Lenovo readies 11.6-inch U150
CULV-book in snake skin
Building on the success of the sleek U350, Lenovo has prepared yet another CULV-based notebook, the 11.6-inch U150.
Mind you, the U350 is one of the best looking ultra thin notebooks on the market and we just love its textured lid, but with the U150 Lenovo has gone a step further. Perhaps even a step too far.
The awkward looking texture used all over the poor U150 looks like snake skin, or maybe a bit like fish scales. Maybe the designers got a bit bored, tessellated the U150's wireframe and called the result a texture, who knows.
Anyway, the U150 will pack dual core CULV parts, probably the SU4100, up to 2GB of memory and a 250GB hard drive. It measures under an inch thick, 23.5mm apparently, and it weighs 1.35kg. It packs a glare screen, and once again glare screens are not something we're crazy about in these parts.
