Lenovo is adding two new thin and light laptops to its ultrabook lineup with the IdeaPad U310 and U410 notebooks, although they look a little hefty compared with some of the 2 and 3 pounds ultrabooks already on the market.
The Lenovo IdeaPad U310 has a 13.3 inch display, measures 0.7″ thick and weighs about 3.7 pounds. The IdeaPad U410 has a 14 inch screen, measures 0.8″ thick and weighs 4.2 pounds.
Both notebooks will feature Intel Core i-series processors, a choice of a 64GB solid state disk or a 500GB hard drive, and Intel’s Wireless Display (WiDi) technology. Lenovo says they’ll both feature quick resume from sleep, and up to 8 hours of battery life.
The U310 features Intel GMA 3000 HD graphics, while the U410 has NVIDIA GeForce 610M graphics, making the laptop one of the first so-called “ultrabooks” to feature discrete graphics.
The laptops will be available in a variety of colors including shades of gray, red, and blue.
Lenovo will start selling the new U Series laptops in May for $799 and up.
Update: Lenovo has updated the IdeaPad U310 and U410 ultrabooks to feature 3rd generation Intel Core family “Ivy Bridge” processors.
