Lenovo’s IdeaPads U310 and U410 as well as the ThinkPads X1 Carbon and T430u, the S Series further expands Lenovo’s range of ultraportable laptops, enabling us to offer an even wider variety of options, from entry level up to premium, from consumers to corporate, to suit the different needs of our customers.”

 

Your Stylish, Ultraportable Companion

 

Measuring less than an inch at the thickest point and weighing approximately 1.8kg, Lenovo’s highly portable S Series laptops feature a contemporary design with a tactile metallic finish available in two striking colors, red and silver grey. The S series laptops are also the perfect entertainment companion, with premium multimedia features like a 14-inch HD widescreen display, HDMI output, stereo speakers and Dolby® Advanced Audio™ v2 certification.

 

Powerful and Intelligent

 

Equipped with the latest technology, the Lenovo IdeaPad S Series laptops come with Intel’s 2nd and 3rd generation Core™ i3 and i5 processors respectively. With up to 500GB hard disk storage capacity, users have plenty of space to store music, movies and documents. In addition, the intelligent energy management features not only increases time spent between charges—up to 5 hours—but also protects the long-term durability of the battery.

 

The updated S Series’ intelligent touchpad gives users a more controlled experience when scrolling and zooming, while the AccuType keyboard with individual rounded keys provides a platform for comfortable and accurate typing.

 

Users can also take advantage of innovative features such as the Lenovo Quick Start “instant on” functionality to get online in seconds. Data protection is made easy with Lenovo’s OneKey™ Rescue System, which offers an amazingly simple and quick way to back up and restore data, recover corrupted system files and run a complete virus scan.
