HH Inspects The Lenovo IdeaPad U310, A More Affordable Ultrabook

Ultrabooks may be selling like hotcakes but one area that has obviously been a challenge for notebook manufacturers is price point. Intel's $1,000 goal (not to mention their recent Ivy Bridge ULT-based $799 target) has been hard to hit, given all the pricey tech that goes into making these slim systems sing. Most have come in at well over the $1K mark – until recently. That brings us to the Lenovo IdeaPad U310, which has a price tag that, depending on the configuration, slides the machine into mainstream notebook territory.

Today, we're taking a look at Lenovo's IdeaPad U310 Core i5-3317U model, which weighs in nicely at  Intel's current even more aggressive utltrabook price target at $799.99.
