Lenovo IdeaPad U260 12.5" Laptop Review

TechSpot
8 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The 12.5" widescreen display is a nice change from the glossy screens that have crowded the market. The resolution used is more than acceptable and color reproduction was where it should be. Horizontal viewing angles were good as well, but the vertical angles left a bit to be desired. Lenovo has traditionally posted high marks with their keyboards and the IdeaPad U260 is no different.

Lenovo IdeaPad U260 – Easy to Carry, Easy on the Wallet

Tech2
5 October 2011
  • Summary: There is no denying the fact that the Lenovo IdeaPad U260 isn’t really a performer. A price tag of Rs. 44,990 means that you are either going to get respectable performance or a very compact notebook. In this case, the Lenovo IdeaPad U260 offers a compact size and a stylish design for an affordable price. If you’re looking for a notebook that is a desktop replacement, we wouldn’t recommend the U260.

Lenovo IdeaPad U260

CNET
25 June 2011
  • Summary: The Lenovo IdeaPad U260 is a sleekly designed, beautifully constructed 12-inch ultraportable; it's just a shame its world-class looks are undermined by a less-than-stellar battery.
  • Pros: Eye-catching, premium design; excellent keyboard and touch pad; lightweight chassis; extremely comfortable ergonomics.
  • Cons: Underperforming CPU; sub-3-hour battery life disappoints, considering the power-saving processor.

Lenovo U260 IdeaPad Notebook Review

SlashGear
23 June 2011
  • Conclusion: If you're a Windows sort of person, and want a tiny computer to bring with you on a trip - this is the one. This is exactly what you're going to want. If you plan on being in the field without portable power or a wall plug for hours on end, maybe consider something else. This computer takes into account the fact that Apple is attempting to rock the ultraportable market with their MacBook Air and slams directly into it with a completely reasonably sized (small, but not...

  • Excerpt: Lenovo’s laptops usually has that design signature that you’ll easily spot a mile away. The IdeaPad U260 does not seem to inherit the usual genetic make-up and thus gives it a much refreshing look. Check out our full review of the Lenovo IdeaPad U260 after the jump.

Lenovo IdeaPad U260 12.5-inch Laptop Review

ThinkComputers
22 March 2011
  • Summary: Final Thoughts Ultraportable and slim-type laptops are my favorite as I don’t need my laptop to be a desktop replacement.  So something that is small and light really does appeal to me.  Design-wise Lenovo really blew this thing out of the water!  This has to the best designed laptop I’ve ever seen from Lenovo and the best designed PC laptop available right now.  The only thing that can compare is a Macbook Air.
  • Pros: – Elegant design, – Thin and light, – Core i5 processor and 4GB memory, – Glass touchpad and leather palm rest
  • Cons: – Battery life (only about 3 hours)

Lenovo IdeaPad U260 Core i3 12.5-in Notebook Review

PC Perspective
3 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Luxury. Premium. Exclusive. These are words rarely associated with laptops, particularly PC laptops. While Apple happily reaps in profits from the MacBook Pro, most other laptop manufacturers have a difficult time selling high-end laptops. The U260 is Lenovo’s attempt at a stylish flagship that will stick in the minds of buyers.

Review Lenovo IdeaPad U260 Subnotebook

Notebookcheck
22 February 2011
  • Summary: Elegant and thin. Inspired by the shape of an elegantly slim book, Lenovo presents the IdeaPad U260 subnotebook with an exceptional 12.5 inch display, Intel Core i5 Arrandale CPU, and integrated graphics unit. The 4 cell battery with a meager 39 Watt hours does appear to be a mobility bottleneck though.
  • Pros: Thin case, High quality materials and manufacturing, Pleasant, stable keyboard, Touchpad with glass surface, Matte 12.5 inch display with daylight sensor, Good office performance (i5-470UM, GMA HD), The robust case, the elegant design, the selected materials, and the matte display in a 12.5 inch format.
  • Cons: Meager included accessories, Mediocre display values, Increased temperatures under load (air circulation), Lacking stereo speakers, Average run times, A card reader, longer battery run times, better speakers, as well as a brighter display.

  • Pros: Attractive design, Thin, light, and sturdy
  • Cons: Poor battery life, Battery is not user-replaceable
