Lenovo IdeaPad U300s Review

 

Lenovo also brings its A-game to the Ultrabook party. And well it should, since it's asking almost $1,500 for the IdeaPad U300s. That's premium, business-ultraportable price territory. It's therefore apropos that the U300s has the most businessy...

Attractive design; high quality; Core i7 and 256GB SSD

Expensive; no media reader; lower-res screen than UX31E

Ports include one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, full-size HDMI, and a headphone/mic combo. Lenovo is alone in this pack for excluding a media reader. A small button on the notebook’s left side launches Lenovo’s OneKey Recovery, which walks you through creating...

Review Lenovo IdeaPad U300s Notebook

 

Twiggy. Following Acer and Asus, Lenovo now appears in the ring o

Excellent manufacturing quality; Very fast system start; Good application performance; Elegant design; High mobility; Low noise development; SSD

Dark and reflective screen with a low contrast; Restricted scope of interfaces; Lack of upgrade options; Average input devices; Charging electronics throttles the processor

The U300s faces the Zenbook UX31 from Asus, the Aspire S3 from Acer and the leader of the 13.3 inch category, Apple with its MacBook Air. Has been around longer on the market: The Samsung 900X3A with the likely best screen in this category.

Lenovo U300s Ultrabook Review

 

Lenovo's U300s marks the official launch of Ultrabooks in India. A new segment coined by Intel, Ultrabooks can be thought of as a more powerful and portable version of a netbook. Apple first made inroads with this segment when they first announced the...

At Rs.67,990, it is a little bit cheaper than a similarly spec’d MacBook Air, but overall, it’s still pretty steep. If Lenovo dropped the price to about 45-50K, then it would make a very good buy. Sure it may not have a LAN jack, but honestly, I didn’t...

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s Review: Beauty and the Beast

 

Lenovo's new Ultrabook features a 13.3-inch display, Core i7 processor and 256GB SSD. Those are nice specs for a premium thin and light laptop, but are the build quality problems a deal breaker? Read our review of the IdeaPad U300s to find out.

Good keyboard ; Excellent performance ; Sleek design

Flexible chassis ; No media card reader

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s: Light, Luxurious

 

If there's a laptop that deserves the moniker "Ultrabook"--a term that Intel introduced (and trademarked) earlier this year for a class of very slim and light laptops--it's the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s. Not because it's faster or beefier than the...

Velvety looks and feel ; Great keyboard and touchpad for an ultrabook

No Etherent or SDHC card slot ; A little pricey for its performance level

The U300s ameliorates its high price and slightly slow performance with a classy and very usable design.

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s review

 

Review enough Ultrabooks and you'll start to wrestle with this idea of value. We've seen cheap ones that don't perform well and expensive ones that do.

Tasteful design, well-made ; Comfortable keyboard, smooth trackpad ; Insanely fast boot time, runs cool

No SD slot ; No backlit keyboard ; Low-res display

On tap here: fast performance, a tasteful design and the best keyboard / trackpad we've yet seen on an Ultrabook. It's too bad, then, that at this price it's missing key features like a memory card slot, higher-res display and backlit keyboard.

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s ultrabook review

 

Months before Intel decided to jump-start its new ultrabook category, Lenovo made an extremely thin laptop which essentially fit 95 percent of Intel's vision: the IdeaPad U260. The aluminum-wrapped laptop, which came out last...

Very unique, rigid design ; Wonderfully spaced and comfortable keyboard ; Best touchpad among ultrabooks

No backlit keyboard ; No SD card slot ; More expensive than the competition ; Screen resolution could be better

The U300s’ captivating design and battery life make it a great laptop, but Lenovo still hasn't caught up to Apple's MacBook Air

Expert review by:

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s

 

Much has been made (certainly by us) of Intel's plans to promote a new "Ultrabook" laptop designation, which refers to something along the lines of an 11- to 13-inch laptop, less than 18 millimeters thick, with SSD storage, and running on current-gen...

Lenovo's IdeaPad U300s is the coolest-looking of the new generation of Ultrabook laptops, and packs in a large SSD drive, USB 3.0, and more.

Our more expensive configuration offers no discount from a comparable MacBook Air, and leaves out some basic ports and connections.

Lenovo's stylish U300s Ultrabook is one of the best-looking Windows laptops we've seen and matches Apple's MacBook Air nearly spec for spec. The entry-level version is $100 less than Apple's, but that discount vanishes on the higher-end model.

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s

 

Lenovo doesn't miss a trick, and I'm not just saying that because the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s' ($1,495 list) startup wallpaper shows a picture of the system with its available accessories and part numbers. The 2.9-pound Lenovo U300s is an elegant entry...

First-class design. Excellent keyboard. WiDi

No memory-card slot or Ethernet port. Sealed battery. Premium price

The Lenovo IdeaPad U300s, Lenovo's entry into the ultrabook arena, is as well-engineered as you'd expect, but it's not a knockout blow to its competitors.

Lenovo Ideapad U300s

 

The Lenovo IdeaPad U300s is a consumer ultrabook that offers an attractive design and a good amount of processing power.

The U300s is something of a departure for the company. Previously, Samsung laptops had mostly been of the sleek black variety, similar to the LenovoThinkpad range. This is an entirely different beast, with its book-inspired styling and its...
