Summary: As someone who has been working in retail for several years, I've been around a lot of computers. A lot. Thousands. I still have a large one that operates just fine. I purchased it in 2003 and I decided that I would upgrade to something a little more modern. I didn't care much for power as I wanted a computer that I could carry with me easily. My older laptop is a behemoth weighing in at 7 pounds.
Still the most beautiful laptop in the world, best laptop for the ladies
5 January 2012
Summary: I first saw this laptop at Fry's and couldn't believe that something like this could be made by lenovo. It's kind of soft to the touch but at the same time surface doesn't get dirty. Exterior design of this thing is amazing, no apple or any other laptop I've seen are even close. I bought this for my wife and it's worked just fine for her for a year now.
Summary: I have been using the Lenovo U260 for about 2 months. Its a great ultra portable laptop. I bought the one using the Intel I3 processor, its pretty snappy. The computer is really lightweight and portable, about 1.3 LBS. I have the orange model, it looks good, I get compliments all the time at the office. The major issue with the laptop is the battery life. I only get about 2.5 hours with normal use. Streaming video?
Summary: Pros This notebook is fantastic for typing and writing. It also looks very good. The design is really nice and sleek. Plus it is a very light notebook. Cons If you are planning to use this for streaming videos or music or for simply browsing on WiFi, I suggest you look somewhere else. The performance and downloads speeds are not good. (But, to be fair, I have to say that browsing with an Ethernet cable plugged in is a different story, much better.
Summary: My situation may be a little different. The last PC I purchased was a Dell back in '03. Since then I have used nothing but Macs at home and at work. I bought this nice little notebook today. The Lenovo looked perfect. The perfect screen size for me, perfect weight, the keyboard was fantastic and really, it's just a well manufactured PC laptop. i was very happy with my purchase. So I charged the puppy up and started my computing.
Summary: This is my first PC in almost a decade, so the fact that I even purchased it over a Mac in the first place speaks volumes about this little computer. I've owned it for a little over a month now, so I think it would be fair to say I can assess its tru value at this point. I was impressed by the specs, looks, and size, and for the price (including free xbox with amazon student deal) it really can't be beat in the ultraportable market.
Summary: My netbook screen was too small so i wanted something bigger but not heavier. The Lenovo U260 fit the bill and the very speedy i5 chip sold me. Had it two months now and am very happy with it. The battery life is limited for a small laptop (3 hours) but that is good enough for me. The size is perfect - full, easy to use keyboard, very thin and light. The feel of the computer is very solid, and I love the soft wristpad covering. I wish they offered a solid state drive.
Summary: Pro: Love the design, and the screen is amazing. Very light. Con: Only two USB, intergrated battery - hope it will not die on me soon, no SD card slot, a bit slow in time even with a i5 processor
Summary: It catched my attention first time I saw it at BH Photo. Just a simply beautiful laptop.Best design since MBA. (FYI, I owned a MBP; I thought I would never consider anything else beside MBP or MBA. However, this design really, really impressed me. It makes me to change my mind.) However, after reading some of the reviews, this beauty needs to improve in order to beat MBA or MBP: - Battery Life: 3 hrs battery is a seriously failure.
