Still looking for a laptop that can provide you both power and style? Opting to buy Apple’s Mac Book Pro but can’t squeeze enough money from your own pocket? Here’s good news. Lenovo just recently announced the IdeaPad U300s that is powerful inside yet visibly fashionable. It is at par with the Mac Book Pro in terms of computing speed backed by 2nd generation Intel Core i7 (with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0) that can give you the ‘shot in the arm’ in your day-to-day processing needs.
But there’s a problem with powerful computing system. It is very common that these systems can rapidly drain the battery when unplugged from the wall socket. Worry no more. Lenovo has developed ‘RapidCharge’ technology that allows you to juiced-up your laptop by 50% in just 30 minutes. This unique feature from Lenovo that is built-in into the IdeaPad U300s will certainly lessen the problem of charging your laptop for long hours. For a single charge this laptop can last up to 8 hours during normal usage or 30 days on standby.
Long hours of using the IdeaPad U300s on your bed or a pillow that could overheat your laptop will never be a problem. Using smart technologies like the uniquely designed Breathable Keyboard, the heat coming from the innards of your laptop will flow upward through your keyboard and out of the sides and rear hinge. You may no longer need those laptop coolers anymore that require an extra USB port on your already overcrowded collection of USB peripheral device.
The Lenovo IdeaPad was also built with fashion in the mind. It was neatly crafted using a single-piece aluminum shell that only weighs less than 3 pounds. To protect all the goodies inside, the aluminum shell has undergo a coating process that makes it scratch-resistant. It measures a display of 13.3 inches hidden in its 0.6 inch (14.9mm) slim body making it lightweight that allows you to move from one place to another with comfort, style and ease.
