Reviews for the Lenovo U160

Lenovo U160 reviewed
Source: Gadgetmix English
The Lenovo U160 is the latest thin and light netbook, which is a bit larger than a netbook but packs more power. For comparison purpose, here are the values of the Asus 1210T Eee PC – an AMD Neo MV-40 powered netbook. Clearly, the Lenovo U160 has better processor. Interestingly, the ATi GMA 3200 HD of Asus 1201T yields better performance than the new Intel HD graphics.

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.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

640UM: The Core i7-640UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 2.26 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
