Lenovo Skylight Smartbook

The breathtakingly thin, beautifully rounded Skylight looks like it’s on loan from the future. This device, designed to turn on instantly and provide always-on AT&T 3G connectivity, measures only 0.7 inches thick and weighs under 2 pounds. Beneath its attractive exterior lies something completely new: a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and flash memory run Lenovo’s Linux-based Skylight OS, which allows you to easily surf the Web, access social networking, send e-mail, and edit photos through an attractive and simple widget-based interface. Available later this spring for $499 (and presumably cheaper with a two-year contract), this smartbook features a 10-inch display, a full-size keyboard, and up to 10 hours of battery life.
