The Lenovo IdeaPad U150 has been spotted a number of times before, and is currently available to purchase in Japan, but until today the rest of the world was left out cold.
While not technically a netbook the U150 is well and truly in the netbook size category at 11.6-inches. The thin and light notebook features a 11.6-inch LCD with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics and up to a massive 8GB of RAM.
The IdeaPad U150 will have a starting price of $585 in the US, and will be available mid way through November.
Lenovo say that the U150 will feature an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, but the exact model is unknown. The version currently floating around Japan comes with 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, a multi-touch pad, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.1.
It features a 6-cell 57WHr battery, which is quoted to run for 7 hours running the included Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.
The Lenovo U150 weighs just 3.3 pounds, and measures 0.5 – 1.35 inches thick. It’s also interesting to note that there are two RAM slots, and a free PCI express slot.
