Gigabyte Q2005 netbook receives dual-core processor

Gigabyte’s latest Q2005 netbook will be powered by a dual-core Intel N550 processor, where we do think it is capable of delivering a decent level of performance although the screen’s resolution leaves much to be desired at 1024 x 600.  which is slowly become sub par in the 10.1-inch world. For some the lack of 1366 x 768 might be a deal breaker, but if you can get past that […]


Acer Aspire One E100 debuts with dual booting capability

Choice is always something we love having – if not, your local Burger King or McDonald’s menu would not have so many menu items, would they? Acer knows that some computer users are also equally fickle minded, and hence have come up with the Aspire One E100 netbook which is capable of booting into either Windows or Android – giving you the best of both worlds, although we believe that […]


Acer Aspire One AO522 begins to ship

Want to settle for something other than your usual Intel Atom fare? Well, there is always AMD as another viable replacement, so it makes perfect sense if Acer decided to fit in the AMD Fusion processor into their Aspire One AO522 netbook which by the way, was “upgraded” from pre-order status from several weeks ago to “shipping” at Amazon.com. Prices start from an extremely pocket friendly $329.99, where the black […]

NEC Android notebook spotted

[CES 2011] NEC continues their march on the Android bandwagon with this notebook (which frankly, in our opinion, seems to be more of a netbook than anything else). This notebook will obviously be powered by the Android operating system alongside NVIDIA’s Tegra processor – thus guaranteeing its performance when it comes to graphics. Just in case the 7” WVGA LCD touchscreen display is not good enough for you, there is […]


CTL 2go Classmate PC E11 rugged netbook introduced

CTL, the name behind the super affordable notebook for students in developing countries, has just introduced yet another notebook. As you know by now, young children who do not know any better could have fingers that are of a larger destructive force than that of a typhoon (figuratively speaking, of course), so passing them sensitive electronics to simply play around with isn’t exactly the best idea. Well, CTL’s latest release, […]


HP goes all businesslike with Mini 1103 netbook

The netbook isn’t normally touted to be a business-centric device, as it is meant to be more of a highly portable computing device that isn’t able to handle all the heavy duty computing tasks. Well, HP intends to go against the grain with their latest Mini 1103 netbook – unlike what its name might suggest, the Mini 1103 sports a 10.1-inch, 1024 x 600 LED-backlit display, accompanied by a keyboard […]


LG Launches X170 Dual-core Netbook

There aren’t too many dual-core netbooks out there but LG has just introduced its X170 netbook over in Korea. While there isn’t any mention if the netbook will ever be available in the US, it’s worth noting that it offers users the option of purchasing it with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 singe core processor or a 1.5GHz Atom N550 dual-core processor, not to mention a choice between a 1366 […]


Asus Lamborghini Eee PC VX6 ships at long last

Normally, an Eee PC branding would mean a netbook, and we all know that netbooks aren’t good for anything else apart from opening up a couple of work documents with one browser (or two) running in the background, otherwise the poor little machine is going to start sputtering all over as it just lacks the processing muscle to handle all the additional tasks. Asus must have thought that their 12.1-inch […]


MSI Wind U135DX Crystal is on its way

Netbooks as a fashion statement? Perhaps, as anything tech these days seem to be able to “bling up” by throwing in a few diamonds here and there. Well, the MSI Wind U135DX Crystal is pretty much similar in terms of specifications compared to other Wind U135 netbooks, although the lid comes with more glittery stuff – making this more the domain of artistic folks instead of others who opt for […]


Acer Aspire One Happy gets Android OS

Looks like the Android operating system from Google is not limited to just smartphones, but netbooks would come under their “jurisdiction” as well if you take the Acer Aspire One Happy into consideration. At least, for those living across the Atlantic, you no longer have to decide between Linux or Windows to get your little netbook going, since the brightly colored Happy (Candy Pink, Lavender Purple, Lime Green and Hawaii […]

Acer Aspire One Happy colored to depict joy

BMW claims you can now buy joy – as long as you purchase a signature kidney-shaped grill fitted vehicle from them. Well, Acer plays with another feeling, which is that of being happy in the form of their 10-inch Acer Aspire One Happy which will come in bright pastel colors with the possibility of an HD video decoder. While it cannot be purchased in the US just yet, a handful […]


MSI Wind U160 to get dual core Atom N550 update

MSI has decided to pump up its Wind U160 netbook by throwing in a dual core Atom N550 update to complement its chassis overhaul earlier this year. This processor refresh will definitely let the Wind U160 have more processing muscle to keep up with the rest of the competition, although it will still carry the same 6-cell battery. Would you be willing to fork out money for a slightly faster […]
