Reviews for the Lenovo Ideapad U260-ITH

70% Lenovo IdeaPad U260 Review
Source: T Break English
Overall, the Lenovo IdeaPad U260 is a very well designed laptop that not only looks beautiful but also feels solid in its construction. It’s not the fastest performer, but it isn’t intended to be. It’s great for everyday stuff like creating documents, surfing the web and emails but not one you’d use for playing video games or render 3D models. Priced at AED 2,999 it is quite competitive for a notebook with a premium design.

80% A Closer Look at the Lenovo IdeaPad U260

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).
