Welcome to this weekâ€™s netbook roundup. In this space every Monday Iâ€™ll highlight netbook new items from around the web.
- Lenovo IdeaPad S10-2 reviewed, deemed a mixed bag â€“ Looks like the second version of the Lenovo netbook, the S10-2 [Portal page], has been reviewed by Laptop Magazine, and while Brad of Liliputing thinks that is scores pretty well in Laptopâ€™s tests, it seems that the reviewers didnâ€™t like the aesthetic appearance of the unit.
- BenQ Lanuches Joybook Lite U102, Rights Wrongs â€“ From netbooknews.com, we see that BenQ releases the Joybook Lite U102, which brings some evolutionary upgrades to the table over the previous U101 model.
- NECâ€™s latest netbook boasts an 8.5 hour battery â€“ NECâ€™s LaVie Light Lui netbook runs for nearly 8.5 hours on a single charge. Pretty good, specs are predictable netbook specs (Atom, 1GB of RAM, 1024×600, yadda yaddaâ€¦)
- NVIDIA ION Netbooks from Computex â€“ A video from netbooknews.com that shows three NVIDIA ION based netbooks.
- Asus Seashell Eee PCs to Come in Four New Colors â€“ Looks like the Asus Eee 1005HA [Portal page] and 1008HA [Portal page] will be released in a total of 6 colors, 4 brand new ones including pink, blue, ruby red, and sapphire blue. Swing through the link to see images of the netbooks with their new colors on. I like the sapphire the best!
- Shadowy modder gives Eee PC a risky back alley trackball implant â€“ Pretty interesting mod puts a trackball directly into the case of an Eee 901. More interesting yet: the trackball is from an Apple â€˜Mighty Mouseâ€™. It is just me or does that ball look to big to be from one of those mice? Maybe its just meâ€¦ looks to be good for scrolling regardless.
- How-to: Internal 3G to Samsung NC10. The easy way â€“ Jkk helps you understand how to get 3G in your Samsung NC10.
