Lenovo is offering their Lenovo U31 Laptop (Model 80M500E4US) for a low price of just $499.99. Apply their eCoupon code USPU34US225 to drop $50 off that already low mark, and pay just $449.99. Shipping is free and you will not find this discount at their site.
This version of the U31 comes with a better display, processor, and memory than you would typically find in a brand name laptop from another maker or seller.
A full 1080p display with 13.3″ of LED back-lit viewing space and anti-glare coating, which is especially useful for when you’re working in a well-lit environment, is a great start. Intel 5500 HD Graphics make good use of that screen.
A speedy Broadwell version i3-5005U processor from Intel makes for smooth processing of information and moves swiftly through apps and video.
8GB of DDR3L 1600 MHz, PC3L-12800 memory makes multi-tasking fast and easy. A hard disk drive with 500GB of storage space (remember, you’re operating system and other software on board uses up some of that space) is enough for most folks to store their essential files.
You don’t have to upgrade to the latest OS from Microsoft, as Windows 10 is already installed when it arrives. The U31 weighs a little over 3 pounds and measures roughly 3/4 inches high when it’s closed. Dolby Home Theater decoding makes for better than average sound which flows through a pair of 1.5 watt speakers.
Connectivity options include HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0, and a pair of 3.0 version UBS ports, along with RJ45 and a standard USB 2.0 port.
