Without any fanfare, Lenovo has added the 12.5-inch IdeaPad U260 to its ultraportable notebook collection.

This super slim IdeaPad is not available just yet (neither a price nor a release date has been published), but there are plenty of specs to go over in the mean time.

Measuring only 0.71-inches thick and weighing 3.04 pounds, the IdeaPad U260 comes with Ultra Low Voltage Core i3/Core i5 processor options and possibly only four hours of battery time. Ouch. If that is the case, then this laptop is portable only in size, not time and productivity.

Here are some of the other more useful specs found on this IdeaPad:

  • 12.5-inch HD anti-glare display
  • 4GB RAM
  • 320GB hard drive
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Connectivity: Two USB 2.0 ports, VGA, HDMI
  • Exterior color options: Mocha Brown, Clementine Orange

  • I want the same thing, but, with SSD and Arm processor, 10 hours of battery

    Of course with ChromeOS. Keep it extremely simple, the SSD can be an internal microSD slot with 32GB. For those of us that do not download pornography or a ton of music, 32GB is just fine. The 4 GB of memory would be great though.

    Oh, I also like the bigger 12.5 inch screen. I currently have an 11.6 inch screen which I consider a minimum.

      @DonnieBoy forget ARM, you compile programs or render images w/ ARM. THIS is what I've been looking for in laptops, thin, light, powerful.

  • To jump-start the market, Google should create a dual core Arm netbook,

    with the SAME specifications as this box, except swap the hard drive for SSD, and Intel processor for dual core Arm. Of course ChromeOS. It would be a screamer, it would have longer battery life, and it would cost less.
