has revealed a few details about its upcoming Skylight
smartbook and although it looks quite impressive, we're really not that
It packs an 1GHz Qualcomm ARM processor, 20GB of flash storage, as well
as 2GB of cloud storage and an 8GB miniSD card. The highlight is
definitely the high res 1280x720 10.1-inch screen and the compact size.
Apparently it weighs less than two pounds, or less than 900g which is
quite impressive. We also like the clamshell design, although it does
seem to have quite a big footprint.
The Skylight will offer a host of connectivity options, including WiFi,
integrated AT&T module and two USB ports in case you need more.
Lenovo promises upwards of 10 hours endurance which sounds realistic
considering it features an ARM CPU and solid state storage.
Its biggest shortcoming is the $499 price tag. Hopefully telcos will
subsidize it or offer it under attractive payment plans. Sadly, this
probably won't happen in smaller or less developed markets and paying
the $499 for any sort of smartbook/netbook is just too much.
