Lenovo Launches IdeaPad U310 and U410 Ultrabooks

The 13-inch U310 and the 14-inch U410 are between 18 mm and 21 mm thick and weigh 3.7 and 4.2 lbs, respectively.

Due to their mainstream focus, both models compromise on mass storage and use a hybrid HDD-SSD solution rather than a solid state drive alone. Lenovo chose to use 500 GB and 1 TB HDDs and a 32 GB SSD to serve as data cache that support fast-boot and fast-resume.

The systems are available with Ivy Bridge i3, i5 and i7 processors, Intel's WiDi technology, Dolby Home Theatre v4 sound, and Nvidia discrete graphics. Prices start at $750 for the U310 and at $800 for the U410.

    More decent ultrabooks. There's now lots of choices. It'll be interesting to see how Apple has actually decided to upgrade the Air to differentiate it from all the newcomers.

    If it comes with thunderbolt and the MSI GUS II is released, it would be very attractive for people who need to game on the run.
