Though has adopted newest generation processor, not mean V200 costlier. The price is around US$1299, competitive enough for 12,1 inches class notebook which has applied Santa Rosa processor. This thing is in line with Lenovo strategy which positioning their 3000 series in middle segment, or below the ThinkPad series which targeted to upper segment.
Like other 12,1 inches class notebook, V200 addressed for professional that is mobile and requires light notebook. This thing maybe not seen from its physical form which seen thick and rigid, but in weighing machine, V200 weight is around 1,98 kg. Of course not lighter than Sony Vaio TZ or Asus W5F, but at least still below the psychological number of 2 kg.
Keyboard applied by V200 can be said the tradition from IBM because seen precisely; and that is a fineness. We are the big fan of IBM keyboard because it very comforts to use. Its high form of course makes we must press deep enough to activate it, but because so soft, typing process become very balmy and doesn’t make us tire. The only thing which we regret is the location of fingerprint scanner near touchpad, so that a few hampering hand which leaned when typing.
Shortcut button provided by Lenovo is facilitating enough to activate the facility that offered by this notebook. In button line at up side of keyboard, we can find the button to setting the volume and activates the MediaNow application. This application functions is to turn on the multimedia application. Besides, there are Lenovo Care button which will activate the utility to check notebook health, including look for the reason if problem happened.
Lenovo 3000 V200 maybe not a stylist notebook which making everyone pierce at you when you use the notebook, but it can be said reliable for all computing activity which you do. The combination of Intel T7300 processor and 1GB memory has been very satisfactory to be used in various computing activities, except for game application. The price of $1299 - including Windows Vista Home Business and fingerprint scanner – is also felt match. So this notebook is well-matched for serious user which don’t need stylish product.Lenovo 3000 V200 ReviewPrice Range: $1499Specs:- Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 (2,2 GHz, 4MB cache, FSB 800Mhz)- RAM: 2GB, DDR2- Chipset: Intel GM965- Graphic Card: nVidia GeForce 8400M G- Harddisk: 160 GB- Optical Drive: DVD±R DL- Screen: 12,1 inches, 1280x800 pixel- Soundcard: Realtek ALC660, HD-Audio- Battery: 7800/2400 mAh- Dimension: 31 x 27,3 x 3,9 cm- Weight: 2,02 kg- Feature: WiFi, Bluetooth, card reader, USB (3 port), FireWire, 1,3MP webcam, Express Card, HDMI, Fingerprint ScannerCheck This Out:HP Pavilion dv9000 Review: Grand NotebookBenQ Joybook S41 Reviews: Another Santa Rosa NotebookAsus G1S Review: Notebook for Gamer
