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.

Lenovo IdeaPad U260 12.5-inch Laptop Review

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!

  • Cons: – Battery life (only about 3 hours)
