Review Lenovo 3000 N200 Notebook


Beginner. The Lenovo 3000 N200 should be a 15.4 inch notebook wit

Reasonable starter price; Good workmanship; Solid input devices; Switch for Bluetooth/WLAN; Fingerprint reader; Built-in web cam; Bluetooth; Brilliant display; Homogeneous distribution of brightness; Passable office performance; A lot of hard disk...

Sensible coating of the lid; Pos1 and End are missing; Low RAM capacity; No Twain compatible web cam driver; No Gigabit LAN; Loud noise emissions; Loud DVD drive; No recovery media; Slow HDD recovery

The reviewed Lenovo 3000 N200, model number TY2BBGE, costs in Germany 490.- Euro plus shipment fee at the time of writing. If you immediately upgrade the RAM capacity to 2 GByte, you'll get a notebook with great price-performance ratio.

Lenovo 3000 N200


With lively performance, a fairly light weight, and several popular features, the Lenovo 3000 N200 would be a good business notebook, but its mediocre battery life won't please frequent travelers.

Big screen, Comfortable mouse buttons

Tinny-sounding stereo speakers, Slow-working volume buttons

The peppy Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop has nice features but mediocre battery life.

Lenovo N200 Review


The N200 is a very solid laptop with minimalistic design features. The basic silver paintjob and dark grey plastic inside don't automatically stick out from the crowd in terms of looks. Where it really shines is build quality, ease of upgrading, and...

Sturdy build quality and very easy to upgrade components ; Bright and Vibrant screen ; Comfortable Touchpad with great tactile feedback from the buttons ; ThinkPad style keyboard

Vertical viewing angles could be improved ; Cooling fan with ADHD

An odd power management quirk with this laptop is it gives no estimation of how much battery time you have left. It will show the percentage of charge left in the battery, but no countdown of time remaining. I noticed this in the Lenovo C200 as well

Review: The Lenovo 3000 N200


Lenovo garnered worldwide headlines with its higher-end, ThinkPad X300. The Test Center now looks at the value end of its product line, and reviews the Lenovo 3000 N200.

Lenovo 3000 N200 Laptop


Thanks to its solid performance and quality feature set, you might be able to overlook the Lenovo 3000 N200's complete lack of visual appeal.

Decent performance; gorgeous high-res screen; plenty of features

Bland styling; cheap-feeling construction; DVD playback in Media Center is problematic

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Consumer review by:

Piece of crap.


Good laptop, but just not durable. Not recommended.

Works fine as a computer

Falls to pieces as soon as warranty expires. Hinges, keyboard, charger, just too flimsy in construction

Amazing performance, breathtaking screen


Great! Preformace+Visibility. For full productivity. No redundant games.

I have a 1680x1050 screen (15'4). The Lenovo N200-3000 has a truly amazing picture. The performance is also impressive (2.2GHz machine + 2GB RAM)

redundant fingerprint device. Keyboard is designed so that end/home need Function key hold

Purchased new, unboxed placed next to router. Powered up, setup & clicked on Register. Waited, then nothing. No wireless connection. I called ATT, passed on to Linksys & after both identified the problem as a hardware config issue. Lenovo confirmed the...
