Reviews for the Lenovo IdeaPad U160-08945LU

60% Lenovo IdeaPad U160 11.6-inch Ultraportable Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Lenovo's IdeaPad U160 ultraportable keeps a small and lightweight form factor similar to a netbook but offers some outstanding performance. This is thanks to the Core i5-470UM dual core processor that uses very little power but provides some solid performance. The downside to this is the laptop suffers from some below average battery life for this class of computer and tends to run much warmer than similar 11-inch laptops.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

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

470UM:

The Core i5-430UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 1.83 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. AES, VT-d and Trusted Execution are deactivated for the 430UM. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.

1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
