$800, 14″ Lenovo Ultrabook Set To Take On Macbook Air In 2012

X

As the Ultrabook battle hots up speculation is mounting that Lenovo is set to launch an $800 model next year that will significantly undercut Apple’s MacBook Air.An internal Lenovo product roadmap has been leaked, that has a 14-inch “mainstream” ThinkPad ultrabook arriving in May or June of 2012, at a price closer to $800.

Currently several vendors are holding their pre Xmas Ultrabook pricing at over $1,000 due to a shortage of supply with some vendors pushing the introductory price to over $1,300 in Australia.

A 13-inch “premium” model, meant as a sequel to the ThinkPad X1, would also arrive around the same time. Both would use Intel’s upcoming Ivy Bridge processor architecture and its matching platform, Chief River.

The 13-inch ultraportable should dual-boot both Windows and a customised version of Android with the same front end as the IdeaPad K1.  Electronista claims that similar to the largely discarded Linux boots of before, the leaner mobile OS should both start up faster and double battery life to 10 hours for those who only need basics like the web, music, and e-mail.
