There's no denying that the Lenovo Skylight is one of the oddest mini-netbooks to hit the field in quite a while. DK.sg has gotten ahold of one of these bad boys, and they've posted their thoughts. The Skylight packs a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a 10.1” screen, HDMI-out, WiFi, and 3G. It weighs less than 907 grams.

DK.sg claims that the small size of the gadget does not compromise the keyboard and touchpad. He describes the keyboard as comfortable, and the touchpad as generous (although it has no physical buttons). The Skylight runs over a Linux-based OS, also called Skylight. There are several preloaded web gadgets, like Facebook and Twitter and Gmail and Amazon and dropbox. Lenovo is also sending out 2 GB of cloud storage with this device.

The Skylight multi-tasks well, but not with more than 9 or so apps open. A 4GB USB card attaches to the 'dash' of the notebook, and there's a 3G SIM slot. Without 3G on, the Skylight can manage 10 hours of battery. So far, the Skylight is looking like the ultra-light to beat.
