For those of you who don’t know, Gordon and I were both very excited when we first heard about wireless USB. Today, therefore, is a good day for the both of us, because we are finally able to get our hands on products that are certified to support the new standard natively - without the need for a hub. Swiftly following up the launch of Belkin’s wireless USB hub is the announcement that Dell and Lenovo will be offering notebooks that support peripherals conforming to the standard.

From Dell is the Inspiron 1720, which specs up rather well with the usual range of Core 2 Duos, 17in 1,440 x 900 or 1,920 x 1,200 screen, up to 4GB RAM and, at the top of the range, a 256MB nVidia 8600M GT. You can even add in a Blu-ray drive for around an (actually quite reasonable) extra £380. The Lenovo T61 offers a similar set of features, but is more geared towards business, containing as it does a Quadro NVS 140M from nVidia, designed for graphic design rather than games. The Dell will cost you anywhere from £900 upwards depending on configuration, while the Lenovo offers different options all around the £1500 mark. Expect the the WUSB option included soon on both sites.
