Following a tweet by Dynamism today I took a look around to see if others were also advertising the Lenovo Ideapad U300s. Sure enough, we’ve got model details and prices available at a range of places in the USA and even an estimated shipping date. It won’t be long!
The specifications match what we were told at IFA with two models being available.
- 10802BU – U300S CI5/1.6 With Intel Core I5-2467M, 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD for around $1200 RRP
- 108026U – U300S CI7/1.8 With Intel Core I7-2677M, 4GB RAM and 256GB SSD for around $1600 RRP (Grey)
or 108027U – U300S CI7/1.8 With Intel Core I7-2677M, 4GB RAM and 256GB SSD for around $1600 RRP (Clementine Orange)
For $1200 you won’t have to worry about a Core i3 or a small SSD and there’s Rapid-Drive technology, USB3.0, Wi-Di capable network card, Anti-Theft, Rapid-Charge and a full aluminum shell. [We’ve updated the U300 specifications page]
Dynamism are estimating a ship date of October the 17th for the Core i7 versions of the U300.
Note: The Lenovo Ideapad U300s is the ‘ultrabook’ version of the existing Lnovo Ideapad U300. Lighter, rapid-charge included.
