Anyone who has had experience with the Lenovo IdeaPad U series laptops, you would know that these are famous for their extremely thin and light designs, and with a 0.77” thin chassis, you know that your shoulders are not going to start to cramp should you carry either the Lenovo U330 Touch or Lenovo U430 Touch around the showfloor for the entire day. Being as thin as a smartphone would certainly place it in the same league as that of Ultrabooks, although there are other criteria in these two machines that also help propel them to Utlrabook status, such as a frame that weighs at just 3.7 pounds, not to mention having the ability to carry up to 1TB of data with a 16GB SSD, or to take the pure 256GB SSD route.
Up to 4th generation Intel Core i7 processors can be part of the final configuration, in addition to optional NVIDIA GeForce graphics with DirectX 11, The U330 Touch will arrive with a 13.3” HD or FHD display, while the U430 Touch will come in a choice of either a 14” HD+ or FHD display. Expect the IdeaPad U330 Touch to arrive for approximately $799 later this summer, while the IdeaPad U430 Touch is a wee bit more expensive at $899.
