Lenovo Philippines introduced their newest ultraportable notebook last night during their annual media Christmas Party, the IdeaPad U260 — the first notebook to have a 12.5″ display screen.
First announced back in November 8, the IdeaPad U260 is part of Lenovo’s thin and light category running a low-power Intel Core i3 UM processor.
Lenovo IdeaPad U260
12.5″ display at 16:9 ratio and 1366×768 pixel resolution
Intel Core i3 UM @ 1.33 GHz
Inel HD Graphics
4GB DDR3 RAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2 x USB 2.0 port
Windows 7 Home Premium
4-cell Li-Po battery
Two variants are available — a Core i3 380UM @ 1.33GHz and a Core i5 470UM @ 1.33GHz with Turbo Boost to 1.87GHz.
At just 0.71″ thin and 3.04lbs, it certainly is among the sleekest ultraportable notebook we’ve seen this year and should rival the 11.6″ TimelineX of Acer. Lenovo promises up to 4 hours battery life on the 4-cell Li-Po battery.
Lenovo disclosed that suggested retail price will start from Php44,990 (Core i3) up to Php51,990 (Core i5), depending on some of the specs. Available in Mocha Brown and Clementine Orange, units will be released by January 2011.
