Lenovo is set to release the first batch of its IdeaPad U300e ultrabook here in the Philippines by end of this month.
The IdeaPad U300e, first seen on the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES), is the affordable sibling of last year’s IdeaPad U300s. The IdeaPad U300e is speculated in several regions to be very much cheaper than its predecessor, but that’s not going to be the case even here in the Philippines as the presser we got says Lenovo put it a price tag of Php 49,995 – just Php 6K less than U300s’ official SRP.
