When we set out to round up a handful of laptops that cost less than $1,000, we knew we had to include Lenovo. The small-business-focused Lenovo 3000 line has long been one of the best deals going if you want to buy a laptop built on the latest Intel processors and platforms. Our 14.1-inch Lenovo 3000 N200 review unit, which cost just $948, lived up to our expectations when it passed most of the other $1,000 systems on our benchmarks. Its primary competition, performance-wise, came from a Sony VAIO CR120 built on many of the same components, which kept pace with the Lenovo on all but one of our tests. But the slickly designed Sony incorporates a number of media-friendly features destined to appeal to entertainment-minded home users.

Lenovo's 3000 N200 notebook doesn't look all that different from the previous N100 model. It has received a number of updates to its core but it still strives to be a solid all around budget notebook system. It is now powered by the newer Intel Core 2 Duo T5250 dual core mobile processors that give it a good amount of performance without using too much power. This matched with a full gigabyte of memory lets it run smoothly with its Windows XP Professional operating system. Storage is pretty much what one can expect from a low cost notebook. The 80GB hard drive is usable but not as large as more expensive notebooks. It should do fine if you don't need too much storage space for digital media files. The dual layer DVD burner allows it to playback or record CD and DVD media. A 4-in-1 media card reader also is there for use with flash media cards.

Lenovo’s 3000 Family notebooks encompass the Widescreen Ultraportable sector with the V Series, and the larger, entertainment-minded notebooks with the N Series. The N series is marketed with a bevy of features to allow both ease of entertainment and general usage for small business users. But how different is this than the multitude of fully-featured business models? Does Lenovo bring a competitor to this bursting market, or just a bystander? We’ll find out. Today, we check out the N200 paired with the 15.4” LCD displaying a native resolution of 1680 x 1050. The N200 also ships with a lighter 14.1” form factor, although we felt that most consumers looking for a business model with entertainment capabilities would opt for the larger monitor. The N200 is dressed in silver that contains subtle mineral reflections. The Lenovo insignia is in glossy silver on top of the monitor, facing away from you.

The six-cell battery powered the unit for just 2.5 hours in our tests before giving out, almost 50 minutes shorter than average for this class of notebook.If you stick close to the office, you might be happy with this laptop, especially if you can catch a good configuration on sale. Our unit, which came with Corel WordPerfect Office 12, cost $1499 (as of 9/12/07). Lenovo recently reduced the price on a lower-powered configuration, with a 1.8-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 chip and 1GB of RAM, to a base of $899.

The good: Inexpensive; strong productivity and multitasking performance; great battery life; comfortable keyboard; robust system management and help utility. The bad: Somewhat thick; small touch pad; lousy speakers; few dedicated multimedia controls; poor gaming performance. The bottom line: The business-friendly Lenovo 3000 N200 offers strong performance, great battery life, and best of all, a competitive price.

Lenovo N200 Review
Source: English
The N200 is a very competitive laptop in the upper middle price range. If you configure a Dell or Toshiba laptop with similar specs you will spend as much as $200 more than the N200 price ... and they still lack the Santa Rosa platform. The N200 also had nice touches like Vista ultimate and a single 2gb stick of DDR2 (quite expensive compared to two 1gb sticks) included at no additional cost. The only drawback to the N200 is its very basic look and feel compared to much more stylish computers on the market. That said, the Lenovo N200 is something to consider if you are one of the shoppers who are more interested in features and cost than looks.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300 is part of the lower performance segment and the competitor card of the ATI X1300. Technically it is simply lower clocked GeForce Go 7300.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T7100: Entry level to mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
