TechSpot: Lenovo IdeaPad U260 12.5" Laptop Review

Mobile computing is one of the most dynamic segments of consumer electronics in recent history. From the netbook craze from a few years ago, to smartphones and of course, the tablet computer. And while all of these extensions of mobile computing are exciting, the trusty laptop is still the most well-rounded option. Classified as a Lifestyle product, Lenovo's IdeaPad U260 aims to be your "thin, light, stylish travel companion".

The IdeaPad U260 comes equipped with Intel's ULV Core i5-470UM operating at 1.33 GHz with 3MB of L2 cache, Intel HD Graphics, 4GB of PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM, a Hitachi 320GB 5400 RPM hard drive, integrated Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 1000, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, a 4-cell Li-Polymer battery and a 12.5" HD AntiGlare 1366 x 768 display.

Right away we can see that the U260 is a very sleek and sexy system, complete with a leather wrist rest and chiclet-style keys. Total system weight is 3.04 pounds, thanks in large part to the one-piece magnesium-aluminum cover. Thickness is measured at only 18mm.

To small and two slow for my taste. After working on 24" and 23" screens all day attempting to view a 12.5' inch screen is just too hard on these 64 year old diabetic eyes. Also 1.3 GHz is just a bit slow.

Not a bad little machine. If it wasn't for the screen resolution and the weak Intel HD graphics, it would be pretty sweet. It'll be interesting to see how well it performs with a Sandybridge.
