Alienware M11x Core i3, i5 and i7 update due June

We weren't exactly disappointed by the Alienware M11x gaming ultraportable's performance when we reviewed it a few months back, but nor would we turn our noses up at a speed boost should Dell be so kind.  As the rumors suggested, Dell are apparently planning to slot Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs into the 11.6-inch notebook, and according to Pearce Clune, Head of Consumer Operations for Middle East, Africa and Turkey, we can expect it next month.

Lenovo IdeaPad U160, U460 & U460s intro latest Core i3/i5/i7 ULV CPUs

The IdeaPad Z series aren't the only mainstream notebooks Lenovo have to announce this morning; the company has also taken the wraps off of the new Lenovo IdeaPad U series.  Admittedly the new IdeaPad U160, U460 and U460s aren't quite as interesting as the U1 Hybrid, but the 11.6-inch U160 and 14-inch U460 and U460s do slide in at under an inch in thickness while still packing Intel's new Core and Core ULV low-power processors.
