New IdeaPad Laptops Scheduled to Be Released This Fall

Lenovo's IdeaPad product lineup has offered great mobile computing solutions for the mainstream consumer for many years.  This category of laptops fits smack in the middle between the value lineup found in the Essential laptop family and the ThinkPad lineup which caters more to working professionals.

Soon Lenovo will be revamping a handful of series within the IdeaPad family.  Coming in September, it has been annouced that the U, Y and Z Series are set to see new models.  

For those that aren't familiar with these series, the U Series is made up of super-slim designer notebooks and ultrabooks.  The Y Series includes laptops that are put together to handle serious entertainment use.  The Z Series is a toned down version of the Y Series, and provides a more affordable laptop solution but still having a few entertainment features.

The timing of these product releases will roughly coincide with the debut of the next iteration of Windows.  Microsoft has scheduled Windows 8 to be released on October 26, 2012.

Although some of these notebooks will be available soon with Windows 7, consumers will have to wait a little while for the others since these new PCs are designed with Windows 8 in mind. The IdeaPad U510 will be available in September 2012 starting at $679 in the US. The IdeaPad Y400 and Y500 will be available in October 2012 starting at $649. The IdeaPad Z400 will be available in November 2012 starting at $549. The IdeaPad Z500 will be available in September 2012 starting at $549….
