Lenovo showcases new Ultrabook

Lenovo has been busy at IFA this year, but top of the list is the announcement of its latest Ultrabook

 

Earlier Ultrabook efforts from Lenovo - the U410 and the U310 - offered style, affordability and a reasonably impressive amount of performance. Now the U510 Ultrabook looks set to continue that trend.

There are plenty of interesting features to get excited about, most importantly the inclusion of a Blu-ray drive - something we've not yet seen on an Ultrabook.

It hasn't come at the expense of size, mind. The 15.6-inch Lenovo U510 measures a scant 21mm thick and weighs just under 2.2kg. Ultrabook class means we can expect a fast boot-up and Lenovo claims the system will resume from sleep in just over a second.

Also thrown into the mix is a HDD/SSD combo that should see you getting 1TB of hard disk space with 32GB of SSD goodness keeping the start-up process moving quickly.

The Lenovo U510 will be available with a range of spec - up to Intel's third generation Core i7 processor and discrete Nvidia graphics.

The Lenovo U510 will come with Windows 8 out of the box and all the usual connectivity is present and accounted for.

Lenovo Ultrabooks have been steadily improving and the U510 looks set to challenge the likes of the Asus Zenbook Prime and the Acer Aspire S5 for the top spot.

The basic configuration will arrive at £750 when the Lenovo U510 goes on sale in the UK in September.
