3K Longitude 400 Renamed 3K RazorBook 400

3K RazorBook 400 The 3K Longitude 400 has been officially renamed to the 3K RazorBook 400 by 3K Computers, according to LAPTOP Magazine.

This netbook / subnotebook / umpc was announced a few weeks ago, starting at $399 and coming with a 7-inch 800×480 widescreen display and a weigh just under two pounds. It uses flash-based storage (similar to the Asus Eee PC).

Something that caught our eye then, and caught the eye of Joanna Stern at LAPTOP Magazine, was the CPU powered the thing. It’s listed as a “400MHz Ingenic 32-bit Single-Core” which seems a bit slow – sure, some of the netbooks are downclocked quite a bit, and while this is running some form of Linux, 400MHz seemed awfully slow given the pricing of other devices in this class (the aforementioned Asus Eee PC starts at $299).
