Details, Design of the Lenovo IdeaPad U110

Lenovo IdeaPad U110 While poking through Lenovo’s Flickr group, I came across a very interesting set, one containing high-resolution pictures of the Lenovo IdeaPad U110 (which we’ve mirrored here).

This helped clarify some things, as well as gave me an appreciation for what went into the design (similar to the X300 information in the previous story).

Details gleaned from the pictures:

– Battery – maybe only one size – fits flush with the back, and the LCD display rotates over the back of the battery
– Memory or PCI-Express compartment on bottom. If memory, maybe only one DIMM slot (but some ThinkPads have one memory slot on the bottom and one under the keyboard on top)
– No fingerprint sensor, there is a cable lock slot
– Keys look quiet different from other lines
– No extra/wasted keys. Function is used extensively to reduce the number of keys needed (and therefore the size).
– Two buttons with large touchpad (multi-finger gestures?)
– Integrated Web Camera
– 3x USB 2.0 and 1x IEEE 1394 /Firewire
– Very glossy black finish combined with glossy/semi-gloss red finish. Intricate designs carry over to the bottom of the laptop (yes, they have fancy designs on the bottom).
– No internal modem
