Today Lenovo has proved that they know how to design a kick-ass looking smartbook better than anyone else in the business. (Netbooked) Their new Skylight Smartbook was just announced at CES 2010. A few bloggers have had chances to play with it, and there are now images and a full spec list available.
The Skylight has a 10.1" 1280 x 720 HD display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 1 GHz ARM II processor, and sports a healthy 512 MB of RAM. Storage is 20 GB, 8 GB of flash, an 8 GB mini-SD card, and 2 GB of online storage. There's a 1.3 MP webcam for video conferencing, the batteries last 10 hours on a charge, and this thing has WiFi and 3G WWAN. It has mono speakers with stereo out and the OS is some special version of Linux. Price seems to be the Skylight's one downside. While an average netbook will run you $300 or so, this thing is priced at $499. Ouch. With any luck, we'll see this thing subsidized by a carrier when it launches in April.
