The 11.6-inch Lenovo Ideapad U150 ultra-thin was released in Japan last week and Peter over at Netbooked picked one up to review. Initial impressions appear to be positive, with superior build quality over the similarly-specced Acer Aspire AS1410. It comes with a 6-cell (4680mAh) battery that does bulk out of the bottom more than the AS1410. Accessibility is easy as the U150’s bottom panel reveals access to the hard drive, two RAM slots as well as a free PCI-E slot.
The Ideapad U150 sports an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display and is powered by a 1.2GHz SU2300 processor. It comes with 2GB RAM (8GB max) and a 250GB HDD. Other features include Wi-Fi (b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1, 1.3MP webcam, HDMI, two USB ports, card reader and unusually a combo USB/eSATA port. Check out the video unboxing after the break.
