Enhanced by a frameless screen and weighing approximately 1.09 kgs (with the four cell Battery), the 11-inch wide notebook's infinite-like viewing experience and thin and light frame cater to the highly mobile user, proving style and technology can go hand-in-hand.

Dolby Home Theatre and the MultiMedia Control Centre provide excellent sound quality while putting multimedia options at the user's fingertips.

Lenovo tailored the notebook for a perfect fit on performance with a 120 GB hard drive, up to 3 GB of memory, Intel Centrino processing technology, a built-in camera, WLAN, Ethernet and Bluetooth (select models) connectivity, an external DVD burner and the Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium operating system.
