Want a Uniquely Colored Dell 710M or 12″ iBook or PowerBook?

Would you like a Dell 710M or perhaps a 12-inch iBook or 12-inch PowerBook in different colors? Last month, Colorware started offering their services for Dell’s 710M 12-inch ultraportable notebooks. You can get different high-gloss colored coatings for your notebook case (including the recently added color “Cotton Candy Pink” ???) from Colorware, as well as customized corporate logos/photos.

FYI: Site Update

I’m going to be helping somebody migrate to a new website site today and possibly tomorrow, so news will be slow, but I’ll post anything I missed today and tomorrow wednesday night or thursday morning.

The site in question is going to be a pseudo-partner site to this website – there is a slight bit of overlap, but not much, and I think it might be of interest to Small-Laptop.com users. Continue reading

Quick Note – RSS Feeds and Feedburner

Site Changes: Site, Laptop List (Feb 26)

Because I’m in the process of adding a lot of laptops to the site, the navigation list was getting quite large, and slowing things down. As a result, this weekend I’ve cleaned up the site interface a bit, moving the large laptop list onto its own page. In its place I have created three categories on the front page:
Just Announced – Laptops that have just been announced or just started shipping.
Recently Added – Laptops recently added to the database – this may not necessarily be “new” laptops, as I’m constantly adding older/discontinued models.
Weekly Most Popular – Most popular laptops from the previous week, based on page views/searches.

Laptop List
Having moved the laptop list away from the side navigation, it now resides on its own page, the Ultraportable/Small Laptop List. It’s organized into two columns – one is by display size, the other by manufacturer. Both show the same laptops, just organized differently.

Overall, this should speed up the site considerably, especially if you are on dial-up, as not only have page sizes been reduced, but the number of database queries has been lowered as well (which will benefit everybody). Continue reading
