Today's available gadgets covers everything from speakers to smartphones. iHome's high-end iPod and iPhone dock is up for grabs, along with a new laptop from Lenovo. The HTC Touch Pro2 is out as well, but watch out for the price.

• iHome's iP1 iPod and iPhone speaker dock we saw back in May started shipping yesterday, and it's certainly a far cry from the clock radio docks that the company is known for. The iP1 is iHome's first to use Bongiovi Acoustics' Digital Power Station audio enhancement, although the feature can be switched off if you wish. The speakers have a total output of 100w from two 4" woofers and 1" tweeters. On the video side, the dock sports both composite and component outputs. The iP1's lucite panel looks great, and the specs make it seem like a solid performer on paper. As with any speaker system, though, it's best to try before you buy. Available now for $299.

• Lenovo's IdeaPad U450p is up for order as of today. The light-but-not-quite-ultralight 14" laptop packs an anti-glare LED-backlit LCD and an Intel ULV processor into a swanky brushed metallic body. The computer is available today starting at $799, but don't expect it to be waiting on your doorstep next week. Lenovo's pegged the estimated shipping date for mid-September. [Lenovo via Engadget]


• We posted about this earlier today, but for anyone that missed the notice, here's a reminder that the HTC Touch Pro2 is now available on T-Mobile. John's review goes over all the details, and it's definitely worth a read if you're thinking about grabbing one. Just be sure that HTC's latest has what you need, because the $349 asking price isn't easy to swallow. [T-Mobile]
