Understated elegance married with decent performance, but the dim display sends it dropping down the rankings Unlike the rest of the Ultrabook crowd, there’s no way you could possibly accuse the IdeaPad U300s of being a MacBook Air clone.From the...

Given the same configurations, it’s no surprise that the IdeaPad U300s performs in the same league as the Portege Z830. So why pay an extra $200 for the exact same experience as the Toshiba Portege Z830?It all comes down to aesthetic appeal and...

At Rs.67,990, it is a little bit cheaper than a similarly spec’d MacBook Air, but overall, it’s still pretty steep. If Lenovo dropped the price to about 45-50K, then it would make a very good buy. Sure it may not have a LAN jack, but...
