£399 Lenovo U350 SU3500 4GB 320GB Black Sub Laptop

Lenovo is pushing the envelope on design to bring consumers ultra-thin, ultra-light and ultra-loaded PC technology. Encased in a sophisticated sleek silver shell, the IdeaPad U350 laptop starts at 3.5 pounds and measures one inch thin.

While thin and light to the touch on the outside, Lenovo loaded the PC inside with the latest entertainment and computing features to enhance and simply users’ digital worlds. A 16:9 aspect ratio high definition 13.3 inch LED screen and an HDMI connector allow users to fully enjoy watching movies or other multimedia in high definition.

The IdeaPad U350 laptop also packs in several unexpected features, such as Ambient Light Sensor which automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness according to the lighting environment, reducing eye strain while preserving battery life.

Also, Dolby Sound Room complements the video experience by providing a high quality surround-sound audio experience. And with VeriFace facial recognition technology, users can make their face their password for easy log in. A camera also comes in handy for video messaging or making Skype calls using the laptop’s WiFi connectivity.

The laptop’s entertainment features are powered by a backbone of computing technologies, including choices of Intel Core 2 Solo and Pentium ultra low voltage processors, up to 8 GB high speed DDR3 memory and up to 500 GB of hard drive storage.

These technologies help users to do more, faster, such as editing video to post on social networking sites and watching streaming video. For high reliability which is important to individual business users whether on the clock or off, Lenovo borrowed a component of ThinkPad laptop design with the Active Protection System.

This helps protect data by temporarily stopping the hard drive if the laptop should fall. The IdeaPad U350 laptop (opens in new tab) also comes with OneKey Rescue System to help recover data in just a few simple steps if it becomes corrupted.
