Lenovo 3000 V200 Review


The Lenovo 3000 V200 is both powerful and affordable, making it a great choice for travelers on a budget.

Bright screen ; Instant-on multimedia button

Power port crowds a USB port

If you've been looking for a nice travel notebook that won't drain your bank account, the light, comfortable, and capable V200 fills the bill

Lenovo 3000 V200


If you want the power and durability of a ThinkPad with a bit more style and sophistication, look no further than the Lenovo 3000 V200. This 4.4lb ultra-portable notebook sports everything a power user could want, including a luscious 12.1″ widescreen...

Perfect weight-to-size ratio; fast performance; gorgeous display

Very few pre-sale customization options; confusing backup software

The Lenovo 3000 V200 is ultra-portable, ultra-powerful, and downright sexy.

Lenovo 3000 V200 Review


Overall the look is quite plain and isn't likely to excite buyers as much as the latest generation of light and thin business notebooks. That said, looks may not be everything since Lenovo intends to sell this to small business consumers

Solid performance thanks to Santa Rosa processor ; Excellent keyboard ; Runs very quiet and cool ; Optional web camera provides excellent image quality ; Integrated optical drive in a 12.1" form factor for a cheap price ; Built-in media card reader and...

Design is thick and “old fashioned” compared to competing 12.1" notebooks ; Touchpad is poor and buttons are springy ; Not as rugged or well built as the Lenovo ThinkPad X series notebooks ; Tipping the scales at 4.4 lbs and with a thickness of 1.3"...

The bottom of the V200 obviously doesn't feature any ports, but it does provide access to RAM upgrades

Lenovo V200 Ultraportable First Thoughts Review (Video)


The Lenovo V200 is basically the same as the proceeding V100 in terms of build and design. The rear of the V200 has a rounded shape that's different and I think fair to say stylish in its look

You can configure up to a 2.20GHz Core 2 Duo T7500 processor with the V200 and it comes with the new Intel X3100 integrated graphics solution

Lenovo 3000 V200


The V200 doesn't look anything like a ThinkPad, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The V200's silver chassis is generic in many ways and doesn't have the sturdy magnesium alloy that surrounds the ThinkPad X60. But for a cash-strapped small...

Affordable small-business laptop. Integrated optical drive. Good performance scores

Design is a little plain. Features are ho-hum

It's a nice, affordable alternative to the Lenovo ThinkPad X60 (Vista). For those who aren't infatuated with the Lenovo brand, there are better ultraportables with better features.

Decent machine if you are in for the long haul. A bit like a VW - it will last forever, but you'd better have a good mechanic.

Durable machine. Two years old and she works like a charm after a few fixes. Easy to work on. Quality parts (mostly)

As it ships, the machine is worthless. One must upgrade from 1GB to 2GB RAM, and probably install XP or 7. Vista is a joke on 1GB of RAM. Also, the fliptop is flimsy, exposing the LCD to possible damage which Lenovo will not fix. (Believe me.)

Lenovo 3000 V200


I bought this laptop with a 1.5 GHz T5250 Core 2 Duo processor, 1GB RAM and Win XP. I bought it online from Lenovo site.

Inexpensive, feature rich

poorly built, worst tech/sales support

Consumer review by:

Lenovo 3000 V200


It runs SO slow under Vista, incredidble! This is back to Windows 3.10 from a speed perspective!

It looks good, good screen

Slow, slow, slow and very slow. Besides that, all the 'pre-settings' make that the harddisk runs full quickly

Consumer review by:

Lenovo 3000 V200


Lenovo offered to "downgrade" the machine to Windows XP to try to speed it up. I declined and returned the machine, not wanting to spend my time doing their work. They charged me a 15% "Restocking" Fee that was not disclosed in the order.

Looks great and very light

Very Slow and difficult to use
