If you're in the market for an Ultrabook, Future Shop has a decent deal on a 14" Lenovo worth checking out. For the next week, you can pick up the Lenovo IdeaPad Ultrabook with Intel Core i5-3317U, 24GB SSD, 750GB HD, 6GB RAM and Nvidia 610M on sale for $649.99 with free shipping. Because Ultrabooks are still relatively new, you're definitely paying a premium for portability but this is a loaded model with some very good features. For $650, the U410 includes:
- Intel Core i5-3317U Processor
- 750GB Hard Drive + 24GB SSD
- 6GB of RAM
- Dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 610M Graphics Card
- USB 3.0, HDMI and Memory Card Reader
- Windows 8 Operating System
The real draw here, though, is size-wise. Closed, the U410 is just 3.4cm thick and weighs just over 4 pounds. The battery is also rated for around 8 hours which makes this a very good traveler. The lack of touch screen technology and Bluetooth connectivity is disappointing but not a deal breaker in our books. All in, this is a capable Ultrabook with some very good features at an affordable price.
The deal is live now but only for the next week and is featured in the Future Shop weekly flyer. Shipping is free.
