Folks who have been waiting for the Ideapad U150 would be pleased to know that it is now available Stateside, but there is a downside to it. The US version is seemingly overpriced when compared to thinner and lighter notebooks from its competitors, Asus and Acer. $699 will net you an 11.6″ notebook with an Intel Pentium SU4100 1.3GHz processor, Intel X4500 graphics, 3GB RAM, a 250GB hard drive and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Top that up with another $150 and you will get a speedier Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor, 4GB RAM, a 320GB and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support.
