I was browsing through various netbook offers this morning, something affiliates like myself have to do, when the U450 minilaptop caught my eye. A Intel Dual Core netbook? Indeed! On top of the dual core processor there’s 3GB installed RAM and up to 8GB max and a 250GB Hard Drive. There’s also a 1.3mp camera and HD quality sound. It has a special shock protection system, and enhanced features like a light sensor to automatically adjust screen brightness and facial recognition log-on technology. The battery goes up to 6 hours and the netbook is only 1.1 inches thick and weighs under 5 pounds. It comes with Windows 7 and has a card reader and plenty of USB connectors. The larger screen offers an extra 4 inches above most netbooks without losing portability. Definitely a beautiful, high quality, premium netbook.

Here are the Lenovo U450 specs:
