Lenovo 3000 C200

 

The C200 has very good components inside, with a sub-par finish on the outside.

Excellent battery endurance • Rugged design • Small footprint

Uneven screen brightness • Tiny keyboard • Tablet functionality costs more

Lenovo 3000 C200

 

The Lenovo 3000 C200, the company's second stab at a budget C-series laptop, has sleek looks and solid performance.

Sleeker design than the previous version. Excellent keyboard. Core 2 Duo processor and 1GB of RAM.

Noisy mouse buttons.

Lenovo 3000 C200 8922 (Core 2 Duo 1.66 GHz review: Lenovo 3000 C200 8922 (Core 2 Duo 1.66 GHz

 

Inexpensive; strong performance for the price; lengthy battery life; comfortable keyboard; solid assortment of ports and connections; robust system-management and help utility.

Standard-aspect display with low native resolution; shallow mouse keys; one-year warranty is short for a business model; few dedicated media controls; no option for a fingerprint reader.

The Lenovo 3000 C200 forgoes flashy extras and instead delivers solid Core 2 Duo performance at an impressively low price.

Lenovo C200 Review

 

Compared to the previous C100, you can see right away that the newer model is much faster, and on par with the majority of new laptops out right now. The only part that changed from the C100 to a lesser component in the C200 is the battery. The old...

Whisper quiet cooling system ; Very strong screen hinges ; Comfortable Thinkpad grade keyboard ; Improved spring loaded SD slot ; High performance with the Core 2 Duo CPU ; Sleek Design

Battery life dropped slightly from the old C100 model ; Screen could be improved with higher contrast, or better viewing angles

Like most laptops these days, some of the included software isn’t always welcome. The difference between out-of-the-box performance and after a good spring cleaning can be like night and day. If you decide to go with a fresh Windows install, I would...

Lenovo 3000 C200 Review and Prices

 

Lenovo's 3000 C200 series of business laptop computers stand out in the world of widescreen displays as these more traditional portables offer a square screen to look at.

Lenovo C200 All-In-One PC: Now That's Called Value For Money - Tech2

 

An all-in-one PC for less than 22K, and a good one at that.

Lenovo 3000 C200 TZ04MUK review

 

Beneath the corporate exterior is a powerful laptop

Long battery life ; Low price

Basic specification

It's got a good battery life and it's fast too - all in all, a good proposition

Lenovo 3000 C200 TZ04MUK

 

It's a couple of years since Lenovo purchased IBM's personal computer division, but its laptops haven't changed too much. This one looks classy enough, but the silver and black styling still has a slightly corporate feel to it

Spectacular pictures, Good connectivity, Lots of features, Long battery life, Low price

Not cheap, Black levels 'merely' solid, Only average sound, Basic specification

It's got a good battery life and it's fast too - all in all, a good proposition

Consumer review by: alishahoo (cnet.com)

"There is no good reason they are here. Know this."

 

When their plant goes up in flames at some point, it will probably release a deadly gas for the whole population to die with. Someone opened the door and welcomed the vampire in. Good job.

There are NO pros, except for the poor simpletons who get a job there until the agenda has been met.

See above. The cons are pretty bad. See North Korea. They could fix that, but they haven't. My dad was a vet, and he warned me about this.

"different experience"

 

My overall experience with this bare-bones machine has been great. I was flying in very small planes quite a bit - twin otters - and luggage had to be stowed; and they weren't always gentle. The only damage, a small crack near the left hinge, is the...

Value for money...simply great.
