Lenovo IdeaPad U260 Hands-On and Unboxing

Take a look with me at this lovely ultraportable Lenovo laptop by the name of IdeaPad U260. This particular model comes in Clementine Orange and Mocha Brown, the one you're about to see being the fabulous former. This notebook comes in your choice of Intel’s 1.33GHz Core i3-380UM or 1.33GHz to 1.86GHz Core i5-470UM processors, a Core i7 option up to 4GB of DDR3 memory and a standard 320GB 5,400rpm hard-drive (or 128GB SSD).

The case is made from magnesium-aluminum alloy with a leather-patterened palm rest and glass touchpad. The display is 12.5" high definition 1366 x 768 with Intel HD graphics, and the whole notebook weighs 3.04 pounds. There are two 1w speakers (for stereo sound) Wifi b/g/n, gigabit ethernet, Bluetooth, two USB 2.0 ports, audio in/out, VGA, and HDMI. The touchpad is multi-finger, the keyboard is a "breathable" chicklet style, and there's an optional external USB DVD drive available (we won't really get into that since we don't have it here.)

The box this notebook comes in is as nice as we've come to expect from high-grade computer producing companies like Lenovo. Gloss printing, excellent illustrations, graphic design at A levels, minimalism up the wazoo. The box is nice enough that you're going to want to keep it, the paperwork kept to a minimum in more ways than one so that you might keep it all in one place for safe storage without a hassle. Unboxing this brightly colored notebooks is an overall pleasant experience. The laptop itself is very sleek, made with magnificently nicely chosen materials for comfort and aesthetics, and the screen, of course, is very bright. More on this in the review.
