We must say that we're quite giddy about the recent developments in tech and the drool-worthy pieces of metallic wonder that it has so far produced. The iPhone 5. The Samsung S III. The Asus Zenbook Prime. 3D TVs. The Dell Alienware Gaming laptop. Libre naman mangarap, di ba?! Now, if only we had bottomless pockets so we could enjoy them as much as possible...
Good guy Lenovo seems to be listening to our wishes, as the company has just launched two new slim laptops with pang-masa price tags. Well, almost.
Lenovo IdeaPad S300
Let us clarify first that these two new laptops are not as thin as ultrabooks (those measure under 22mm), but they're still quite anorexic, coming in at just under an inch thick. The first one of the duo is the IdeaPad S300, a sleek machine that sports an Intel CPU with 4GB of RAM and 500GB of storage and an HDMI port. In the eye-candy department, there's a 13.3-inch HD display while USB 3.0 ports will take care of your file transfer speeds. Wireless connectivity via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are also part of the mix as well.
Lenovo IdeaPad S400
Lenovo's other relatively cheap new laptop is the IdeaPad S400. It's almost like the S300's identical twin, except that it has a larger screen. The S400 also boasts of 500GB of capacity, 4GB of RAM, an Intel CPU, and USB 3.0 and HDMI ports. The display on this one is on HD and is a bit larger at 14 inches (hooray, people who like it bigger!). There's also a built in HD webcam for those who'd like to Skype hi-def style. But, just like its smaller bro, it's less than an inch thick.
Pricing and availability
Liking those specs? Then you might be pleased that both notebooks have SRPs that are, as they say, abot-kamay. The Ideapad S300 will start at P21,995 while the IdeaPad S400 should go for P3,000 more for the Core i3 version. Not bad. Expect them to find their place on local store shelves very soon.
