As expected, Lenovo introduced the IdeaPad U150 thin and light laptop during a global web conference event today. There aren’t a ton of suprises, seeing as the laptop is already available in Japan. But here’s one thing we didn’t know until today: The Ideapad U150 will have a starting price of $585 in the US.

The laptop has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and supports up to 8GB of RAM. It weighs just under 3 pounds, and features a Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics and an HDMI output.One interesting note is that Lenovo says it will feature a Core 2 Duo processor. I’ve seen the Japanese version described as having an Intel SU2300 processor, which I was pretty sure was a dual core Celeron processor. So it’s not clear whether the IdeaPad U150 will be getting a new CPU, or if the SU2300 is actually a Core 2 Duo processor.

The IdeaPad U150 should be available in mid-November.

In other news, Lenovo announced that the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 line of Intel Atom-powered netbooks will be available with a range of colorful new lids. You can check out a picture after the break.

  1. It’s on the Lenovo website today. Just ordered a Lenovo IdeaPad U150 – 690969U – Black [SU7300]. I’ll post Brad’s benchmarks when I get it. I appreciate this website.

    1. The Lenovo U150 (black SU7300) I ordered 11/10/09 morning, the day it appeared on the US website, shipped from Shanghai today.

  2. Well, it would have been nice with ION I woudl agree, but it is not too shabby with the Intel GMA 4500MHD.

  3. I’d buy one if it came with Ion. I don’t want an Intel GMA solution. 🙁

  4. Meh, bit disappointed@price, but then again, i hope it will fade so i can grab one early next year :P!
