Lenovo Ideapad U330 Touch With Haswell Now Shipping for 699 Euro.

U330 Touch

At 699 Euro, the Haswell-based Lenovo Ideapad U330 is the cheapest Haswell Ultrabook on the market right now. It’s now available to order and shipping, at least in Germany. If you’re not into touch, there’s a non-touch version (not a true 2013 Ultrabook but up to 2012 Ultrabook specs) available for 599 Euro.

Let’s get the rough stuff out of the way first. There’s a 1366×768 screen and no keyboard backlighting. WiFi is a 2.4Ghz-only Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230. Base clock frequency is 1.6Ghz although this is Haswell (Core™ i5-4200U with turbo to 2.6Ghz) we’re talking about here. GPU is a HG44000, not the 5xxx series with higher-power graphics.

On the good side, you’re getting 8GB RAM on this model (59372367), a 500GB hybrid hard drive, full SD card slot, 2xUSB3.0 ports, a USB2.0 port and an HDMI.

Compared to the previous generation Lenovo Ideapad Ultrabooks you’ll be getting a huge improvement in battery life, assuming Lenovo have kept the same battery capacity. It’s quoted for up to 9hrs.

If you don’t want touch, the Lenovo U330P is available with Haswell and without a touchscreen, for 100 euro less. You’ll only get 4GB of RAM but if you want a basic, long-battery life Ultrabook in about 1.6KG, this is the cheapest option right now. We’ll be trying to get one in for test ASAP. We’ll also get the details up in the database for you and track 3d-party news, videos and reviews.

    Mmmh… U430 or Vaio Pro 13…?
    any chance to get the U430 tested as well? The higher resolution makes it much more interesting for me.
    Thanks, Philipp

    We have requested a test device. No word on if or when though. Tomorrow we should have XPS12 and Duo 13 in the house.

  4. Akerman says:

    great, thanks, I’ll stay tuned…

  5. Akerman says:

    this resolution thing got me confused. Up to now, the U430 was listed with 1600×900, now it appears with unthinkable 1366×768 on a 14″ display. Notebooksbilliger still lists it with 1600×900. Same price..?

    Looks pretty awesome! Great to hear it has an Intel wireless chip.

    I have the Yoga13 which has many dreaded horrible wifi problems and a substandard non WiDi compliant Realtek wireless card. Too bad, because it’s an otherwise wonderful machine.

    I’m personally ready for the Haswell XPS 12!

    Thanks Chippy!

    My XPS 12 has a Intel Centrino Wireless 6205 chip. I have WiFi problems. My Desktop with same chip does not have such bad wireless issues.

    Oh, and WiDi has only just become usable on Windows 8. And I got the system in late November.

    This really should be a no brainer approach to improving adult mother-son relationships.
    An individual who wants to head to a retirement
    community in Long Island ought to realize that this transfer also requires a spending budget.
    This makes adult-oriented tips for being an online student,
    which are posted on many a college website, so important.

    A few of the reasons that adults find the motivation to go back to college are detailed below.
    Antibiotics, for instance, do improve acne conditions, but they
    also interfere with the balance of healthy intestinal flora, making the problem cyclic.
