Lenovo raises IdeaPad A1 price to $229

A3

You might be thinking that the new $229 price tag for the Lenovo IdeaPad A1 is lower than the one we brought you at the beginning of September, the $249 one. Well, unfortunately, Lenovo had another, cheaper model of the A1 that was destined for markets outside of the US, and that one started at a mere $199. The only difference between the two is the amount of storage; while the US model has 16GB of storage, the cheaper variant has a paltry 2GB.

That justified the low price of $199, but unfortunately, Lenovo had to raise it. The A1 starts at $229 now, which is a bit more expensive than some of its competition, namely the Kindle Fire

Unfortunately, there are no details as to why Lenovo decided to raise the price. Just know that the 16GB (US) model still starts at $249, but that's obviously subject to change at some point. 

Have any of you purchased the IdeaPad A1? If you did, it's probably a good thing that you ordered it sooner than later.
