Intel's Metro Notebook Doubles as a Portable Battery

Intel has lifted the veil on a conceptual laptop dubbed the Metro Notebook. Aside from being under an inch thick, the notebook will come with a cordless charging pad that'll let you juice up any of your gadgets just by placing them on the notebook.

The notebook is meant to be worn like a messenger bag and has an external e-ink display that gives you quick access to email and calendar info. Inside sits a hefty Core 2 Duo CPU along with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and WiMax radios. Now if only they could get all ultraportables this slim.
