The Lenovo USB Power Hub, a 65W laptop AC power adapter with a 4-port powered USB hub, is also available now for $74.99, according to a company statement.

The laptop, which offers the choice of Intel Core/Pentium or AMD Vision Pro Athlon ultra low voltage processors, also boasts up to seven hours of battery life and connection to wireless hot spots through WiFi or roaming using optional 3G or 4G/WiMAX3 with Qualcomm Gobi technology.
