Lenovo's way, but the budget-minded 3000 N200 just may provide the rigidity and oomph you need for just over a grand. Making sure your hard-earned dollars don't go to waste is TrustedReviews, who has taken the time to break down this newfangled machine and even post benchmarks for your analyzing pleasure. Initial impressions seemed to harp on the relatively modest innards, a keyboard that was deemed just "sufficient," and the trackpad buttons that were actually compared to "putting your fingers in jelly." Nevertheless, the N200's display was dubbed the best they'd seen on a lappie of this caliber, and it was said to be a satisfactory choice for those needing a basic business-oriented machine on the (somewhat) cheap. For those still hangin' in there, be sure to visit the final page of the writeup for the benchmarking results.
