    According to Gizmodo, Lenovo will be adding some new laptops to the X series, namely the X200, X400 and X500. As with the X300, and the whole X series for that matter, these new laptops will be focused on portability. They will come with a 12-inch, 14.1-inch or 15.4-inch screen, respectively, and will all be armed with Intel's latest 45nm Penryn processors. Other features include HSDPA and EVDO, 25% improved battery life, as well as 6MB L2 cache.

    Lenovo's R, T, and W series should also receive a few updates, more about that after the jump.

    R-Series (refreshed)
    This line will continue representing the entry level. We're light on specs, but we know it will include the R400 (5.1lbs) and R500 (6.4lbs). Expect these to be refreshed in July 2008.

    T-Series (refreshed)
    This line will continue to represent the mid-range, featuring 256 or 512MB ATI HD3650 discreet graphics that can be turned off to conserve battery life. We don't have sizes, but the T400 will weight 4.3lbs and the T500 will clock in at 5.8lbs. Shipping starts June 3rd, 2008.

    W-Series (brand new)
    The W-Series is a completely new line. Where the "W" used to stand for "Widescreen," now it stands for "workstation replacement." Described to us as less bulky than similar machines from Dell, the 15-inch W900 will feature the same discreet graphics as the T-Series. A 17-inch version is in the works for the future.

    And here's the good stuff:

    Many or All Models Will Have:
    • 6MB of L2 cache
    • Turbo Memory option (think Ready Boost, up to 2GB)
    • Blu-ray drive option
    • Two PCI Express Slots
    • 1.6GHz DDR3 RAM
    • LED Backlighting (excludes R Series)
    • HSDPA and EVDO (Lenovo claims to have no deals with Sprint)
    • 9 cell batteries (same form factor as former 6-cell, 25% more life)
    • GPS, WiMAX, and wireless USB are scattered through models
    • The x300's solid state hard drive option (excludes W)

    4:3 screen = a less wide laptop so it's more portable. Which is the way a laptop should be.

    That's just something people with old-ass laptops say to make themselves feel better.

    An EEEPC is 16x10. I highly doubt you have a more portable laptop than one of those pups.
    You're right! Those actually are 16:10 widescreen. At a quick glance, they looked to me like they were 4:3, but, I checked the dimensions using Fireworks.
