Intel is pushing for the OEM partners to produce an Ultrabook at a lower starting point and here is one of the first with this lower price model in mind. A great machine for back-to-school purchasers this is a hybrid drive machine with both an SSD for the operating system and boot up as well as regular spinning drive for your data storage. With a 13.3 inch screen and 3.7 lbs weight and 7-8 hour battery life this is a perfect machine to be carrying around from class to class all day long.
When initially looking at this ultrabook you will see that it has more plastic involved in its build then most other ultrabooks, of course those units in the higher price range have more metal involved in their design. If you are on a limited budget and still want some of what this style product brings to the table then the Lenovo U310 series might be a good choice for you.
