8 March 2014
Excerpt: Hvis du håber at snag en kvalitet Lenovo for under to tusinde dollars, så er Lenovo IdeaPad U110 er en du bør overveje. Her er nogle af de fantastiske funktioner, der gør ideen Pad U110 værd at købe: Bærbare computere er meget vigtige arbejde-station for alle, i disse dage. Desktops og laptops bliver uundværlig på grund af deres enorme forbrug. Da laptops kan ske fra det ene sted til det andet, så de er købt af næsten alle, i disse dage.
Excerpt: The Lenovo IdeaPad U110 11.1-inch laptop is a player in the latest craze for ultra-portable computing. What separates the Lenovo IdeaPad U110 is an exquisite Tendril texture of vines and buttercup flowers etched into the aluminum casing. The design is carried out strategically on the backside of the laptop. It is a conversation starter and definitely an eye catcher. The shiny black keys seem able to withstand constant use without losing the lettering or shininess.
Summary: The 11.1-inch Lenovo IdeaPad U110 is the most beautiful laptop we've seen in years, and behind those good looks is a well-appointed, fairly priced ultraportable. Despite a few minor nitpicks, we recommend the IdeaPad U110 to those who want a lightweight, eye-catching laptop for frequent travel.
Pros: Gorgeous design; lightweight, yet solid construction; sharp screen resolution; comfortable keyboard; ships with two batteries.
Cons: Lacks a built-in optical drive; glossy screen finish sometimes produces annoying reflections; piano finish on keyboard is prone to smudges; fixed configuration can't be customized; no WWAN option.
Conclusion: Most of the IdeaPad's software bundle is what you'd expect -- trial versions of Norton AntiVirus and Microsoft Office; CyberLink's Power2Go for burning music, video, and photo DVDs and CDs; a handy EasyCapture utility for taking snapshots with the 1.3-megapixel webcam above the screen. Shuttle Center II is an eye-candy alternative to Windows Media Center for perusing and using your MP3s, images, and other multimedia files.
Conclusion: The IdeaPad is an excellent freshman outing from Lenovo, especially in the style category; who would have thought Lenovo had it in them? Certainly not us, that’s for sure. We also like the form-factor a lot too, as mini-PCs like the Asus Eee PC are a bit too small for practical use, and 13.3” notebooks are basically full-sized, so the U110 fits perfectly into its own niche called “very small and very portable.
Pros: Very small and light; stylish; lots of great accessories; face recognition
Cons: Display is very grainy; keyboard is difficult to type on; no 80211.n capability
Summary: 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 solid state drive option. Nevertheless, the U110's fashion-forward design, along with its long battery life and bright LED-backlit display, make it one of our favorite ultraportables.
Summary: It looks great and has fast specifications for an ultraportable laptop. It's a good thing it comes with a second, larger battery though, because its small battery produced a very low run-time in our tests. Nevertheless, if it's a lightweight powerhouse that you want, this one is ideal.
Pros: Stylish, comfortable to use, very good performance for office applications and media encoding, very light, ships with a second, larger battery, optical drive
Cons: Screen had a grainy look to it and creaked a little when we moved it, lacks 802.11 draft-n and Gigabit networking, batteries were hard to remove
