The 11.6-inch IdeaPad U150 notebooks from Lenovo recently began to ship in the United States. There are two models available, both of them using CULV processors and running the 64-bit version of Microsoft’s Windows 7 Home Premium. They also have an integrated Intel GMA 4500 graphics chipset and an 11.6-inch display with a resolution of 1,366×768.
The starting model is based on a 1.3GHz Intel Pentium dual-core processor, while the second one is using a 1.3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The entry model has 3GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive, while the high-end version has 4GB of internal memory and a 320GB hard disk drive. The last difference between the two models is the use of the Broadcom 802.11g Wi-Fi chipset for the base model, while the second one uses an Intel 802.11n chipset. Both models are powered by six-cell batteries.
The prices for the Lenovo IdeaPad U150 notebooks are $699 for the entry model and $849 for the high-end version, respectively.
