Olympics laptop goes for a trial heat

Lenovo releases some specs, finally.

Tracing Gadget

Considering how quickly Lenovo's Olympics laptop came out--it was shown just one day after its first public mention--the company has taken a fairly long time to release any details.

But Electronista says the "Xiang" notebook, which bears the distinctive "Cloud of Promise" design created specifically for the 2008 Beijing Games, has made an appearance at a Southeast Asian trade show and sported a 12-inch widescreen, a 1.66 GHz Core Duo processor, a multi-card reader and three USB ports, among other features.

Unfortunately, the most important specs--where and when we can get one, and for how much--remain unknown. We certainly hope we won't end up looking for one on eBay, blended or otherwise.
