Lenovo IdeaPad U300e priced at Php49,995, calls itself a budget-friendly Ultrabook

The Lenovo IdeaPad U300e quietly made its way in store shelves for the tune of Php49,995, and this is what Lenovo considers to be the affordable equivalent of its IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook.

The IdeaPad U300e Ultrabook is only 18mm thin and weighs about 1.58kg. It fuses tactile materials like the full-aluminium shell and cool-touch palmrest together with smart innovations like extra long battery life of up to 7 hours and 2nd generation Intel Core processor.

Instead of a pure SSD storage like its pricier sibling, the IdeaPad U300e uses a hybrid drive system. 32GB SSD just for system files for a quick boot-up with the aid of Lenovo’s Enhanced Experience 2.0 and 500GB HDD for the rest of your applications and files.

The IdeaPad U300e also runs on a 2nd generation Core i5 Intel processor but everything else is pretty much the same as the U300s. There’s the 13.3″ display, 4GB DDR3 RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium and the unique Breathable Keyboard that allows air to penetrate through the keys.

The first batch of IdeaPad U300e comes with a free warranty promo upgrade to 2 years parts and labor will be available in Lenovo concept stores and retailers nationwide at Php49,995 by end of March.

    sana next year 29k na lang mga ultrabooks. bibili talaga ako kahit dalawa pa. Kapag hindi sila nagbaba ng price. RIP Ultrabook. =)

    So, eto yung pangtapat nila sa Samsung Series 5 Ultra. Oops, no ODD.

    • yung ODD na series 5 is for the 14-inch. so right now, ito, yung series 5, and the acer s3 are the ultrabooks having a hybrid HDD/SDD storage

      • Neil

        Ay oo nga no. Pero kung sa design, mas bet ko yung Series 5, kaso yung arrow keys nila ang liit.

        Pero ang pinag-iipunan ko talaga ying HP Pavillion dm1z. Ayos na ko dun. 😀

    is this the contender against macbook pro?

  • Eric

    IMHO, it shouldn’t be called an Ultrabook unless it sports a pure SSD (i.e. not HDD + SSD configuration). Otherwise, it’s just a thin notebook/laptop.

    If some company can make a 1TB Flash disk, how come they can’t put it on these laptops? And, the price is still, meh.

    • maybe they can but they won’t because it will be too expensive for people to buy.

  • Griswold

    in my opinion it’s still overpriced. dapat halos mag kasing price lang with the acer s3.
