Lenovo launches three new budget laptops

Lenovo has launched three new budget-oriented laptops that belong to the Ideapad S series with the best thing being that the newcomers feature vastly improved hardware specs compared to the predecessors. The new laptops carry the S300, S400 and S405 product monikers and offer the latest in the hardware industry.

All three laptops come with a display resolution of 1366 x 768, full QWERTY keyboards, trackpads with gesture support, 720p webcams, and a “tactile metal finish” for the laptop lid that comes in silver, pink, or red colors. External ports include an SD card slot, two USB 2.0 ports, a headphone jack, and power jack on the right side and a USB 3.0 port, HDMI output, Ethernet jack, and recovery button on the left. They are all expected to provide around four hours of battery life, and the laptops weigh in at 3.97 pounds and are 0.86 inches thick. All three models will come with Windows 7, but are eligible for the 14.99 USD upgrade to Windows 8 Professional.

Lenovo Ideapad S300

These are the similarities but what are the differences? The S300 comes with a 13.3-inch display while the other two models offer 14-inch displays but share the same chassis which means the S300 has a slightly bigger bezel. The S300 also offers Intel ultra low voltage (ULV) Core i3 or Core i5 processors, 500 GB of hard drive storage, up to 4 GB of RAM and an optional AMD Radeon HD 7450M video card. Other specs include Intel’s WiDi (wireless display) technology, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, and stereo speakers powered by Dolby Advanced Audio v2.

The S400 is pretty much the same as the S300 but it comes with a larger 14-inch display and offers an optional 32 GB SSD drive. The S400 will be available in two different lid options – a black interior and a red lid or a black interior with silver lid.

The S405 offers an AMD A8 Trinity APU, up to 1 TB of hard drive space, 4 GB of RAM, a 14-inch display and an optional AMD Radeon HD 7450M graphics card. The S405 can also get a 32 GB SSD if the customer wishes so but it does not have Intel’s WiDi technology.

The notebooks will become available by the end of September. In the US they will start at just 499 USD.
