Lenovo hits Australians with $2999 fashion laptop choice

By Chris Nicholls

SYDNEY: Lenovo has added to the small but growing number of fashion laptops in Australia with their bright red IdeaPad U110 notebook, but the price might put some off.

The red U110 (RRP $2,999), first shown at the CES this year, will lead the two other consumer notebooks introduced into Australia earlier this year – the lower-end Y51 and Y710 notebooks (RRP $1,299 and $2,299 respectively).

The U110 uses a ‘frameless’ 11-inch screen and weighs approximately 1.09 KG with a four cell battery. As with some other mobile devices, the U110 uses a facial recognition system (shared with its less expensive brethren) to log in without passwords. It also boasts Dolby Home Theatre and a MultiMedia Control Centre.

Storage is provided by a 120 GB hard drive and up to 3 GB of memory. WLAN, Bluetooth and Ethernet connectivity is all supported. While it lacks an internal DVD drive, the machine comes with an external DVD burner.

Current.com.au sought comment from Lenovo on its channel strategy, but did not receive a response prior to publication. Further updates will be posted as they become available.
