The Ultrabook stampede continues

If you haven't noticed by now, Ultrabooks will be a big part of CES 2012. Vizio caught us all off guard this weekend with its announcement of two fresh entries into the Ultrabook sector, and Acer today announced the world's thinnest Ultrabook with the Aspire S5.
Lenovo also has two new Ultrabook announcements today (the company also announced a new ThinkPad Ultrabook last week), although they won't be vying for the "thin and light" crown like the aforementioned Aspire S5. First up is the 3.74-pound IdeaPad U310 which packs a 13" display (1366x768), Intel Core processors, 4GB of RAM, your choice of a 500GB HDD or a 64GB SSD, Intel GMA 3000 HD graphics, and Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) Technology.

Stepping up to the 4.18-pound IdeaPad U410 gets you a 14" display and NVIDIA GeForce 610M GPU with 1GB of video memory. All other specs match up with the smaller IdeaPad U310.
Both Ultrabooks will be available in Aqua Blue, Cherry Blossom, Graphite Gray, Ruby Red, Sapphire Blue and Spearmint. The starting price for the new U-Series Ultrabooks is $699 and they will be available starting in May.

You're exactly right but somehow they got rated up. Really informed people here at DT.

Apple laptops, both the MacBooks and Air ALL use cheap TN panels. This is true for almost all laptops. But like you say some other companies do offer quality IPS options - like Lenovo.

Thnx for the comment.
In case it wasn't clear to some the racist comments I made were intended to be sarcastic b/c I feel that Lenovo gets a bad rap for being a Chinese company (btw, I'm a Caucasian American) but they actually offer some damn nice laptops.

Yellow... I thought at first you were referring to the yellowing screens on some of apples products. Because when the screen is yellowing, even Caucasians look yellow.

Heh, I hadn't heard about that issue with Apple. I'm guessing that's an adhesive issue.
