Having teased us mercilessly back in July with the banner for their IdeaPad U450p, Lenovo have finally put the 14-inch CULV ultraportable up for sale.  Kicking off from $799, the U450p has a choice of Intel 1.3GHz Pentium SU2700 or 1.4GHz Core 2 Solo SU3500 processors and up to 4GB of DDR3 memory.

There’s also up to 320GB of 5,400rpm HDD storage, an integrated DVD burner, Intel X4500 graphics and a 1,366 x 768 AntiGlare display.  Connectivity includes a choice of WiFi b/g/n or b/g, ethernet, VGA, HDMI, three USB ports and audio in/out.

The standard battery is a 6-cell pack, though we’re not sure what sort of runtime you could expect from that yet.  Shipping is expected to begin “in more than 4 weeks” so there’s some wait, but if you’ve between $799 and $899 burning a hole in your pocket and an insatiable demand for a Lenovo CULV ultraportable then the IdeaPad U450p could be for you.
