Lenovo IdeaPad U260: the in and out
The IdeaPad U260 had made an appearance at this year’s CES and it did gather some fanfare, especially with its bright orange color theme.
The new notebook from the house of Lenovo is slim and compact and has a nice rubberized texture. Nice chiclet-type keys, a glass touchpad supporting multi-touch gestures and an unconventional palm rest are what reside on the insides while the overall look on the exteriors is typical Lenovo. Under the hood, the powerhouse consists of a 1.33GHz Intel Core i5 470UM coupled with 4GB of RAM and a 320GB, 5400rpm hard disk for storage. A 12.5-inch, 1366x768 pixel display does duty on the laptop which comes pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium. Other standard features include a VGA webcam, miniPCIe, VGA, Ethernet, HDMI, USB ports and a dual headphone-and-microphone jack.
Reportedly, battery-life isn’t as good and at a price of $899 and upwards, the laptop is more about style and is less value for money.
