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.
