Neat idea to put all the ports on the back where the chassis is a bit thicker. My netbook is far from slim, but still looks silly as some ports (namely VGA) are almost bigger than the laptop is thick!
If it does house a CULV, then this could be a winner, lightweight with solid performance (compared to atom/celeron)
i would something along these lines to allow me to work when not at my desk
when is this available in the UK?
nvm just found it
only appears to come with
Intel® Celeron™ 743 (1.2GHz) Base
Even if a C2D bumps it up to £500-600 it still looks like an awesome bit of kit.
Dammit! I just ordered my girlfriend's laptop (xmas pressie) last week!
Did you find it on the UK site?
edit: found it
Ooops... lost it again. That link doesn't work.
jeez, they just had to annouce these after i already spent my xmas bonus.
one of these would be great as a streaming media player, saves me having to lug my studio 17 to bed if i want to watch a show.
Adamo XPS and Mac Book Air kickstarted the trend? Really?
So what were the Sony SR1 series laptops, or the later SRX series? Hardly paving slabs, & around the same weight (standalone) as a bag of sugar. And fit in an A4 envelope too. I still have my old SRX 51/P, I checked!
They said kick-started, not started.
Edit: The Dell site gives the UK pricing as £359.
Which makes me sad indeed, as at a sub-£300 it seemed exactly what I was looking for.
if its sub 400quid with C2D ulv i'll definately pick one up
can't understand why only a VGA conenction, should have been HDMI or at least DVI!
What's happened to the 300 quid 7-hour netbooks, though?
A pal of mine has an eee-1000, which seems to last through ice ages. All the modern ones have mechanical disks.
What is the performance of the ULV Celeron like compared to the Atom? I assume its quicker but by how much?
Vostro V13? For a second there I thought I was reading about a car.
that's £359 *plus* VAT... once you add that it goes over the £400 mark... a core solo bumps it to over £500
I think that this is what netbook consumers really want. They want a cheap, real computer that is small-ish but not tiny. At least, I think that's what most consumers want.
It'll be interesting to see what wireless chipset it uses, could be a nice little experiment machine for running backtrack. I was at the eeePC 'cos it has the wireless chipset I need, but this looks very swish.
