Summary: if you plan on using this computer longer than a year. My computer is 3 weeks out of warranty.. purchased April 16, 2010. This morning when I attempted to boot up my computer the Lenovo screen came on and then went completely black with a blinking cursor in the top left corner. Lenovo refuses to fix my problem, except to pay 1/3 of the $500 dollars we've already paid to fix it. This process has been long and frustrating.
Summary: i bought this for my mom. it works well and its a huge plus that it comes with win 7 instead of win 7 starter. she uses it all of the time. the keyboard is good and the trackpad is easy to use. anybody looking to buy a computer for their parents should look to the U150 because the screen size is so much easier on older people than 10inch netbook screens, and lenovo quality is probably better than other brands.
Summary: I had a standard netbook with a 10" screen I received as a gift last fall, it was small and compact but at the time I was doing a lot of writing on the laptop and found the smaller screen causing me neck pain after long hours of use. I researched and ran across this Lenovo Laptop. While it was a bit larger that I would of liked, it was actually lighter, thinner and I am getting 6-7 hours of battery life which is double the netbook, which had an extended battery.
Summary: I wanted a computer a little bigger than a netbook with better graphic for watching video and the occasional photoshop or CAD project. I bought this in March direct from Lenovo with better specs than what is being offered here, but also for a little more money. The build quality is great, battery life very good (4+ hours), and the aesthetics are mostly spot on. The only thing I do not like is the shiny black bezel around the screen.
Excerpt: un buon pomeriggio a tutti gli utenti di ciao, ora vi voglio parlare del notebook che hanno regalato a mia sorella un paio di anni fa per il suo compleanno, si tratta del Lenovo IdeaPad U150. Inizialmente ero un po' scettico perché non avevo mai sentito parlare di questa marca ma utilizzandolo devo dire che è stata una piacevole sorpresa.
Excerpt: La marca ya la conocemos, cada vez más se están ampliando y van ganando mercado, pero desde que conozco la marca estoy muy satisfecha en general, aporta buenos materiales, completos y además con buenos resultados. Este es un netbook, es un ordenador pequeñito que tiene lo necesario para un trabajo movido, donde el desplazarse es necesario, aunque a modo de distracción o hobby es ideal, sin olvidarnos del tema estudios.
