Lenovo 3000 N100 Review

 

This Lenovo offers peppy WorldBench performance and a big hard drive, but its battery life is far from stellar.

Includes a fingerprint reader ; Strong WorldBench 5 performance

Disappointing battery life

You could do worse than the Lenovo 3000 N100. On the other hand, you could do better with a similarly configured HP Pavilion dv6000, for instance. The dv6000 lacks a fingerprint reader, but the battery life, keyboard, speakers, and expansion options...

Lenovo N100 Review (pics, specs)

 

The Lenovo N100 is a new mid-sized offering from Lenovo in the 3000 series line of notebooks. The N100 will come in 14.1" and 15.4" widescreen sizes. Prices will start at $999 for Core Duo based models. Lenovo is positioning the notebook as one for...

The N100 has lots to recommend about it. From my vantage point, it looks more like a consumer notebook with the glossy screen and plastic case. A dash of the business side has been thrown in with the fingerprint reader, DVD-RAM and more extensive...

Lenovo 3000 N100

 

The Lenovo N100 is the low-cost cousin of the Lenovo ThinkPad z60m.

Great keyboard. Affordable prices. Good management utilities.

Battery life is under 2 hours. Noisy mouse buttons.

Lenovo's 3000 N100 specs bumped

 

Looks like the Easy Cube wasn't the only thing Lenovo had to announce today. The production specs on their 3000 N100 are already about to jump from those which were originally announced -- even what PC Mag took a look at earlier in their review....

Lenovo 3000 N100 Review and Ratings

 

If your computing needs are more about business than pleasure, this configuration of the Lenovo 3000 N100 should be at the top of your list.

Excellent high-resolution wide-screen LCD ; Convenient Lenovo Care utility ; Wireless adapter supports 802.11n ; Solid configuration, performance

Under-two-hour battery life ; Weak speakers ; Older PC Card slot ; One-year support package is short for a business notebook

Lenovo N100 (0768-GCM)

 

Running one of the new Intel Core 2 Duo processors, Lenovo's N100 is quite a zippy machine. We looked at the highest specification N100 model, a noteb...

64-bit processor, Nice screen

Battery life a little lacking

The Lenovo N100 performs well, with its 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo processor and 1GB of RAM offering more than enough power for day to day desktop tasks.

Lenovo 3000 N100 (0768-A31)

 

The Lenovo 3000 N100 notebook is available in a number of configurations. Lenovo sent us two versions for testing: the 0768-A27 and the 0768-A31. The ...

Retro design, comfortable to use, good quality webcam, good build quality, Good price

No DVI

We quite liked the N100 and at this price, this iteration is well worth it.
