks, but the n580 is a Intel® Pentium® processor unit.

The above image/ model  has an I3,

By picture comparison, I think is in the g series. not sure at all.

Is there a model no table to match the Lenovo unit model?

My mistake. It is n580. Updated to the new processor I3.

I will check the drivers.

Thanks for the input.

The n580 has drivers for w7 and w8. Perfect. I will order that unit right away.

Thanks to all for their assistance.
