The IdeaPad U150 is Lenovo’s first entry into the thin and light space to sport an Intel Consumer Ultra Low Voltage processor. The folks at Lenovo were kind enough to send me a demo unit to review.
While the base model has a Pentium Dual Core SU4100 CPU and 3GB of RAM, the model I received has a 1.3GHz Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPU and 4GB of RAM. It sells for $749, but if you keep an eye out, Lenovo often has coupons and sales that might bring the price down a bit.
So far I’m impressed with the overall design of this laptop. It has an attractive textured lid and palm rest area that manages to be eye-catching, but pretty much fingerprint-proof. The keyboard is nice and large, although the keys feel a little cheap. And the touchpad features two distinct buttons which are very easy to use.
