Lenovo have a great thing going with their concept of the ultra-portable laptop using a 12.5" screen, but they need to provide an option that actually has some muscle to justify the term laptop by making it capable of productivity computing.

Please Lenovo, be a dear, and stick a 35W AMD A-series Fusion APU in one of these 12.5" portables, and show people what difference 400 DX11 shaders can make!

I wouldn't worry about no memory card reader, I use CF cards and haven't found a portable that supports these. What have laptop manufacturers got against CF?

@ericinoz:
While CF used to be the professional choice, these days it's probably fair to say that the vast majority of consumers use SD (as do nearly all devices, high end cameras included). I think the main problem with CF in regard to laptops was simply one of size, combined with its more limited market.

@Jedibeeftrix:
Yep, we're defo loving the 12.5in form factor. Hopefully there'll be a U260 refresh with a little more connectivity and muscle under the hood.
