Lenovo IdeaPad U550 Review

8 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Power when you need it, efficiency when you don’t. So goes the premise behind Lenovo’s new IdeaPad U550, a mid-size notebook with a CULV processor and switchable ATI graphics that could serve as both a desktop replacement, and a makeshift travel machine. Throw that together with a $799 price tag (as equipped) and the U550 makes an appealing pitch to computer buyers looking to make one purchase for all their computing needs. Can it follow through?
  • Pros: Respectable battery life on Intel graphics, Reasonably portable form factor, weight, Easy-to-switch graphics, Modest gaming performance, Solid touchpad and keyboard
  • Cons: Loaded to the gills with bloatware, Below-par webcam quality, Low-resolution screen, Cheap-feeling plastic lid, Weak speakers
