Lenovo 3000 V100 Laptop


Lenovo's latest ultraportable, the 3000 V100, offers good performance, light weight, and plentiful multimedia features for a reasonable $1599 (as of 6/26/2006). Though I found much to like, its disappointing keyboard is a reminder that this is not a...

Good speed and battery life ; Instant-on multimedia

Mouse buttons are uncomfortable to use

The V100 is a nice ultraportable with plenty of get up and go, but other notebooks in the same weight and price range have better keyboards

Lenovo 3000 V100


Whether you'll be commuting to and from the office or jet-setting coast to coast, the Lenovo 3000 V100 has the computing power and flexibility you need at a price you'll definitely like.

Swift performance. ThinkPad-like keyboard. Intel Core Duo processor. Integrated optical drive. Fingertip reader.

No discrete graphics. No TrackPoint.

Review Lenovo 3000 V100


Lenovo 3000 V100 is one hard to define notebook. Due to its wide ...

keyboard, quiet and efficient fan, good performance with limited power consumption, fine customer service on www, decent webcam

no clip keeping the lid closed, touchpad keys, viewing angles in vertical range

While being much criticized by others, the battery life seemed satisfactory to us. The best illustration for that observation is our story of the runtime test, which we had to make away from our office. We took the laptop to a nearby WiFi hotspot, in...

Lenovo V100 Review (pics, specs)


The Lenovo V100 rounds out the Lenovo 3000 series by filling in the ultraportable gap. The 12.1-inch widescreen V100 isn't as thin and light as its cousin ThinkPad X60s, but with a built-in optical drive and 1.3 megapixel web camera it's more...

Lenovo V100


The Lenovo V100 has a lot of good features, including a Lenovo Care program that acts as "tech support" to help users via a few mouse clicks.

HardwareCentral - Lenovo 3000 V100 Review.


Nor is Lenovo all work and no play: Press another button during startup, and the system skips Windows in favor of a quick-launch console for playing MP3 songs, DVDs, or slide shows or video clips on the hard disk. Some of the keyboard navigation...

Speaking of the two-button touchpad, it took us a while to learn to keep our tapping finger clear of the vertical-scrolling area at its right edge, but it was otherwise a smooth operator. We had mixed feelings, however, about the Lenovo's keypad: It...

Lenovo 3000 V100 Ultra Portable Notebook


The V100 offers a lot of ThinkPad quality but at a lower cost. So why does it fall short?

The trackpad is on the small side but does the job, but the mouse keys have a wobbly and slightly flimsy feel to them. To the right of this is a fingerprint reader. This is a technology that has been carried over from IBM's ThinkPad range. Once you've...
