Lenovo Olympic Notebook
Lenovo today gave an early look at a special notebook designed to commemorate Beijing's hosting of the 2008 Olympics. Known as the Xiang based on the 110-meter hurdle gold medal winner of the same name from the 2004 Athens event, the portable reflects the "Cloud of Promise" philosophy behind the computer builder's design for the official Olympic torch: the outer shell is covered in China's signature red, while both the inside and outside are decorated with swirling clouds.
Hardware details are unknown, but the system is expected to be one of Lenovo's mainstream F30 or F40 Chinese models rather than the high-end ThinkPad. Its availability will probably be confined to the Chinese mainland but hasn't been confirmed. [via Coolest-Gadgets]
