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

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

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad U300s


Maybe it's a cliché that big things come in small packages, but with its IdeaPad U300s, Lenovo proves there's truth in them there words.

Solid construction, solid performance, solid feature set. Keyboard is as good as it gets on an ultrabook. OneKey rescue button to restore/rebuild the laptop is a neat idea — but do we really need a standalone, physical button on the side for this? It’s...

What’s up with the backlighting? Minimal port selection, with USB ports on opposite sides of the machine. Weak clickpad

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...

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

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s Review


Like the ASUS UX31, the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s gets many things right, but not enough to beat the 13-inch MacBook Air. While it may not be as flashy, we like this Ultrabook's solid aluminum design, excellent performance, and nearly 7 hours of battery...

Attractive metal design, Good webcam, Boots fast, Runs cool

Relatively low resolution, Limited viewing angles, No SD card slot, Keyboard not backlit

Lenovo IdeaPad U300s review: 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.
