Lenovo IdeaPad U150 Review

1 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Call it a netbook if you must, but Lenovo’s U150 shines where many that share the category name crumble and fail. With an 11.6-inch high-resolution display, dual-core processor and a keyboard fit for the novelist, Lenovo’s U150 stands as one of the most livable ultra-portables we’ve tested. One look at the Lenovo U150 and you might chalk it up to just another netbook. It has the size (about three quarters of an inch thick), and the weight (2.97 pounds) but not the specs.
  • Pros: Thin and lightweight, Bright, high-res 11.6-inch LCD, Spry desktop performance, handles 720p-quality Web video, Large, multi-touch touchpad, Firm, comfortable keyboard, Reasonable $649 starting price, Five-hour battery life, HDMI and eSATA ports
  • Cons: Body feels slightly cheapish, Annoying software bundle

  • Excerpt: The IdeaPad U150 offers better performance and expansion than you'd expect from a notebook this compact, but take heed: Its soft keyboard doesn't live up to Lenovo's usual standards.
  • Pros: Compact size, Good performance, Long battery life, HDMI, eSATA ports, Sharp design
  • Cons: Mushy keyboard, No optical drive, Expensive, considering core components and size

Lenovo IdeaPad U150 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
25 January 2010
  • 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.
