Lenovo has added a new 13.3 inch ultrabook to is IdeaPad U line of thin and light laptops. The Lenovo IdeaPad U300e features an Intel Core i5 processor and a $959 price tag, putting it squarely in between the cheaper IdeaPad U260 and the pricier IdeaPad U300S.

The new model sports a 1366 x 768 pixel display, 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 1.3MP camera, and 532GB of disk space thanks to a 500GB hard drive and 32GB solid state disk.

It has HDMI output, WiFi and Bluetooth, and a one-piece touchpad.

The laptop looks virtually identical to the $1499 IdeaPad U300S, but that model has a faster Core i7 processor and a 256GB solid state disk instead of a hard drive/SSD combo.

Lenovo also unveiled 13 and 14 inch ultrabooks called the U310 and U410 at CES earlier this year, with prices expected to start at $799. But there’s no sign of either laptop yet.

  1. I love the concept of hybrid storage.  Only wish the 32gb SSD was a little bigger…  64gb would at least allow you to put your most commonly used apps on it, so they get the speed up boost.  Otherwise decent specs.

    I’d never buy one…  But decent specs.  Not for that price, you’re paying a definite premium for a system that probably doesn’t merit it.  But still.
