Lenovo announced the IdeaPad U260, the world’s first 12.5-inch ultraportable consumer laptop, giving users a 16:9 widescreen dimension in a 12-inch form factor for the first time. This latest addition to the IdeaPad U Series is all about luxury featuring a sleek, minimalistic design that includes a magnesium-aluminum alloy real metal cover, leather-patterned palm rest and glass touchpad.

The IdeaPad U260 is high fashion in laptop form. Designed for consumers who enjoy a sophisticated sense of style, the U260 highlights premium details and craftsmanship that can be touched. Inspired by the silhouette of a classic leather-bound journal, the U260 exudes elegance with a “U” shaped outline and a specially engineered one-piece magnesium-aluminum alloy frame, making it stronger yet thinner and lighter. The exterior cover, which boasts a one-piece design without any breaks in the pattern, is made possible by the latest insert- molding injection technology.
