Lenovo appears to be working on a more ‘wallet friendly’ ultrabook, the U300e, which is a mix between the lower end, U260 and their flagship, U300s. The notebook will be powered by a Core i5 processor and will be priced at $960 US (Rs.47,090), which is quite a bit cheaper than their current offerings.
Cheap is good
So, what’s changed? Where have Lenovo compromised in order to bring down the cost? As it turns out, not a lot, in fact you’re getting a lot more by paying less. If we compare it with the U300s that we reviewed recently, then you’ll see that it still has the same Core i5-2467M CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 13.3-inch screen with a 1366 x 768 resolution. Even the design and look is pretty much identical to the U300s. The new addition (rather than omission) is a 500GB laptop hard drive, along with a 32GB SSD, so you get speedy performance as well as ample storage space. Their flagship model offered up to a 256GB SSD only, which shot the price northwards. This does mean that weight is a little bit more, nothing you’ll notice too much. The notebook is already available for sale in U.S. and it’s only a matter of time till it gets here.
