The 2557M is seen in the new base model macbook airs.. Not impossible to handle the heat!

The problem is Notebook manufacturers don't usually get the airflow right, so even after you've been idling or doing light work after a high load, it will take like forever for it to cool down.

And if you want to play some games on the go, it will most surely get pretty hot.

The GPU in AMD's C-50, while gaming, can reach more than 80.º C. How about that for a 9w TDP APU ?

If they don't take care of the airflow and have a proper heatsink in there, it will be a poor experience.

And no, from what I've read with the E-350 (18w), the battery won't last as much as on a netbook, unlike Intel (17w) likes to mention. It's just not possible; the TDP is twice as high.

Any news of something along the lines of a macbook air from say, Lenovo, coming within the next month?

I don't like thin notebooks, they tend to be very hot, and that's a big turn off for me!

According to specs, it's slightly more powerful for a cheaper price.

Only major difference being windows/osx.


edit: From the highest end model MBA, it seems like the Lenovo has it beat in everything except an SSD, and i5 v i3, although the i3 is clocked higher.

It's not in line with the macbook air's power?

How so? (Aside from the lack of an SSD)

Its actually quite a bit more powerful than the macbook air, I was just thinking that if the base macbook air has a 1.7GHz i5 and 2GB of RAM for $1000 you could get a similar non apple laptop for $700. I don't need more power but rather similar power for a lower price.

How much are these "Ultra books"?
