Summary:

Weighing in at only 6.4 pounds the Lenovo Ideapad Z710 is ideal for anyone with a disability where weight, vision, touch, and sound functionality are factors. The Z710 delivers a vibrant 17.3 inch FHD LED display with an integrated camera (1920x1080). Combined with Windows 8.1 and its accessibility features this combination of hardware and software we found to be very beneficial.

Weighing in at only 6.4 pounds the Lenovo Ideapad Z710 is ideal for anyone with a disability where weight, vision, touch, and sound functionality are factors. The Z710 delivers a vibrant 17.3 inch FHD LED display with an integrated camera (1920x1080). Combined with Windows 8.1 and its accessibility features this combination of hardware and software we found to be very beneficial.

When we evaluated laptop computers we looked at the manufacture, the size of computer and the features of the computer. Disabled individuals tend to have different needs and usage requirements. The Z710 offers an extended wide keyboard which makes the keys more distributed from left to right compared to a smaller laptop. This allows more room for fingers between each key. Tip: Turn on the Magnifier in Windows 8.1 to increase the size of what you are viewing.

The Z710 also ships with dual JBL designed speakers featuring Dolby Home Theater sound quality. This can be very helpful for anyone who is hearing impaired as it provides superior sound quality and clarity. The Z710, Model Number 59436369, we tested had the 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4710MQ Processor installed and its performance was very fast. If you are looking for a large hard drive the Z710 we tested ships with 1 Tb of storage capacity.

If you require a Blu-ray player look at the Z710 Model Number 59436366. If you require Bluetooth support all of the Z710 models we looked at shipped standard with Bluetooth 4.0. This can support adaptive devices and software.
