WinBook X610 Reviews and Articles:
LAPTOP Magazine – February 2006 – All told, the acceptably performing WinBook X610 is easy to hold and carry in a backpack or briefcase. However, potential buyers should consider its assortment of quirks when deciding whether or not this lower priced lightweight is worth its weight in savings.

CNET – Review, including video

MobilityGuru – January 2006 – The X610 is a decent, modestly capable portable laptop computer. It offers a sufficient combination of smaller size, lighter weight and basic computing power that make it a reasonable choice for those seeking the most portability for the least expense

HardwareCentral – September, 2005 – 3 out of 5 stars – we’re not blind to the appeal of a $1,400 ultraportable, especially one whose screen, keyboard, and hard disk are all larger than its ritzy rivals’. As wardrobe accessories go, it’s definitely in style.
