Source: Trusted Reviews English
With its unique 'folio' design and soft-touch finish, Lenovo's thin and light IdeaPad U260 is one of the most attractive (12.5in) laptops going. However, despite nice ergonomics and a good matt screen, its last-generation CPU and GPU hold it back, connectivity is a bit disappointing and battery life is nothing special. However, considering you get a 128GB SSD for its sub-£800 asking price, if you won't be subjecting it to heavy workloads it's still a decent buy.

If you’re looking for a notebook that is a desktop replacement, we wouldn’t recommend the U260. The lack of an optical drive and more processing power is something you’ll sorely miss after a while. If travelling is something you do often and are on a limited budget, you might find the the U260 to be a good proposition.

Lenovo IdeaPad U260 Core i3 12.5-in Notebook Review

Given the attention to detail Lenovo lavished on this laptop, it’s unfortunate that the battery life results are so poor. This is the only flaw with the laptop, but it’s one that can’t be ignored given that it is an ultraportable. If not for this issue, the U260 would have easily qualified for an editor’s choice award. This is a conclusion I also came to when reviewing the T410s, which suffered from the same drawbacks as the U260. If Lenovo can figure out how to squeeze larger batteries into these slim and light laptops, it will have some class-leading products on its hands. For now, however, the U260 is a bit of a fashion statement. It’s beautiful, exquisitely constructed, and great to use – but lacking the expected endurance.

Lenovo's IdeaPad U260 offers a very compact and stylish system. It offers a very good screen with anti-glare coating and excellent keyboard and trackpad. All of these features are tempered though by the below average battery life from the smaller battery to keep the weight and size down. It also has very limited external peripheral connectivity.

Everyone else, however, should still take a look at the U260. Yes, it's a bit pricey considering the hardware, but actually using the laptop should help you understand why. The design and construction of the U260 has far more in common with luxury laptops like the Sony Vaio Z and MacBook Pro than budget ultraportables like the Dell M101z or Toshiba T235D.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

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

380UM: The Core i3-380UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops without Turbo Boost and AES functions (compared to the i5 and i7 UM CPUs).
