Lenovo is improving its game in the ultrabook category, announcing two new slim IdeaPads, the 13-inch IdeaPad U310 along with the 14-inch IdeaPad U410. Equipped with Intel’s recently announced third-generation processors, the brand new IdeaPads offer better processing with longer battery minimizing starting prices than previous models, just like the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s.
The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 is really a 13-inch consumer ultrabook, starting at $749 that’s furnished with a third-generation Core i3 and 320GB harddrive with 32GB flash memory cache. For the people prepared to spend more, the IdeaPad U310 will also be provided by Core i5 and i7 processors or more to 500GB hard disk drive capacity. All configurations include a 13.3-inch display with 1366-by-768 resolution, stereo speakers with Dolby Home theatre v4 sound enhancement, USB 2.0 and three.0 ports, HDMI output, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and up to seven hours of life of the battery. Measuring 0.7-inch thick and weighing 3.74 pounds, the Lenovo IdeaPad U310 keeps the flat book-style clamshell design seen for the Lenovo U300s, and is for sale in a selection of colors, including Sapphire Blue, Aqua Blue, Cherry Blossom Pink, Graphite Grey or Metallic Red.
Stepping up in space to 14 inches will be the Lenovo IdeaPad U410, which measures 0.83-inches thick and weighs 4.18 pounds. The IdeaPad U410 features the same Intel Ivy Bridge processors observed in the U310, but bumps around 8GB of RAM and adds a discrete Nvidia GeForce 610M graphics card with 1GB of memory. Hard drive capacity ranges from 500GB to 1TB with an optional 32GB cache, or full solid-state drives (SSD). The 14-inch screen offers 1366-by-768 resolution, with Dolby Home theatre v4 sound enhancement. The Lenovo IdeaPad U410 starts at $799 by having an Intel Core i3 processor.
Lenovo has equipped both systems using the latest iteration of Lenovo EnhancedExperience 3, including power management and Lenovo’s FasterBoot and BootShield, which optimize start-up and shifts non-essential apps to load following your initial system boot. Lenovo includes SmartUpdate, Lenovo’s proprietary version of Intel Smart Connect Technology, that allows a laptop to remain getting updates to emails and social media whilst in a sleep state, so you’re always current.
Both the Lenovo IdeaPad U310 and IdeaPad U410 are available today within the U.S. and lots of other countries through Lenovo’s website and are available through major retailers later this month.
