Last night, Lenovo launched the newest members of its laptop product line – the IdeaPad S300 and the IdeaPadS400. These new ultraportable laptops aim to provide a balance between portability and performance at a low price point.
As an entry-level laptop, the IdeaPad S300 uses an Intel Pentium processor and sports a 13.3-inch display while its bigger sibling, the IdeaPad S400, is powered by a 3rd-generation Intel Core i3 processor in a 14-inch HD display (Windows Experience Index scored the Ideapad S400 at 5.1)
Both notebooks looked similar and are equipped with the following — 500GB HDDs, 4GB DDR3 RAM, HDMI ports, USB 3.0 ports, 3MP webcam, stereo speakers, intelligent touchpads and AccuType keyboards. All of these are housed in a chassis that is 21.9mm thin and weighs only 1.8kgs.
The S300 comes in cotton-candy pink and silver grey with a price tag of Php21,995 while the S400 comes in crimson red and silver grey and will sell for Php24,995.
Both units will be available in local stores by third week of September.
