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'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

For over a decade, IBM ThinkPads have been the gold-standard for laptop reliability, performance, and durability. Though IBM often eschewed the multimedia bonuses that made notebooks from Apple and Sony popular, the ThinkPad was always first-in-class...

Exceptional keyboard; competitively priced; IBM service and support

Finicky fingerprint scanner; small trackpad; battery is not the best for DVD movie playback

The Lenovo V100 should definitely be at the top of your short list.

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...

Good performance with the Core Duo processor Runs very quiet and cool Good keyboard Great image quality on the optional web camera Integrated optical drive in a 12.1" form factor 5-in-1 media card reader is really nice to have Included Lenovo Care...

Design is ho-hum and not as exciting as some other competing 12.1" notebooks Touchpad is poor and mouse buttons are awful Provided BisonCap web camera software is clunky at best, borderline unusable Not as rugged or well built as the ThinkPad X60...

The Lenovo V100 is a decent portable notebook offering and nice addition to the 3000 series. I think the key for the V100 will be pricing, the 12.1" form factor is turning into a competitive field as is witnessed by the release of the XPS M1210 and the...

Small businesses will appreciate the bundled management applications such as the Lenovo Care application, which is a toned-down version of the robust and feature-rich ThinkVantage suite. It offers many of the same features, such as Rescue and Recovery,...

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

No discrete graphics. No TrackPoint

The Lenovo 3000 V100 is a powerful lightweight that comes complete with a built-in optical drive and Intel Core Duo components. Its 4.4-pound weight won't be a drag either.

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...

The Lenovo 3000 V100 is a good all round notebook that also happens to be fairly small.

instantON technology, lightweight, great keyboard, excellent webcam, DVD multi recorder

Images are bright, colourful and sharp

Ultra-lightweight

Limited networking

A useful addition for business users is the addition of a fingerprint reader, which adds a biometric layer of defence. For Internet use, taking photos and even network conferencing, a 1.3-megapixel camera sits above the screen
