Lenovo Gets Glamorous with Two Luxury Ultraportable Laptops

Slim Design and Ultra-Responsive Performance

SINGAPORE - Lenovo sashays into the fashion world with two new luxury laptops, the IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook, and the U400 laptop. Bridging haute couture with superior technology, these laptops are designed for fashion-minded consumers who want a product that is stylish, yet also powerful and productive – the ultimate fusion for individuals who take technology and fashion seriously.

IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook

The spectacularly slim U300s Ultrabook, made possible with Intel, is a unique statement for consumers who equally value style and responsiveness. Featuring a 2nd Generation Intel Core i5 processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, and boot up in as little as 10 seconds with Enhanced Experience 2.0 RapidDrive SSD technology1, the U300s is ready to roll no matter what the task. The U300s has a 13.3" ultra-slim 16:9 widescreen HD display, 4GB DDR3 memory and 128GB of SSD storage.

At just 14.9mm thick, the U300s is built from a single-piece aluminum shell to create a sleek and lightweight product weighing in at 1.32 kg. Available in Graphite Gray or limited-edition Clementine Orange – the trendy colors have been applied through an electrolytic process, and sandblasted to create a perfect, scratch-resistant coating.

Other smart technologies include the one-of-a-kind Breathable Keyboard, an Intel Advanced Cooling Technology that allows air to flow in through the keyboard and out of the sides and rear hinge. This design removes the need for vents on the underside of the notebook – making it ideal for long periods of use on your lap or even on a pillow!

Despite its ultra-slim design, the Lenovo Long Life Battery provides the U300s up to eight hours of productive use or an incredible 30 days on standby. And with Lenovo RapidCharge, its battery can be charged to 50 percent capacity in just 30 minutes.

Also included are Bluetooth, high-speed 802.11n Wi-Fi, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 connectors, as well as an integrated 1.3M (720p HD) webcam.

IdeaPad U400 Ultraportable Laptop

The IdeaPad U400 brims with intelligent technologies that let consumers do more with less. It comes with a 2nd Generation Intel Core processor and features a boot up time of under 17 seconds, thanks to optional RapidDrive SSD technology. The U400 has a 14” HD display and ATI Radeon HD6470M 1GB graphics. The U400 also has an integrated slot-loading DVD-RW drive.

The Long Life Battery lasts for up to seven hours on the U400. The U400 also features the same Breathable Keyboard technology as the U300s.

Entertainment Abounds

The IdeaPads U300s and U400 both feature HD graphics support, a HDMI output and integrated stereo speakers with SRS Premium Surround Sound for an immersive sound experience when watching “Devil Wears Prada” on DVD, streaming Mary Ma’s latest runway show online or listening to Beyoncé! Plus, you can bring computer content to life-sized magnitude wirelessly on a big screen from the U300s Ultrabook or the U400 ultraportable with Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) Technology.
