Currently, the mass amount of small computer users own netbooks and love what they do for them, yet smartbooks are also trying to make their way into the market. One upcoming smartbook, known currently as the Skylight, will be produced by Lenovo and feature a 1GHz Qualcomm snapdragon processor, which can also be found in some smartphones, along with a propreitary operating system and a high-definition display that will come in at 10-inches. Sadly, the price for the device so far is set at $499, which makes it much more expensive than other netbook offers, bringing up the question whether it will be able to adapt to the current market situation. Though Lenovo is claiming around ten hours of battery life, which is quite good for having such a nice display, the company will ship a subsidized version with AT&T.
