Olympic laptops headed for auction

But not till February next year.

Tech Digest

There's good news and bad news if you've been dying to get one of those "Cloud of Promise" laptops commemorating the Beijing Olympics, bearing the unique design created for the Olympic torch.

The good news is that some of them will be available through charity auctions benefiting the Lenovo Hope Fund, which is dedicated to sports for children, and many will be autographed by athletes. The bad news is that they won't go on sale until February 8 next year, six months before the summer games begin, according to Tech Digest.

But if you simply can't wait to get an official Olympics computer, there's always Lenovo's special desktop editions. On second thought--no.
