Lenovo Ideapad 300S Review

LAPTOP Magazine
13 January 2016
  • Summary: Given the aggressive price, I was pleasantly surprised by the Lenovo Ideapad 300S' light weight and beautiful red exterior. In testing the machine, I also liked the laptop's solid performance and responsive keyboard and touchpad. However, I was less impressed by its modest battery life.

  • Summary: There's a lot to like about the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s and after using the machine for a while we really wanted to absolutely love it. Unfortunately, our tech geek lust started to wane a little after we got under the hood with this machine in our benchmarks.

31 January 2012
  • Conclusion: All told, the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s is a strong entry in the fledgling ultrabook field on the basis of its hardware. To be sure, the hefty pricing—for the Core i7 model we tested, or even the ramped-down Core i5 version—will put it out of reach for most folks who don't need the kind of pure...
  • Pros: Thin and light, even by ultrabook standards, Strong Core i7 performance, Bump-resistant SSD, Long battery life, Aluminum chassis, Surprising audio fidelity
  • Cons: Too expensive, No memory-card slot, Port selection is only basic

Review: Lenovo IdeaPad U300s

Wired
16 November 2011
  • Excerpt: Maybe it’s a cliché that big things come in small packages, but with its IdeaPad U300s , Lenovo proves there’s truth in them there words. The latest entry into the increasingly crowded ultrabook market, Lenovo takes the high (end) road, offering a well-thought-out feature set while keeping costs —...
  • Pros: Solid construction, solid performance, solid feature set. Keyboard is as good as it gets on an ultrabook. OneKey rescue button to restore/rebuild the laptop is a neat idea — but do we really need a standalone, physical button on the side for this? It’s the only ultrabook available in beautiful or...
  • Cons: What’s up with the backlighting? Minimal port selection, with USB ports on opposite sides of the machine. Weak clickpad.
