Lenovo has introduced a new Windows 8-enabled touchscreen laptop.
Unveiled at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the IdeaPad U310 Touch is a 13-inch Ultrabook boasting a ten-point touch panel and a 1,366 x 768 pixel screen, Pocket-Lint reports.
This display has been designed to be compatible with the new Windows 8 operating system and is responsive to multi-finger touch.
Users may be impressed with the power of the U310 Touch, especially as it includes a third-generation Intel Core i7 processor, in addition to 4GB of Ram and dedicated Nvidia graphics.
Pocket-Lint observed the machine is not too dissimilar to a mini Macbook Pro when it comes to aesthetics, adding the £779 price should not deter many people from snapping up the product.
The release comes after Lenovo recently announced production of its latest ThinkPad, which comes in the form of the X1 Carbon Touch and is optimised for Windows 8. It is hoped better performance and greater durability will result from the machine’s lightweight carbon fibre design and its improved grade.
