Lenovo is apparently getting ready to add a new laptop to its lineup in the form of the 13.3-inch Lenovo M30.
All signs point to a portable and reasonably priced notebook, offering 5 hours of battery life and weighing 3.9 pounds. The new Lenovo M30 also packs an Intel Haswell processor under the hood.
The folks over at German site Mobile Geeks were the first ones to spot the new laptop on Lenovo's Swedish website. It remains unclear at this point whether the Lenovo M30 will see a wide global debut and launch in the U.S. as well.
The specs listed for the Lenovo M30 suggest that it is not a high-end laptop, but will instead launch as a mid-range offering for consumers who need a reasonably priced, portable notebook. Lenovo itself touts the M30 as an "affordable 13.3-inch business laptop."
The Lenovo M30's specs include an Intel Core i3-4010U processor, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, and 8GB of solid state cache. The 13.3-inch display has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Connectivity options include 1 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, HDMI, as well as an SD card slot. On the software side, the notebook runs Windows 8.1.
One of the most notable aspects of this Lenovo M30 is its interior design, which is silver, reminiscent of the Lenovo M5400 business laptop. The M30 further comes with an AccuType keyboard with 1.8mm keystroke build, which should provide a comfortable typing experience.
As expected from a mid-range offering, the Lenovo M30 doesn't boast a touch-enabled display with high resolution, nor a backlit keyboard or other high-end features. Although it sounds quite portable, it remains to be seen whether Lenovo will market its new M30 as a notebook or an ultrabook. The company does note, however, that the M30 is "the perfect solution for on-the-go business productivity."
The company has yet to announce exact launch dates for the new Lenovo M30, or mention which countries will get to sell the notebook. Lenovo has not provided any pricing details yet either, but Mobile Geeks claims that a German retailer has listed a price tag just above 500 Euros and a May 30 launch date for the laptop. If it makes it to the U.S. as well, the Lenovo M30 could retail for roughly $500.
