Only $30 to upgrade to the i5? Is that redonkulously cheap, or am I on something?

That most likely means the i3 is redonkulously expensive, rather than the i5 being redonkulously cheap.

Are there any other comparable 13" sandy bridge laptops coming out soon? Seems like all of Lenovo's are 12.5" or 14". Plus I expect them to be more expensive?

@ Guest - Sony has the Vaio S starting at $1000. Then if you spend a little more there's the 12.5-inch ThinkPad X220 we recently reviewed from Lenovo starting at around $1300 and the Samsung 9 Series for $1650.

We'll have an update to our Laptop guide posted by the end of the week.
