Manufacturer’s Description

IdeaPad's stylish design makes these laptops ones to see and be seen with. No two people are the same. We kept that in mind when we designed the first IdeaPad laptops. Fact is, we wanted to give you stylish options for expressing yourself. You may look at a tribal tattoo pattern and see yourself. Or maybe delicate scroll work or a sleek metallic finish is more your speed. Choose carefully - you will get noticed.
