Back when we first quietly met the IdeaPad U300e at CES, we were told it’d be carrying a $799 price tag; but contrary to that statement, Lenovo’s put the 13.3-inch Ultrabook up for grabs starting at $959 on its site. That near-grand amount will get you Intel’s Core i5-2476m CPU and HD3000 graphics, 4GB of RAM, a hybrid drive (32GB SSD mixed with 500GB HDD), as well as a Premium copy of Windows 7. More importantly, the machine wouldn’t gracefully fall under the “Ultra” category if it wasn’t flaunting a relatively slim form factor, in which it tightly squeezes through the standards at 0.7-inches in thickness. It’s also about half a pound heavier than its pricier, better specced sibling. Need some additional visuals to decide if it’s worth adding to your cart? Be sure to check out our photo gallery here.
