Lenovo introduced the 13-inch IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook, a super slim notebook PC designed for fashion-minded consumers who want a product that is stylish, yet also powerful and productive.
The U300s Ultrabook features up to 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, and boot up in as little as 10 seconds with Enhanced Experience 2.0 RapidDrive SSD technology. The U300s has a 13.3″ ultra-slim 16:9 widescreen HD display, 4GB DDR3 memory and up to 256GB of SSD storage.
At just 0.6 inches (14.9mm) thick, the U300s is built from a single-piece aluminum shell to create a sleek and lightweight product weighing in at less than three pounds. Available in Graphite Grey 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, with the Lenovo Long Life Battery, the U300s provides 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% capacity in just 30 minutes.
Also included is 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.
The IdeaPad U300s features HD graphics support, a HDMI output and integrated stereo speakers with SRS Premium Surround Sound. Plus, you can stream content into your TV with Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) Technology.
