A New Idea (Pad) for Schools
The latest from Lenovo is its IdeaPad U550, an inexpensive 15.6-inch notebook that includes everything that schools are looking for. The system comes with a Core 2 Duo, Solo or Celeron processor, as well as a 1,366 by 768 resolution wide screen and an innovative graphics engine that can be switched from high-performance ATI Radeon HD4330 to a long battery life Intel GMA X4500 based on the work at hand. The systems come with up to 8GB of RAM and 500GB hard drive, yet weigh just over 5 pounds and start at $550. Look for it in the next month or so.
