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 3000 N200

 

The Lenovo 3000 N200 is quite a nifty notebook which verges on desktop replacement. Once all the extra useless software has been stripped off, it's a robust and well performing system that is sure to find a home slung to the shoulder of a few office...

High-end components for the price, Great keyboard and touchpad, Rugged construction

Large amount of crapware, Lack of digital video out, Dodgy volume buttons, Last generation video card

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

Lenovo 3000 N200 Review

 

It's down to the extras, because the performance is pretty standard. You get Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, four USB ports, and a FireWire port. The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth can be turned on and off with the slide of a notch instead of through the OS. There's a VGA...

Lenovo 3000 N200 Laptop Review and Ratings

 

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

Lenovo 3000 N200 review

 

This bargain laptop boasts some great features and a sturdy design

Solid design ; Good quality keyboard ; Impressive feature count ; Excellent battery life

Bit too bulky to be portable ; Screen not very bright

A great keyboard and a solid design make this an excellent laptop

The Lenovo 3000 N200 (0769) is a decent, functional notebook for both personal and business use, making it a jack of all trades. Although its presenta...

Lenovo Care software, Battery life and MP3 encoding performance results

Uninspiring design

The Lenovo 3000 N200 may not excel in anything specific, but it offers a good mix of features for the home or the small business environment. The best asset of this notebook is its ability to unplug at the end of the work day and go home with you.
