Lenovo IdeaPad U110 review: Lenovo IdeaPad U110

Lenovo includes an industry-standard one-year parts-and-labor warranty with the system, with affordable upgrades for up to three years of coverage. We do wish the consumer-focused IdeaPad line included some variation of the company's suite of support and configuration tools (called ThinkVantage on ThinkPads and Lenovo Care on the Lenovo 3000 line). However, the company's support Web site is above average, providing easy access to features such as an online knowledge base and driver downloads. Support is also accessible through a 24-7 toll-free phone line and an online chat tool.

    About The Author

    Tech expert Michelle Thatcher grew up surrounded by gadgets and sustained by Tex-Mex cuisine. Life in two major cities--first Chicago, then San Francisco--broadened her culinary horizons beyond meat and cheese, and she's since enjoyed nearly a decade of wining, dining, and cooking up and down the California coast. Though her gadget lust remains, the practicalities of her small kitchen dictate that single-function geegaws never stay around for long.
