Just about a year ago we took a look at Lenovo’s Y570 15.6-inch laptop and today we have its successor the Y580. Designed to be an all-around system or even a desktop replacement that can handle HD video, gaming, and other intensive tasks the Y580 features NVIDIA GTX660M graphics, an mSATA solid state drive for fast boot times and application load times, a very fast Intel Core i7-3610QM processor, 8GB of DDR3 and USB 3.0 support. For those who hate the typical dull speakers on laptops Lenovo has outfitted the Y580 with premium JBL speakers with support for Dolby Home Theater v4. Finally just for looks Lenovo has added a backlit keyboard that not only looks cool, but allows you to work at night with ease. Starting at just $849 the Y580 is still very affordable. Is this the laptop for you? Read on as we put it to the test!
Cyberpower Inc., a global manufacturer of custom gaming computers, today announced its Fang Taipan, the most customizable gaming laptop with twin NVIDIA GPUS, 3rd Generation Intel Core Processors and enough memory and add-ons to make the most demanding games and applications sizzle.

So the next big concern coming down the aisle for Ultrabooks may be simpler than CPU, RAM, hard-drives, and networking, it will concern what material to use. It seems much of the aluminum chassis needed to produce the popular magnesium-aluminum alloy for these devices is in short supply (with Apple having formed rock solid alliances with the two major alloy vendors) and manufacturers like Acer, Asus and HP are considering using fiberglass. Acer has already announced plans for a 15-inch fiberglass-encased notepad in 2012.
