Update on Lenovo Xiang Olympic Notebook

Lenovo Olympic Xiang Notebook A bit more information has come out – Crave (CNET)has leaked a few more details about the Lenovo Olympic Notebook, aka the “Lenovo Xiang“. It’s a promotional ultraportable for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. Right now, as far as we know, it could be limited only to the Chinese market.

We already know that it has:
– 3x USB 2.0
– 1x IEEE 1394 Firewire port
– ExpressCard slot
– Flash media card slot
– VGA out, Microphone-in, Microphone-out
– No optical drive

The new information:
– 12.1” widescreen
– A Low Voltage 1.66 GHz Core Duo processor from Intel.

The processor could very well be the Intel Core Duo LV L2400 which is a Low Voltage CPU clocking in at 1.66GHz. The display could be an LED-backlit display, because of its thinness.

It doesn’t appear to match the Lenovo ThinkPad X61 or X61s, although it is incredibly thin and would probably be very lightweight – the two laptops do not have optical drives, however the Lenovo Xiang has a different placement for the CPU fan/vent and video out than the ThinkPad X61/X61s.

The concept could very well be a limited edition ultraportable, similar to Lenovo’s ThinkPad Reserve.
