First Samsung announces its the Series 7 laptops that will go on sale on Oct 2, then Lenovo shows off 3 laptops in its U-Series. Supposedly based on Intel’s new Ultrabook specification… Lenovo showed CNet its U300s, U300 & U400.
The U300s is supposed to go head-to-head with the MacBook Air… which as you know if you read my recent laptop comparison is the holy grail. The MacBook Air is just too expensive at $1,299. But the U300s at $1,199 is no bargain. I am going to stay under $1,000 when I buy a laptops.
However, the U300 and U400 are going to be more affordable at $799 and $849, respectively. And the U400 is going to be a 14″ laptop. Hopefully they will put the 1600 x 900 display on the U400 and it could make a nice Christmas present to myself.
It looks like the laptop race is on. Let’s see what it brings.
