If you're like me whose fancy for gadgets is the same as my fondness for overall fashion, then this Lenovo IdeaPad U460 is just right for you.
The IdeaPad U460 offered an intricate textured covers featuring modern look for the next-generation geeky fashion-driven individuals, offering red and black variants with chic geometric print in lay on its lid. The inside comes with a sleek aluminum finish featuring a full-chiclet style keys, as well as touchpad with two buttons for mouse-free navigation. A fingerprint reader is integrated into a system for security and easy access.
The portability comes astutely fitting at the package weighing 4 lbs. and less than 1 inch thick with a promised 6hours of battery life. Of course, we know that battery grades are often nominal at a most power-efficient computing conditions.
The IdeaPad U460 has two variants. Each varies with the processor and graphic card configuration. Intel Core i3-350M 2.26Ghz for 087723U with Intel GMA HM45; while the 087722U comes with Intel Core i5-450M 2.40Ghz with Nvidia Geforce 305M. Although both of them sports dual core chip, they differ in Turbo mode. This is due to the RAM sharing of Intel graphic than the dedicated one wit Nvidia. So from a gaming perspective, the 087722U is better.
The rest of the specs are essentially the same: 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, 14" HD LED 1366 x 768, 8cell Li-Ion battery, and a 1.4MP webcam resolution. Ports include 3USB, ethernet, HDMI, eSATA/USB, 5-in-1 Card Reader, headphone output and mic input. Package is slapped with Windows 7 Home Premium Edition.
The raft of connectivity options include wifi link 1000 and bluetooth version 2.1 + EDR.
Price starts tagged at $799 in the US, while some SKU's are bundled with dataplan in Singapore. I haven't confirmed the price points yet.
