I am assuming these ultrabooks won't be very suitable for gaming. I'm looking to pick up a laptop to go with my desktop and take my games on the go with me.

The U400 contains a HD6470M graphics card, so it may handle gaming pretty good. and the U400 will go for $849.

it just doesn't seem like there is any ventilation on these computers, wouldn't they overheat easily?

Actually the U400 contains a HD6470M graphics card, not a 5470M. The U300s also has a glass trackpad and a machined aluminum body, that has been given a sandblasting and an anodization that Lenovo pledges will make it more scratch resistant than the competition. All 3 sport USB 3 and HDMI out. The U300s will start at $1,195, the U300 will start at $799 and the U400 will go for $849. I verified all this with my Lenovo rep as there is a typo in the press release, and they ship in October, not November.

Do you know the price of the U300s?

Also, I'm confused, why is the U300 more expensive than the U400?

There's no mention of how much the U300s will run, though I assume it will be more expensive than the U300. As to the U400, unless that's a typo by Lenovo, I'm guessing a baseline model will sport weaker specs than a basline U300, hence the lower price tag even though it has a larger display.

For a day full of Ultrabook releases they really aren't telling us much. -_- 

 

Thanks for the clarification though.
