Conclusion: Above the keyboard, you have a the power button as well as bunch of LEDs that light up for things like battery, drive activity etc. On the left side, Lenovo places a USB port, 3.5mm headset combo jack and the WiFi switch while the right has the power input, VGA and HDMI outputs, a Gigabit Ethernet jack and an additional USB port. Sadly, there is no SD card reader slot- the only thing I found missing from the IdeaPad U260.
Conclusion: We don't break down our star ratings into categories, but if we did, the IdeaPad U260 would get a perfect 5 for design and quality and a 3 for horsepower and features. We love a beautiful and light machine as much as the next designer-clad geek, but we do weight performance and features above good looks and a fine build. So we rate the notebook as the best Windows alternative to the MacBook Air we've seen so far, but it's a little lacking on the ultramobile front.
Pros: Super light and thin, beautiful design, excellent quality, lovely display., Simply gorgeous notebook with exacting attention to detail and ergonomics. Top notch build and quality. Super thin and light. Good LED backlit matte display (goodbye glare). Great keyboard and trackpad. Grippy exterior finish is both attractive and practical.
Cons: Battery life just OK, could use more ports and slots., Battery isn't user replaceable, only 2 USB ports and no card reader slot. Battery life is low for an ultraportable, fan comes on more than necessary. Must remove many torx screws to access hard drive and battery.
