The Skinny: Lenovo's launching their IdeaPad Notebook line and they've got textured magnesium covers, 11.1-inch widescreen, SSD options, weigh 2.5 pounds, have a 1.3mp camera, touch sensitive multimedia controls and face recognition biometric logins. And Santa Rosa chips. Thinkpad heritage FTW.

The Catch:No ultraportable can be called great without an LED backlight.
