The Sony VAIO Z Series coming out this year is the most powerful 13 inch laptop we have seen yet. It features an array of quad SSD hard drives in a Raid-0 configuration, which means your data can read/write parallelly, 6.2X faster than standard laptop drives. The Intel Core i7-620M processor and the NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 330M GPU are another rarity among 13 inchers. This tiny powerhouse is not the lightest 13 inch on the market (at just over 3 lbs) but it could be one of the fastest. Click here for more photos and tech specs.

The ThinkPad W700ds is the successor of the ThinkPad W700, only with another screen. The notebook itself features a WACOM digitizer built-in but more importantly it incorporates a secondary 10.6in LCD which works out really well for a tools and pallets.
You have a choice of Intel Core 2 Quad processors and NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M GPU. With a max of 8 GB of RAM and 960 GB of SSD/HDD. The primary 17-inch screen is supposedly the brightest on the market. The W700ds starts at $3,600, and weighs 11 pounds. Start saving for this now because it will ship in January. (Unless the date shifts, as that is known to happen.)

Don’t get me wrong… You can put together some awesome laptop system, they will run games smoothly, and your programs will fire up very fast. But if you are like me and spent the past week doing some serious graphic designing, you may be interested in a laptop that has more than power to offer. Lenovo’s ThinkPad W700 notebook notebook intended for graphic design, photography, and CAD professionals. It features: a built-in Wacom digitizer, WUXGA screen with 400 nit brightness, auto color-calibration sensor, 3.0 GHz Core 2 Extreme quad core processor, up to 8GB DDR3 RAM, 1GB NVIDIA Quadro FX 3700M graphics and dual HDD Bays configurable in RAID 0 or RAID 1. The whole package starts at $3,000, but with options like BD-ROM and SSD you can expect to pay a lot more. More pictures and press release.

Now it seems Asus will release their 8.9in version of the Eee laptop a month earlier than originally planned. The larger Eee is now set to be released in May instead of June. Unfortunately the slight change in releasing the notebook early will mean that Intel’s new Atom processor originally slated for the 8.9in Eee will not be used. However all other specs remain the same with both XP and linux version available, as well as various sizes of SSD’s up to 12gb. The price for the new 8.9in Eee is expected to start at $499

Wireless USB is just starting to take off with many companies (such as Dell) offering integrated WUSB capabilities into their new laptops. However not everyone is so lucky to have a wireless USB receiver built-in. IOGear has solved this problem with their new CardBus wireless USB receiver. The card itself will use the rarely occupied CarBus slot on laptops, without having to worry about another USB dongle. Unfortunately price and availability are currently unknown. (Source)
