Lenovo U300s ultrabook hits stores for Php55,990

Launched back in December Lenovo’s own line of ultrabook, the Lenovo U300s, is now in stores and selling for a Php55,990 price tag. It took a bit of time for the U300 to be released locally but it’s finally here to offer us more options.

Lenovo U300s specs:
13.3″ LED display @ 1366×768 pixels
Intel Core i5 4667M 1.8GHz
Turbo Boost to 2.9GHz
Intel HD 3000
Gigabit LAN (10/100/1000Mbps)
Bluetooth 2.1
1 x USB 3.0 port
2 x USB 2.0 port
HDMI output
1.3MP (720p HD) webcam
Intel Wireless Display
4-cell Li-Ion battery (up to 8 hours)
Windows 7 Home Premium

With only a 4-cell battery, I doubt Lenovo’s 8-hour promise is achievable.

At 14.9mm thin, it may not seem as thin as the Macbook Air or the Asus Zenbook since the entire body is flat and does not taper towards the edges like the others. Net weight is also at an impressive 2.9lbs.

With a suggested retail price of Php55,990, it sits right into the middle of the usual price range for ultrabooks.

The U300s is only available in 13.3″ and not the smaller 11.6″ like the one on the Zenbook and the Macbook Air.

  1. wow nice option

  2. i am still weighing on what to get between asus zenbook and acer s3..and now this one..hmmm..anu kaya maganda?

      Between the Asus Zenbook & Acer S3, (assuming no budget constraints) I would choose the Zenbook for it’s sharp/sexy looks.

      BUT value for money, the Acer S3 is a good choice because it is cheaper by around P10,000.

    The LENOVO U300 has a weird deletion. It does not have a SD Card reader, if I remember correctly.

  4. pag mga ultra books ba na tulad ng Lenovo at Samsung ay may cd drive?

  5. san ba makakamura..yung bilhin yan dito or sa US?

      You might not need to go as far… In Hong Kong, you can buy the Acer S3 for an equivalent of P38K+ compared to the local price of P44K+.

    • mahal kapag direct ang shipment dito sa atin diba?

    Got this as a gift for the wife. We have all Apple computers in the house and this is our first PC after many years since the wife requested a Windows OS. So far so good. Still getting used to Windows 7 environment but set up is a breeze. Oh, by the way, I got this for P55K discounted but he reseller who is a friend.

    correction: P50K instead of P55K discounted price (presyong kaibigan)

  8. It’s still got a crappy video card. Don’t expect to play any good games here.

    @Talo If you need a laptop with a “good” video card then you don’t need an ultrabook but a gaming laptop.

  10. Ultrabooks are not game PCs. It’s primary point is speed, lightweight, style & portability. Although video playback is important, gaming is not part of it.

    If you want a laptop with a great video card, get a gaming notebook instead.
