Don't fight it folks, Intel's Ultrabook revolution has already begun and is getting a boost today from Lenovo, which just unveiled three Ultrabook models. These include the IdeaPad U300s, U300, and U400. All three are luxury laptops that attempt to fuse style with performance in a new breed of notebook Intel envisions taking over the mobile computing scene.
"People will be wowed with the new U Series systems from Lenovo that combine incredible performance in beautiful and stylish designs," said Mooly Eden , vice president and general manager of Intel’s PC Client Group. "Powered by our 2nd Gen Core processors, this system will deliver great capabilities with a wonderful user experience and long battery life that people increasingly want. We’re particularly excited by Lenovo’s innovation and as one of the leading time to market partners in the new Ultrabook category with the U300s device that combines a no-compromise, must-have mobile experience with performance, security, responsiveness and style."
The U300s Eden talks about is a 13.3-inch notebook featuring up to an Intel Core i7 processor, a bootup time in as little as 10 seconds with Enhanced Experience 2.0 RapidDrive SSD technology, 4GB DDR3 memory, up to a 256GB SSD, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, 1.3MP webcam, and a slim profile made from a single piece of aluminum that measures 0.6 inches thick.
Lenovo's U300 (13.3 inches) and U400 (14 inches) sport HD displays, second generation Core processors, bootup times of less than 17 seconds, AMD Radeon HD 6470M graphics, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, up to 1TB HDD (or up to 256GB SSD), and a slot-loading DVD burner (U400 only).
The U300 and U400 will go on sale in November starting at $1,200 and $850, respetively.
