Lenovo U110 IdeaPad appears online for $1,999

Lenu110bpngThe next contender in the small but fully functional notebook market is nearing: Lenovo’s U110 IdeaPad has surfaced at on-line retailer J&R. It’s the same WXGA 11.1-inch unit that wowed us at this year’s CES… so much so, that we left fingerprints all over the demo unit. The $1,999 price tag is justified by the specs and what’s under the hood, although I was hoping we’d see this device under $1,500.The U110 runs a 1.6 GHz version of the Intel Core 2 Duo ULV with 3 GB of RAM and a 120 GB hard drive at the two-grand price. Weight is definitely a “feature” in my opinion, as the U110 weighs three pounds with the standard battery. There are three USB ports, Bluetooth, 802.11a/g/n, VGA out, a 1.3-megapixel webcam and no optical drive. This device is definitely in the same space as the MacBook Air and Lenovo X300; looks to me like folks that long for an X300 but don’t want an SSD, or the premium it commands, have another Lenovo option.(via Laptoping)
