Over on NotebookReview.com, a “First Thoughts Review” of the 11.1-inch Lenovo IdeaPad U110 has been posted by JerryJ. At this point, the thing I’m most interested in, besides the would-be Lenovo ThinkPad X200, is how it stacks up against Sony’s ultralight 11.1-inch Intel-powered notebooks, the Sony TZ series (namely the TZ270N/B, etc.)
They’ve posted a few videos, and like other sites, have commented on how nice it looks, how glossy everything is, and how well-built it is:
The aluminum etch display cover and magnesium aluminum chassis provide both strength and light weight. You can press as hard as you want anywhere on the body of the notebook and it simply will not flex. Like the ThinkPad line, the IdeaPad U110 is designed for (accidental) abuse and drops, and we’re guessing the U110 might be the most rugged laptop in the IdeaPad lineup.
Gizmodo has also published their review, with the only drawback being the battery life and the price.
