Lenovo officially announced the IdeaPad U260, the world’s first 12.5-inch ultraportable consumer notebook giving users a 16:9 widescreen dimension in a 12-inch form factor for the first time. The design of the slim and fashionable U260 is inspired by the silhouette of a classic leather-bound journal. It has a specially engineered one-piece magnesium-aluminum alloy frame, making it stronger yet thinner and lighter.
The IdeaPad U260 is powered by Core i3-380UM or Core i5-470UM, up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. It includes Dolby Advanced Audio surround sound speakers, and HDMI output. The notebook also features the Breathable Keyboard, an Intel Advanced Cooling Technology that allows the PC to run cooler and maintain spill resistance. Its black leather-patterned palm rest is soft to the touch providing comfort and support for the user while giving a luxurious look.
Lenovo’s U260 is available in mocha brown or clementine orange and is available for $899.
