Some interesting articles following the announcement of the Sony VAIO UX, that you should read if you are interested in this.
The Lenovo ThinkPad X60s was selected as the best laptop in PC Magazine’s The Best Products of Q1 2006. The ThinkPad X60s is powered by an Intel Core Duo CPU (1.66GHz, Low VoltagE), and has a 12-inch non-widescreen display. It weighs in at around three and a half pounds and has an external optical drive.
Darious Chang asks Is yours too small? It’s a good commentary on the state of ultraportable notebooks.
jkOnTheRun reports that the ThinkPad X60 series are shipping with integrated EVDO options, and speculates that the rumored ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC could be the first of the major Tablet PCs to ship with the EVDO communications option (not just the first of the ultraportable notebooks or Tablet PC hybrids either!).
There are some articles that have been floating around presenting the Flybook A33i as a “new” ultraportable notebook/Tablet PC. It’s a little confusing, as I think that some people/sites are confusing the older Transmeta-powered Flybook with the new Flybook V series. I’m seeing people present the older Flybook’s specifications as the new Flybook’s specifications. One important difference is the CPU – the older is powered by a Transmeta Crusoe CPU, the new series is powered by an Intel Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) Pentium M.
