When we reviewed the small-business focused Lenovo 3000 V100 almost a year ago, it was among the first of a group of laptops we came to describe as "bulky ultraportables"--laptops that sought to incorporate the hefty feature set of a thin-and-light in a case bordering on ultraportable in size. Since then, the field has become a bit more crowded, with not only the entertainment-oriented Dell XPS M1210 but also the Toshiba Satellite U205 offering a comparable set of features in a similar design. But the Lenovo 3000 V100's $999 starting price still makes it one of the least expensive models in its class. And the fact that Lenovo has updated the V100 line with the latest Core 2 Duo processors, larger hard drives, and the option for Windows Vista warranted a second look.

For all those that remember IBM’s think pads and other great notebooks they are now in the hands of Lenovo. This offering I should have seen in May still eight months late it’s here. I am told what I have not been sent is a totally new version. It is 30x22x3.5cm and weights close to 1.9kilos. The screen is 26x16.5cm giving the notional screen size of 12.1 inches. There is an 83key keyboard with all but the function and arrow keys being full size.

Highly mobile users who don’t want to sacrifice performance or comfort to travel light should consider the Lenovo 3000 V100. This 4.3-pound dual-core system provides nearly everything professionals on the move need for work and (a little play) at a reasonable price of $1,649. Thoughtful touches like an integrated webcam, fingerprint reader, and Lenovo Care, which offers quick links to everything from wireless network settings to data recovery, help this thin-and-light stand out.

70% Lenovo 3000 V100 Ultra Portable Notebook
Source: Trusted Reviews English
When Lenovo acquired IBMs PC and laptop business many feared for the reputation and quality of the famed IBM ThinkPad brand. However, they ought to have feared not as Lenovo sensibly kept the ThinkPad brand going, and judging by our reviews the quality has stayed too. The ThinkPad brand then retains the high-end while Lenovo reserves its own brand for its more affordable notebooks, much like this V100. As part of the 3000 range, the full title is the Lenovo 3000 V100, which is a little confusing. Firmly in the ultra-portable category, this notebook features a 12.1in widescreen display and weighs only 1.86Kg, yet has its optical drive built-in.At first glance the V100 suffers for looks and build quality compared to a genuine ThinkPad. However it does bring many ThinkPad features to a more affordable price point. I wouldn’t consider it though unless it’s paired with an extended battery as the standard one is far too weedy.

Lenovo's latest ultraportable, the 3000 V100, offers good performance, light weight, and plentiful multimedia features for a reasonable $1599 (as of 6/26/2006). Though I found much to like, its disappointing keyboard is a reminder that this is not a ThinkPad. The V100 weighs a fairly light 4.4 pounds. Equipped with Intel's 2-GHz Core Duo T2500 processor plus 1GB of main memory, it turned in strong performance results in our tests, with a WorldBench 5 score of 93. The battery lasted just over 4 hours, also a good showing.

Lenovo 3000 series – the trilogy
Source: Strike Mobile English
The Lenovo V100 is a nice ultraportable to give you the right quality and performance for the right price. And for this reason this is a good competition for every ultraportable on the market today. Nice computing power with a nice design and the optical drive are the pluses for this laptop. The touchpad, the mouse buttons and the built-in camera software are the minuses that can set back some of the potential buyers. As an overall, the money invested on the Lenovo V100 are well placed and you should have little second thoughts when buying it. Our marks for the Lenovo V100 are: 8 for design and 7.8 for the tech specs.

Lenovo 3000 V100 Review
Source: Hardware Central English
You've often heard that the successor to a successful person or company has big shoes to fill. If they're Big Blue's shoes, it's even harder. Lenovo has been careful not to jolt customers since acquiring IBM's PC business 14 months ago. The Chinese firm still offers five notebooks under the ThinkPad brand, although it's happily trimmed IBM's practice of confronting would-be buyers with a dozen configurations of each (256K and CD-ROM, anyone?). But while pitching the ThinkPads as corporate IT choices, Lenovo has targeted small businesses with three house-brand laptops dubbed the 3000 series. The lightest and swankiest, the 3000 V100, is a 4.4-pound slimline with a 12.1-inch, wide-aspect-ratio display and built-in optical drive -- differentiating it from the ultralight ThinkPad X60, which relegates its DVD burner to a snap-on, swappable drive-bay base.

The latest addition to Lenovo's line of non-ThinkPad laptops for small businesses, the Lenovo 3000 V100 walks the line between ultraportable and thin-and-light. With a starting weight of 4 pounds, the V100 combines a relatively small form factor and a 12.1-inch wide-screen display with features you'd usually find on larger laptops, such as a comfortable keyboard and a built-in optical drive. And while the V100 isn't the only "large ultraportable" on the market (the similar-sized Dell XPS M1210 and the Sony VAIO SZ offer a comparable set of features), its $1,099 starting price makes it one of the least expensive models in its class. Our test system included $500 worth of upgrades for a still reasonable $1,599. If you're looking for a laptop that's portable but still has all the features you'll need for work (and some play), the Lenovo 3000 V100 is a very good choice.

It's nearly two years since Lenovo started its acquisition of IBM's personal computing division, and for a long time there was no discernible difference in its range. Then came the first all-Lenovo desktop, the 3000 J105, which ditched the distinctive black and red colour scheme for more sober shades of grey and orange. Like the J105, the V100 lacks any familiar IBM branding, although there are a few important areas that have come through as part of the inheritance. An amazing keyboard and light weight aren't quite enough to earn Lenovo's debut notebook an award.

For over a decade, IBM ThinkPads have been the gold-standard for laptop reliability, performance, and durability. Though IBM often eschewed the multimedia bonuses that made notebooks from Apple and Sony popular, the ThinkPad was always first-in-class when it came to business. The next time you're on a plane, take a moment to see which laptops are being used in the first class cabin – the majority will be IBM ThinkPads. After Lenovo acquired IBM's consumer PC division in 2005, the company was careful to reassure ThinkPad-fans that their beloved laptop would continue to set the benchmark for business notebooks.

Lenovo V100 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Lenovo V100 is a decent portable notebook offering and nice addition to the 3000 series. I think the key for the V100 will be pricing, the 12.1" form factor is turning into a competitive field as is witnessed by the release of the XPS M1210 and the V100 on the very same day. If you want to have a small notebook that's simple to carry around and still offers very good performance and attractive features, the V100 should be on your list to consider. The excellent web camera image quality, good keyboard, good selection of ports and of course the advantage of having a built-in optical drive in a 12.1" form factor are key decision components.

Within a three-month time span, Lenovo has launched three notebooks under its own brand: the Lenovo 3000 C100, the N100, and now the newest, the V100, the lightest of the three. With a 12-inch widescreen and an extended 56-Wh six-cell battery, the 4.4-pound V100 is a borderline ultraportable; and at just $1,649 direct, it's one of the more affordable lightweights in this weight class. The full-size keyboard provides one of the best typing experiences money can buy. I just wish Lenovo could have also found room for a TrackPoint rather than offering the V100's hit-or-miss touchpad.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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


Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)


T2400: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer, owned the majority of the company. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

 

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


71.44%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
