It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Lenovo’s plans to launch a low cost ultraportable PC. But now DigiTimes reports that the company is talking to manufacturers about building a PC that could hit shelves by the end of September.

The article doesn’t have any juicy tidbits like what kind of processor, display, or storage device the computer will use. But DigiTimes does claim that Compal, Wistron, and Pegatron are manufacturers that could be in the running to actually build the device.

    1. TrackPoint – very important. I don’t use mouse with my R31 and Z61t
      I want and I need a netbook with trackpoint.

  1. Dean M., I agree completely with your assessment of the thinkpads, including the price.

  2. I have a six year old IBM thinkpad that is still chugging along, and has taken quite the beating. My brother (now 14) has had it (so he was 8 when he got it) and he’s prone to breaking things. This laptop has been dropped, kicked, spilled on, you name it, and it’s still in great shape. It’s missing a few keys, but besides that it’s pretty much brand new. I know IBM build quality was top notch, and from what I know Lenovo has carried on that tradition. I would be very excited to see a netbook with the build quality of a Thinkpad. Unfortunately, this would probably carry on the less desired Thinkpad tradition: high price.
