Lenovo IdeaPad U150

 

Call it a netbook if you must, but Lenovo's U150 shines where many that share the category name crumble and fail. With an 11.6-inch high-resolution display, dual-core processor and a keyboard fit for the novelist, Lenovo's U150 stands as one of the...

Thin and lightweight ; Bright, high-res 11.6-inch LCD ; Spry desktop performance, handles 720p-quality Web video ; Large, multi-touch touchpad ; Firm, comfortable keyboard ; Reasonable $649 starting price ; Five-hour battery life ; HDMI and eSATA ports

Body feels slightly cheapish ; Annoying software bundle

The humble U150 has a compact, lightweight chassis fit for a netbook, but is destined for much more thanks to superior hardware – including an Intel Core 2 Duo CULV processor – shoehorned inside.

With the IdeaPad U150, Lenovo continues stepping gradually from the bookish land of ThinkPads into the world of cool ultraportables. Weighing less than 3 pounds, and stylish to boot, the U150 is an eye-catching little thing. Performance is right...

Great looks ; Reasonable performance

Unsuitable for gaming ; Keyboard feels very cheap

A nice looking-machine that sits in the dead center of our performance benchmarks.

Lenovo's snazzy but pricey 11-inch ultraportable combines an appealing design with good performance and battery life.

Lenovo IdeaPad U150 11.6-inch ultraportable hits the streets with $699 asking price

 

Just in case it had slipped your mind, now is a pretty great time to be looking for a computer. Take this IdeaPad U150 from Lenovo which just started shipping, for instance. For $699 you can get a CULV processor, 3GB of RAM and a 250GB HDD stuffed ...

Lenovo Ideapad U150 thin and light notebook review

 

There are a lot of things to like about the IdeaPad U150. It has an distinctive textured lid, an attractive two-tone keyboard, and a combo eSATA/USB port, which is something you won't find on a lot of ultraportable laptops. But there are a few down...

Lenovo IdeaPad U150

 

The IdeaPad U150 offers better performance and expansion than you'd expect from a notebook this compact, but take heed: Its soft keyboard doesn't live up to Lenovo's usual standards.

Compact size; good performance; long battery life; HDMI, eSATA ports; sharp design

Mushy keyboard; no optical drive; expensive, considering core components and size

Though the Lenovo IdeaPad U150 is more expensive than some competing 11.6-inch notebooks, it's also more full-featured than most, with its eSATA port, Bluetooth support, and HDMI output. If you need those features, and you can tolerate a slightly mushy...

Pretty good!

 

Very happy with the netbook. It's very good looking and satisfactory performance for a netbook. Keyboard is comfortable and better than comparable netbooks. This is my 3rd netbook after an Asus and Samsung and I am not going back.

Slick look, comfortable keyboard, excellent screen, HDMI out, eSATA is definitely a big plus. It's not glossy so it stays clean. Decent battery life, 64 bit compatible and very good performance compared to other netbooks

None, so far
