Lenovo Z51 Laptop Review – Is it any good?

If you’re a student and you basically use your laptop for various academic activities the Lenovo Z51 might be ideal for you. There are very few laptops capable of matching the Lenovo Z51’s style and versatility.


The laptop definitely feels like a tank when you hold it for the first time. It has good weight and with silver, brushed-metal finished keyboard and monitor it creates a symmetrical look that looks extremely stunning.

The Z51 also features a Full HD (FHD), 1,920 x 1,080 resolution screen which makes the Images come out crisp and detailed.

The Lenovo Z51 has one of the best keyboards on a laptop with it’s chicklet style keys that run almost all the way across the 15-inch device. The keys themselves are very responsive.

For the price of 110 thousand naira the Lenovo Z51 might be overpriced. The performance isn’t great for the price it’s just decent. If it was priced between N65,000N75,000 I’d easily recommend it but while I don’t recommend the Z51 entirely, I’d say that if a beautiful , non-touch FHD display and a slick-looking chassis are your priorities, the Z51 excels in both departments, if not look else where.
