After the Acer S3, Lenovo steps in the Ultrabook segment with the launch of the U300s. Available from all major retail outlets, the IdeaPad U300s is priced at Rs.67,900, plus taxes. The U300s is built from a single piece of aluminium that form the chassis, similar to the MacBook Air. Due to this, it has a thickness of just 14.9mm and weighs less than 1.3 kg. It also packs in some technologies like ‘Breathable Keyboard’, which uses Intel’s Advanced Cooling Technology, which allows air to flow in through the keyboard and out the sides and the rear hinge.

This design removes the need for vents on the underside of the notebook, making it ideal for long periods of use. The Lenovo Long Life Battery provides the U 300s up to 8 hours of productive use or 30 days on standby. With Lenovo RapidCharge, the battery can be charged to 50 percent capacity in just 30 minutes.

The 13.3-inch HD ready screen is LED backlit and the notebook is powered by Intel’s 2nd Generation Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. Along with that, we also have Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi ‘n’, USB 3.0 and 2.0, HDMI, SRS Sound enhancement, Intel’s WiDi technology and finally, a 1.3MP webcam. Acer’s similarly speced Ultrabook is actually slightly cheaper, so it’s interesting to see what special Lenovo’s offering will bring to the table.
