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 […]

Asus Eee PC 1015PN netbook is available for pre-order
The Asus Eee PC 1015PN 10-inch netbook is now available for pre-order, so go place one today if you’re hoping to get some dual core Intel Atom N550 processor action alongside a second generation NVIDIA ION graphics chipset underneath the hood. It will be going for $429 in black, white, blue, or red colors, featuring 1GB RAM, a 250GB hard drive, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0 support to keep up with […]

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 […]

NEC goes dual core with new netbooks
NEC wants to bring the latest and the greatest with a couple of new netbooks primed to hit the Japanese market, where one of them will rely on the new dual core Intel Atom N550 processor, while the other will pack in less processing muscle courtesy of a single core processor. The NEC LaVie Light BL550 won’t shirk from processing responsibilities since it will run on the 1.5GHz Atom N550 […]

AMD demonstrate its Zacate low-power processor
Photo courtesy of AnandTechAMD has made a tradition of holding a “get together” media event while the Intel Developer Conference is in full swing. Today, they have demonstrated their Zacate CPU, a direct competitor for Intel’s ATOM. That means Netbooks, and possibly Tablets. So, what’s so cool about Zacate? Well, the idea is that it’s a low-power (9W-18W) chip that comes with an integrated graphics that outperforms Intel’s current graphics […]

Acer Aspire One Happy drops model numbers
Looks like Acer has finally realized that having a slew of alphanumeric model numbers for their Aspire One range of netbooks might just get a tad too confusing after a while, which is why we’re ecstatic that the latest model is known as the Acer Aspire One Happy. Basically, it doesn’t seem as though it is new, since this is more or less a rebranded Aspire One D255 that comes […]

Packard Bell Dot SE netbook arrives in Europe
Since Acer owns Packard Bell, don’t be surprised that the Packard Bell Dot SE which will arrive in Europe closely resembles the recently unveiled Acer Aspire One D255 netbook. When it comes down to specifications, everything is more or less identical – case in point, a 10-inch display, an Intel Atom N550 1.5GHz dual core processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory (why not DDR3, we wonder), a 250GB hard drive, and […]

Going for $399 a pop in a quartet of color choices (red, black, aquamarine and sandstone), they will all share the same innards regardless of its exterior color. We’re […]

HP Mini 5103 to come thanks to HP service manual
A netbook used to be a casual computing device, but it seems that the market has evolved to break down the netbook market into further segments such as a luxury class as well as the business crowd. The HP Mini 5103 is one such model which falls under the latter, where it will closely resemble its predecessors by featuring an aluminum and magnesium alloy, all-metal case. Other features include a […]

Asus netbook ambitions scaled down with iPad's success
Since the iPad was released, it has certainly performed extremely well on the sales front, and it is confirmed that the pie did not get bigger for everyone, much to Asus’s chagrin as they have lowered their netbook shipment estimates for the summer to between 7 and 8 million Eee PCs shipped, despite the period being the usual peak for Eee PC sales. This has indirectly proved the cannibalization of […]

Augen Genbook 74 is an Android-powered netbook
We’ve heard of the Augen tablet coming from Kmart, and here is news on another device from the folks at Augen – the Genbook 74, which is a $99 device, making it one of the cheapest netbooks around at the moment. It will also be sold at Kmart, offering cookie cutter specifications that seem to hail from three years ago. We’re talking about a relatively tiny 7″ display, a 400MHz […]

Sony Vaio P clone heading to the US
While we’ve seen our fair share of Vaio P clones in the past, it is safe to say that most of them do not make it to the US, but there is an exception to the rule this time round with the Pocket Sony Style L80 Mini Laptop. Similar to the actual Vaio P, this model comes in a compact design that lacks a touchpad right below the keyboard, where […]

Gateway NS series of notebooks to carry Intel Core i-Series processors
Gateway’s NS series of notebooks will come with Intel’s Core i-Series processors later this month, where the displays will come in varying sizes which range from 11.6″ to 15.6″, where they will run on Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 mobile processors. The smallest among them would be what you see above, the Gateway NS10 that will sport an 11.6″ display at 1,366 x 768 resolution, offering up to […]

Samsung N230 Slim netbook now official
Samsung’s N230 Slim netbook has just gone official, where this netbook remains true to its name by measuring a mere 2.3cm in thickness. Tipping the scales at a mere 1.2kg, one of the reasons why it looks slim is due to an optical illusion – Samsung’s engineers decided to place its hinges in the rear, hence making it pleasing to look at from many angles. While a 7 hour battery […]
