In Beijing Intel showed off a new notebook design for ladies. The "metro notebook" is very thin, ultra-light and designed to be carried over the shoulder like a purse.

The 0.7" thick device weighs only 1kg and features a secondary display on the outside to get really fast info updates, The Reg reports:
The Core 2 Duo-based machine's small screen is a colour non-volatile e-ink display that continues to show content - email, calendar entries, eBooks, etc - even when the power's cut. The e-ink screen is mounted on a leather wrap-around cover which connects to the laptop through a dock connector that's also capable of hosting USB traffic.

The unit's primarily designed for entirely wireless communications with reconfigurable antennae able to switch between the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and WiMAX links the laptop's envisaged to maintain.
Another interesting feature will be a connection-less charging pad, this will allow users to charge compatible phones and PDAs just by placing them on the notebook.
