‘Shocking thinness and price” says the advertising for the new Lesance NB S3431 Ultrabook.  While 19mm might not be a shock to anyone that reads Ultrabooknews, the price of $725 (59980 Yen) is pretty impressive.

Yes, this is a Japan-only model (although expect it to reach other countries under other brands – this looks like one of the first 2nd-tier OEM Ultrabooks to hit the market) and the specs are so-so when compared to other Ultrabooks but for the mainstream market this price is a good indicator.  Continued…

The weight is at the high-end of the scale but think about it from the mainstream laptop perspective. This Ultrabook is fast heading towards mainstream. $699 pricing is round the corner and competition like this just speeds up the process.

Specs:

  • 14”, 1366×768 (glossy)
  • Core i5 2467M (1.6Ghz)
  • 4GB RAM
  • 500GB HDD + 64GB cache (That’s a large cache, I wonder if Windows been installed on the 64GB SSD. The advertising leads me to believe it is only a cache drive.)
  • VGA and LAN ports, 2x USB2.0 ports.
  • Card reader
  • 5hr battery life (JEITA – watch out for that one as it’s a simple test.)
  • 1.64kg weight.
