Lenovo leverages Widgets in new Skylight Smartbook

The Washington Post (via PC World) takes a look at the Lenovo Skylight. The Skylight is a lightweight netbook that takes advantage of widgets to provide content.  From the article:

” The Skylight will gather media stored across formats and display it on the appropriate widget, re-populating the library as USB keys and the like are removed. If 10.1 inches isn’t enough screen real-estate, a mini-HDMI output port is included, for piping your media out onto a larger screen.”
