Lenovo IdeaPad U510, again with Ivy Bridge ultrabook at IFA
Lenovo continues to present new and dramatic devices in this city IFA 2012 in Berlin. While yesterday we were surprised with an Android tablet that transforms into netbook thanks to a QWERTY keyboard dock, the Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 , now begins to make official new laptops, especially the so-called “ultra-thin” as the new Lenovo IdeaPad U510 that certainly got our attention.
Besides having a spectacular and beautiful design, which nobody can deny, this new Ultrabook features an Intel Ivy Bridge processor, the latest generation of these CPUs will give potential, speed and fluidity in their performance, to enjoy a generous almost 16-inch screen.
IdeaPad U510 Specifications
- 15.6-inch screen with a resolution of 1366×768 inches.
- CPU: Intel Ivy Bridge to choose up to a Core i7.
- Up to 8 GB of RAM.
- Storage: Between 500 GB and 1 TB hard drive (HDD), with the option of adding an SSD of 24 or 32 GB.
- DVD optical drive. Optional BluRay.
- Ports: USB 2.0, USB 3.0, VGA, SD card reader and HDMI.
- Weight 2.2 Kg
- Operating system Windows 8.
It is certainly unusual for a Ultrabook incorporate an optical drive DVD or BluRay, since this makes it “fat” compared to other models. However, the U510 has a maximum thickness of 21 mm, not as thin as others but enough to be classified as “slim” and also have your DVD / BR.
According to Lenovo, the IdeaPad has a battery that provides up to 6 hours autonomy of continuous use, not as much as other models of Ultrabooks but enough for a good day’s work. It goes on sale during the month of September with a base price of 699 euros in Europe.
Gizmodo continues at IFA 2012, so soon we’ll tell you our first impressions of this computer.
