Sorry, Lenovo. We like your other stuff but not this, even if it does have sub-notebook dimensions - 12.5in screen, 17.8mm thickness - and comes with a choice of ultra-low voltage Intel Core i3 and i5 processors, according to ThinkPads.com, which posted the details first.

No word yet on pricing, but you'll get 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4GB of memory and 320GB of hard drive space, plus Ethernet, HDMI, VGA and a pair of USB ports. ®
