Who would have thought that a company like Lenovo would be able to move beyond its rather rigid setup, especially after acquiring IBM’s computer manufacturing business and along with it, the line of business-class ThinkPads, and churn out machines which are easy on the eye – capable of turning heads, even? Yes sir, we are talking about a trio of new luxury laptops known as the IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook, and the U300 and U400 laptops. We will concentrate on the U300s as that is the main attraction out of the three.
These devices were specially designed for fashion-minded consumers who not only want performance, but to get their work done in style – or at least be seen working with something that is extremely easy on the eyes. The super slim U300s Ultrabook is powered by Intel’s second generation Core i7 processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, taking a mere 10 seconds to booth up while Enhanced Experience 2.0 RapidDrive SSD technology ensures you are able to have a quick response time regardless of the program you run.
Other specifications include a 13.3″ ultra-slim 16:9 widescreen HD display, 4GB DDR3 memory and up to 256GB of SSD storage, all crammed into a chassis that is just 14.9mm thin. Taking its cue from Apple’s design book, the U300s is hewn from a single-piece aluminum shell, resulting in a sleek and lightweight product that tips the scales at under 3 pounds.
You can choose from Graphite Grey or limited-edition Clementine Orange colors, with prices starting from $1,199.99 upwards.
