We mainly know Lenovo for their line of ThinkPad notebooks, but consumers really do not like those laptops because of their plain styling. Luckily for consumers Lenovo has released a new line of notebooks called their IdeaPad series. We first got a look at Lenovo's Ideapad series at CES earlier this year. Out of the 3 new notebooks we were most interested in the very tiny U110. This small laptop has a lot of very innovative features like a LED backlit screen and facial recognition. At only 2.92lbs it is a perfect notebook for traveling and mobile users. Will all these features make the U110 worth its price tag? Read on to find out.

The IdeaPad was sent to us directly from Lenovo like we ordered it right from their website. Lenovo uses FedEx and they used a double box for extra protection. Opening the box up we find the IdeaPad retail box inside, nicely protected by bubble-wrap.
The U110's retail box is pretty plain, much like all Lenovo products. Although there is an embossed design on the black part of the box. The side of the box has all of the specs of our system along with serial numbers.
Opening up the box everything inside is nicely protected. There is a box of accessories that included 2 batteries, AC adapter, USB DVD-ROM drive, software CD's, and a cleaning cloth. Also included with the system is a notebook sleeve that you can use to transport the system.
