Lenovo 3000 V200 laptop: four pounds of Santa Rosa for $1199

Lenovo_3000_v200Sometimes we get so focused on UMPCs and ultra-portables, we inadvertently forget about the ‘standard’ portable devices. Lenovo is here to remind us now that they’ll be offering an Intel Santa Rosa platform in their new four-pound V200 laptop at a reasonable price. $1,199 nets you a notebook with:

  • Intel Core 2 Duo T7100 (1.8 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz front side bus)
  • 12.1-inch WXGA screen with integrated web-cam
  • Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 160 GB, 5,200 RPM drive
  • Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, 802.11a/b/g
  • 8x DVD Recordable optical drive
  • 3-cell battery
  • Integrated fingerprint reader

Some desirable and well-priced upgrades are included in a $300 premium package: a 2.0 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache CPU upgrade, 2 GB of RAM, 6-cell battery and OS upgrade from Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate. As a portability point-of-comparison, the V200 is roughly the same price as a Dell XPS M1210, weighs 10% less and is about the same size: barely wider and thicker with an extra inch on the depth.
