Lenovo teases IdeaPad U450p CULV notebook

Lenovo IdeaPad U450p shows

Computer manufacturer Lenovo has posted a teaser page for an upcoming IdeaPad U450p notebook, revealing nearly no information at all as a full-blown product page does not yet exist. At 14 inches, it's the larger sibling to the recently launched 13.3-inch IdeaPad U350 and will add an optical drive. Like the U350, it will be powered by a range of Intel's Consumer Ultra Low Voltage (CULV) processors, though which ones exactly isn't known.

The U350 uses a 1.2GHz Celeron M in its base configuration, with the options of a 1.3GHz Pentium dual-core or 1.4GHz Core 2 Solo. The U450p should offer similar choices, and it's expected to be a little thicker than the U350's 1-inch profile and heavier than 3.5lbs on account of the optical drive and larger chassis. The U350 also has a standard 4-cell battery, though Lenovo offers an 8-cell that is said to provide 10 hours of battery life.

While the U350 starts at $649, pricing or a release date for the U450p hasn't been released. Lenovo is expected to provide more information on the system soon.
