CNET Asia has published a list of their Top 10 Notebooks of January 2006. Interestingly enough, five out of the top 10 were ultraportables – they had 12-inch displays or smaller. The list was based on readership, similar to our Top 5 Ultraportables of January 2006 list.
News.com is reporting that notebooks have passed desktops in US retail
A few people emailed me this, and PCPro.co.uk mentioned it as well, and I thought I would pass it along – as mentioned in thepast, Dell has issued a recall for certain batteries sold with the Latitude D410. Dell has setup a website, DellBatteryProgram.com that walks you through determining whether or not your battery is affected.
There has been so much going on today at that I have not had a chance to process all of the new information and post it on the website – I was walking around in a fog (although that’s more due to the cold that I just got over). I thought I would be able to get back to where I’m staying and get some information up, but I’m exhausted and it’s a lot.
Just a few of the highlights – Toshiba and Lenovo both have announced dual-core Intel Centrino-based ultraportables (Lenovo’s is an update of the X series, Toshiba’s of the M200 Tablet PC series). Sadly the X series update was not widescreen (I had really hoped they would go widescreen). I didn’t get a chance to see either one up close, but plan on tracking down a lot of information about these and other ultraportables while I’m here.
Unfortunately I’m pretty much a one-man show when it comes to the website, and so I’m going to have to put updates off until tomorrow.
I was just going to put a bunch of quick little blurbs up, but I’d rather put up full pages for each new product with all specs, etc.
