I still remember when I had my first notebook. It was really bulky and rather heavy. Had it for few years and then got myself a netbook. It which was handy enough and small but it’s taking ages to load and not the best device in the performance department.
It took somebody quite a while to realize that the CD-rom in a notebook is not really necessary especially when USB flash drives are much more popular for file storage. So they decided to take away the CD-rom, reducing it size and weight and giving it some extra juice to last longer with an extended battery life without compromising performance. Hence came along the Ultrabooks.
I’m currently using the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s ultrabook and I totally love it. Lenovo has been in the forefront of mobile computing and the IdeaPad U300s is definitely one of the best Ultrabooks in the market.
I love the fact that that the U300s is lightweight and easy to carry along wherever I go. Although I admit that a tablet PC is always easier to bring along but it still lack a physical keyboard and most importantly, the additional storage space that I need. I work a lot on Adobe Photoshop and I had it installed in my U300s. I can now work remotely without having to carry the excess weight but still have the power to do some extensive photo editing.
My favourite moment is when I spent my days lazing on my bed at home catching up on my next season of Fringe. A full charge can last me for hours before I have to plug it in. So it’s good enough for me to catch a number of episodes before I doze off.
Well, as much as I love the U300s, I gotta admit that it can be a little pricy (starting from RM3,299). Many of my friends claim that they can get a Macbook Air for slightly more but then again, it’s always a matter of choice. Some love apples and some love oranges. There’s always an option for everyone but as for me, I’m pretty happy with a Lenovo for now.
