We’ve all seen small laptops, and we’ve also seen mini-laptops now referred to as netbooks. Now let’s take a look at a mini-netbook! IMOVIO has released the iKIT, a tiny pocket-sized netbook which dimensions are 9.5cm by 6.5cm and a petite 15.5mm high. The laptop is just as portable as modern-day cell phones.
Recently, Alienware released their portable monster, the M17, easily topping the charts as the best laptop around. However, a few days ago, custom gaming PC builder CyberPower introduced a rival to the M1. The name of the PC is the Gamer Xtreme M1, and this gaming system can stand up to most Alienware machines that have been released.
ASUS is new to the notebook and desktop PC market. They have long been known for making quality motherboards, video cards, and other PC components, but the company has just recently entered the field of custom desktop and notebook computers. The ASUS N20A notebook is ultra-portable, sleek, and stylish, yet it also offers top of the line security and high-end specifications to meet the needs of business users.
Alienware’s latest M17 gaming notebook is feature-packed with ATI CrossFire multi-GPU technology (ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs), Intel’s first mobile quad-core CPU (Core 2 Extreme QX9300), up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM, as much as 1TB disk storage (via dual 500GB HDDs in a RAID0 configuration), enhanced sound system (two speakers, with a built-in subwoofer), backlit keyboard, and much more.
The most newsworthy feature of the HP Elitebook 6930p is no doubt the 24 hour battery life the notebook boasts. Battery enhancements and power-saving hardware selections have been combined to yield this milestone achievement. The new battery option is 12-cell, ultra-capacity, and each hardware option has been hand-picked for its battery saving benefit, including an Intel SSD for storage and the highly efficient HP Illumi-Lite LED display. Other specifications for the notebook include Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor P8600 (2.40 GHz), 14.1-inch WXGA+ display, up to 4GB RAM, LightScribe DVD+/-RW SuperMulti with double layer support, ATI Mobility RadeonTM HD 3450 graphics, 2 MP Webcam, Intel 802.11a/b/g/draft-n wireless, and built-in broadband.
Dell has announced a monster new Precision M6300 Mobile Workstation. The 17″ notebook features a powerful quad-core processor, up to 16GB RAM, 1TB disk space via two drives in a RAID0 configuration, 1GB dedicated graphics memory, and an impressive LED-backlit display. Information on system weight has not yet been anounced, but from the specifications, 10lb+ would be a good assumption.
Building on the popularity of the ThinkPad X300 notebook, Lenovo recently released the sub-3 lb ThinkPad X200, which offers a perfect mix of portability and performance. The notebook is one of the first to use Intel’s new Centrino 2 platform to provide the latest technologies and a standard-voltage Core 2 Duo mobile Penryn processor, packed into a 12″ form-factor with a 1280×800 display resolution. Of course, the X200 features the legendary ThinkPad keyboard, the best among laptops. For those who are not comfortable with a TrackPoint (pointing stick), the new X301 may be more preferable, but for the rest, the TrackPoint offers convenient navigation and allows for optimal usage of the available space.
