I like Lenovo

Date:March 26, 2011
"So far I really like Lenovo product. I have 3 Lenovo in my house today. I like Lenovo's overall design and style. I cannot really find anything like that in America made computer. Lenovo really put a nice touch on the style. I was originally thining of the U260 which is even more stylish and really little touch here and there that makes the overall experience very positive. However, because of the price I settle on the second choice U160. I currently own U160, S10 and a X60S."

it is worthy

Date:February 18, 2011
Pros: Battery, Memory, Bluetooth, Keyboard/peripherals, Screen size, Display resolution, Display performance
"Background: I am an engineering graduate student.
I was using x61s which I am comparing U160 to.
pros:
1. I love the 4GB memory.
2. The covering looks cool
3. I love the Dolby audio system which is much better than the audio system of x61s
4. I love the Touchpad which I consider more convenient and more functional than the trackpoint.
5. I feel comfortable using the keyboard which looks stylish.
6. I like the wide screen.
7. The webcam works well.
8. the adapter is smaller than that of x61s.
9. I like the long-hour battery.
10. Basically, I think U160 meets most of my daily needs. U160 is good for traveling, too.
cons:
1. I was using X61s (the processor is 1.6GHz), so I don't satisfy the processor of U160 (1.33GHz). However, if you don't do complex programming, U160 should be fine.
2. It was hard to push the thin thing to show the media card slot. Besides, the thin thing was a bit dirty when I first saw it.
3. I touched the covering, then I saw some clear fingerprints. I was worrying about how to remove them...
4. U160 came with too much software which I didn't need, such as smile desktop and ooVoo.
5. the Touchpad was too sensitive. It took me a while to adjust to it.
6. I was trying to install Ubuntu, but I failed three times.
7. I was Skyping with my family using the microphone, but they couldn't hear me well.
