Lenovo recommends Windows. 



It's about balance. With things like 3D technology, Dolby® and SRS® sound and high-def graphics, you could go completely wild with our IdeaPad laptops. But we're keeping an eye on the responsible things, too — OneKey® data security and VeriFace® password login. After all, life is about balance, right?


IdeaPad's stylish design makes these laptops ones to see and be seen with.

No two people are the same. We kept that in mind when we designed the first

IdeaPad laptops. Fact is, we wanted to give you options for expressing

yourself. You may look at a tribal tattoo pattern and see yourself. Or maybe

bold colors or a sleek metallic finish is more your speed. Choose

carefully — you will get noticed.


Need a fast laptop? You got it — IdeaPad systems get their power from the latest processors. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology provides raw power and speed when you need it, and more efficient performance when it suits you. Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience 2.0, now with RapidDrive technology, uses SSD/HDD storage and advanced tuning so that select laptops can boot in as little as 10 seconds. Serious technology so you can have fun.

As netbooks continue to evolve, they’re adopting new features that make them more than ordinary PC companions. The Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t, the world’s first convertible netbook with a capacitive multitouch screen, is a prime example of this evolution.


The U260 combines Lenovo's traditional strengths with a new-found sense of style.
