Lenovo IdeaPad U110 overview and video


After giving the new IdeaPad U110 its 15 minutes of fame in front of the camera, we got down to business. The 11.1-inch ultraportable is built like a tank -- a...

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad U110


Years after chucking the IBM moniker, Lenovo has worked hard to produce a line of PCs that don't scream “boring business machine.” While the ThinkPad...

Charming good looks will attract the Lenovo faithful who are sick of looking funerary. Excellent business performance will shut up office critics of your “red PC (Harumph!).” Delightfully light and slim

The keyboard, though pretty, is pretty flimsy. Terminator-style face recognition will give you the heebie-jeebies and make you torch all your Schwarzenegger flicks (Especially Batman and Robin). External DVD means one more gadget to tote

Lenovo Lenovo IdeaPad U110


Lenovo's supersvelte IdeaPad U110 is about as flashy as ultraportable laptops get. Somewhere between the fire-engine red, laser-etched lid and the rugged rubbery base coating, the U110 establishe itself as a bonafide MacBook Air rival.

Gorgeous, slim and sturdy design ; Good-sized keyboard

Overly reflective display

Lenovo's consumer-y ultraportable is rugged -- and different -- enough to earn a loyal following

Lenovo Ideapad U110


The Lenovo IdeaPad U110 is a little wonder that has the looks, features, and performance numbers to go head-to-head with all the top-tier ultraportables.

Sleek, Asian-inspired design. Trendy interior. Full-size keyboard. Very good feature set. Tops in performance in its weight class. Environmentally friendly.

External optical drive is bulky and can be imposing. Sluggish hard drive. A four-cell battery alone will not cut it for travel. ; Watch the Lenovo IdeaPad U110 Video Review!

Lenovo IdeaPad U110 Review


The IdeaPad U110 has much more going for it than its artistic style and good looks, as its performance indicates. However, its closest competitor--the ASUS U2E (starting at $1,999)--features a built-in optical drive, a genuine leather casing, and a...

Ultra-fashionable design, Solid battery life, Sleek, responsive touch controls, Impressive frameless LED-backlit display

External optical drive, Glossy design picks up smudges quickly, Keyboard a bit slippery, Weak speakers

Lenovo IdeaPad U110 Review


The IdeaPad U110 is surprisingly solid in terms of build quality. The aluminum etch display cover and magnesium aluminum chassis provide both strength and light weight. You can press as hard as you want anywhere on the body of the notebook and it...

Cool design ; Light weight ; Nice battery life with extended battery ; Acceptable overall performance

Horrible screen ; Slow startup (VeriFace causes significant startup lag) ; Keyboard not good for touch typists ; Expensive

The display on the U110 is quite simply one of the worst we've seen in our office. Sure, color and brightness were fine, but the shimmering graininess and horrible levels of reflection made the screen physically painful to view for more than about 30...

Lenovo IdeaPad U110


Lenovo's bright red foray into the ultraportable consumer space is for the most part a successful one, despite a few missteps.

Exterior design is attractive, Light, Extensive, good quality accessories, Small power brick

Flimsy screen, Air vent on left-hand side, Low battery life, Veriface recognition software, Quick access buttons aren't quick access
