The IdeaPad U300S is one of the most aesthetically designed laptops from Lenovo. It is a very good competitor for Apple’s Mac Book Air. It is comfortably portable and has a unique appeal that sets it apart from others in its class.
When it comes to design, the Lenovo IdeaPad U300S feels smooth and you will not be able to see any screws on it. It measures 14.99 m in thickness. Even though it is very slim, it appears to be very sturdy. It is built in such a way that it looks like a real book. It weighs only 1.34 kg. The laptop comes with a preloaded Windows 7 Home Premium Edition OS.
The display screen measures 13.3 inches. It has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. The screen has a glossy appeal and its clarity is hampered to some extent when you use the IdeaPad U300S outside. Viewing it from any angle, you won’t notice any color distortion. You can move the display to up 130 degrees toward the back to get the best viewing position.
The chiclet type of keyboard present on the IdeaPad U300S has got black colored keys laid on the grey colored body of the laptop. You won’t find numpad on the keyboard. The very first time you use the device, you will easily get the hang of typing on it.
At the front bezel above the screen, you can find a 1.3 MP camera which can be used for performing video chat. The speakers are located beneath the keyboard. The output of the speaker is clear and its loudness can be experienced in a small room.
The four-cell battery present on the Lenovo IdeaPad U300S can last few minutes over two hours when you use all the resources heavily. Conservative usage of the power will make the battery last for 4 to 5 hours.
