Top 5 Ultraportables – January 2006

Small-Laptops.com’s top five ultraportables for January 2006, based on page views:

1)Fujitsu LifeBook P1510D
2)ASUS W5F
3)Dell Inspiron 700M
4)Sony VAIO VGN-TX690P
5)Averatec 1050

Note: I’ve added the next 5/6 so it’s a Top 10/11 List, to help with comparisons to February’s list.

6) Flybook V3
7) Averatec 3700
8) Fujitsu LifeBook P7120
9) Lenovo ThinkPad X60 and ThinkPad X60s
10) Acer TravelMate TMC204TMi C204

The Fujitsu P1510D – not a surprise, this 8.9-inch widescreen convertible notebook has garnered a lot of praise (and continues to do so). It now ships with Windows XP Tablet PC edition, and that has generated more interest. It is surprising that this is the only convertible – Tablet/Notebook hybrid, to make the roundup, as this type of ultraportable has generated a lot of interest in the past.

The ASUS W5F is a surprise – it was very nearly the top in views, and it was only announced at the beginning of the month.

The Dell Inspiron 700M (soon to be phased out in favor of the 710M which is virtually identical) and Averatec 1050 are not surprising – both are some of the best deals you can get for an ultraportable, with the Dell 700M dipping below $1000 USD.

The Sony VAIO VGN-TX690P is not a surprise either – Sony makes a darn nice ultraportable with an 11-inch widescreen display and a very lightweight chassis. It’s at the upper end cost-wise, but you are getting your money’s worth.
