The IdeaPad Z565 is a mainstream multimedia laptop from Lenovo, released in June 2010. Featuring a 15.6-inch widescreen display, this laptop’s screen has a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Quad-core, triple-core and dual-core AMD Phenom II-based processors are available in addition to some lower-end dual and single core chips as configuration options. Numerous graphics choices are available as well, including the high-end Radeon HD 5470 with 1GB of video memory. This notebook exclusively offers AMD and ATI options, whereas the IdeaPad Z560 offers components from Intel and Nvidia while maintaining the same screen size and a similar weight. Users can add up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, and up to 640GB of hard drive storage. A Blu-ray Disc drive is an optional upgrade from standard DVD on the Z565, which can be used in conjunction with Dolby’s Advanced Audio technology. Those who tend to watch movies on their laptops will likely appreciate the “OneKey Theater II” button, a feature that will automatically tune the sound and visual settings to match the current environment.
