Lenovo U300S is mere 14.9 mm thick and weighs just 1.3 kilo grams which has been made possible by its full aluminum chassis. So, we now have a notebook that is just 0.6 inches thick. Lenovo has given U300s scratch resistant coating which has been applied via electrolytic process. The notebook comes with RapidCharge technology which allows you to charge it to 50 percent in less than thirty minutes.
Folks at pcpro were able to spend some time with the notebook and they were fairly impressed with it. They do however say that it cannot match Apple Macbook Air 13 inch model or the Samsung Series 9 in terms of slenderness. They complain about the flex that can be experienced at the seams.
The keyboard on the U300S is chic let type. However, as you can see in the below given picture, the right shift key is shrunken down which may annoy the loyal Lenovo users. On the right, there is an HDMI port, USB 3.0 port, power and headphone jack. Left side has single USB port and vents.
Upgrading the RAM and hard disk looks a little difficult to us.
The U300S will come with either Core i5 2647M or the Core i7 2677M which is the same processor being used in the 2011 Apple Macbook Air which means that it no way going to be slow. Macbook Air 2011 series are all known for their speeds and this one is no exception. For storage, you get 256GB SSD which should be ample for your storage needs on the move. [via pcpro]
