Conclusion: The IdeaPad U150 is yet another quality notebook offering from Lenovo. Although budget-conscious consumers looking for something in its class may be better served with the slightly more affordable Toshiba Satellite 135D, the U150 does enough to justify its price tag and should appeal to anyone who’s looking for an ultraportable laptop.
Conclusion: Many companies have built CULV-powered notebooks to bridge the awkward gap between netbooks and high-priced ultraportables, but Lenovo’s U150 comes about as close as we’ve ever seen to doing it right. Almost all the factors that make netbooks untenable for long-term computing have been fixed here, while preserving a blend of the low price and light weight that makes them so attractive.
Lenovo Ideapad U150 thin and light notebook review
2 February 2010
Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad U150 is a good looking thin and light laptop that’s a reasonably powerful alternative to a 10 inch Atom powered netbook. But it’s not the fastest system I’ve tested with an Intel CULV processor, and while it has enough graphics prowess to play some games and watch HD video, it’s not ready to challenge an NVIDIA ION system like the HP Mini 311 in the graphics department.
Summary: The IdeaPad U150 combines good performance, strong battery life, and an appealing design to create a lightweight ultraportable package. While it outperforms, outclasses, and outlasts 11.6-inch competitors like the Toshiba Satellite T115 and Dell Inspiron 11z, the Acer Aspire Timeline 1810T lasts over two hours longer on a charge, has a more responsive keyboard, and lists for only $599.
