A new Lenovo laptop was spotted at a recent company event in Beijing prior to any formal introduction. According to those present, the IdeaPad Z460
features a 14-inch 1366x768 display, a 2.13GHz Intel Core i3-330M processor, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, a 320GB hard drive, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, and Windows 7 Home Basic. That's about all the information currently available, but an official statement and further details are imminent.
Meanwhile, Sony teased its new VAIO "Ultra Mobile" notebook today in Japan
. Although no significant clues were given about what to expect, a "proven" Engadget tipster
says it's a new VAIO P, which jibes with FCC listings uncovered earlier this year. The source also said the orange paper clip in the image below actually represents a side shot of the laptop.
The existing P-series device
costs a smooth $1,000 and features an 8-inch 1600x768 LED display, an Intel Atom and GMA 500, 2GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD, Verizon Mobile Broadband, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, two USB ports, a webcam, and Windows 7 Home Premium.
