Today, Lenovo announced a new color of its U300s Ultrabook for the Japanese market.
The 13.3-inch (with HD display) IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook will be now available in Graphite Gray color in Japan. Till now, the company was offering only the Clementine Orange (108074J) model with i7-2677M processor, in the land of the rising sun.
The Graphite Gray IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook (108075J ) is powered by 1.6 GHz Intel Core i5-2467M dual-core CPU, 4GB of DDR3 1333MHz (PC3-8500) memory and a 128GB SATA SSD drive.
In addition, it is equipped with a 1.3MP webcam, a USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and an HDMI port. The Ultrabook weighs just 1.32kg, and its battery life holds approximately for 7.5 hours. The Graphite Gray IdeaPad U300s will be available in Japan from February 3rd, this year, with an expected price of ¥110,000 Yen ($1443 USD).
In the States, the japanese (108075J) ultrabook corresponds to the Graphite Gray IdeaPad U300s (10802AU) model, which just before Christmas (last year) was on sale for $1299 USD ($300 USD less of its original price). Recently, Lenovo has reduced it with $100 USD more, along with the high-end model with i7 processor and 256GB SSD (108029U), which also has a $500 USD price reduction and sales for $1499 USD.
