The Lenovo IdeaPad U150 CULV ultraportable last spotted strutting its patterned stuff in Japan last month has finally made it to the US, with pricing kicking off at $649.  The U150 packs a choice of 1.3GHz Pentium dual-core or Core 2 Duo processors, together with 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 250GB or 320GB of storage and an 11.6-inch 1,366 x 768 LED-backlit display.

You also get WiFi b/g as standard (WiFi b/g/n is on the higher-spec Core 2 Duo machine, at $749), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR together with gigabit ethernet.  OS is Windows 7 Home Premium and the standard battery is a 6-cell pack which Lenovo reckon is good for up to 7hrs runtime.  Ports include two USB 2.0, one USB/eSATA combo, both VGA and HDMI, and a 4-in-1 memory card reader.

The whole thing measures in at 11.4 x 7.5 x 0.5-1.35 inches and tips the scales at just 3.31lbs.  It's available to order now, but if you go via the Dealzon link below you can save a little more and bring the entry price down to around $550.
