Tags: , , ,


Asus are showing a new netbook-style 11.6-inch laptop at Computex. The E202 has just been spotted by Mobilegeeks and not only do the specifications sound interesting but it looks great too. A 4GB version with Pentium 4-core Braswell-family processor was seen with a USB-C port. It’s fanless and weighs just 1.2 KG. This could be the perfect entry-level, back-to-school laptop.

Acer Aspire E11 / ES1 $200 Netbook first impressions + Video

Acer Aspire E11

The Acer Aspire E11 (ES1 in some areas) is one of a new-wave of 200-euro / dollar Windows netbooks entering the market as both a response to low-cost Chromebooks and  part of a continuing drive to cut the cost of entry-level laptops. It’s made possible by a low-cost Intel System on Chip and tight motherboard integration, low-cost storage and the removal of the fan. Just 32GB of SSD storage is offered so there are some limits to how you can use the ES1. Look at it as a cloud-computer though (100GB of free One Drive is included) and it’s easy to see how it might fit into schools, bedrooms and living rooms in many houses across the world. The Acer Es1 can boot Linux too so if you feel like trying  XBMC , Tails, Ubuntu or other distros, you can. A full unboxing and test video is embedded below, after my words on the first 48 hours with the Acer Aspire E11 ES1-111M.

ASUS VivoBook S200E ‘Netbook’ is Nearly an Ultrabook but Definately the Cheapest Win 8 Touch Laptop

Tags: , , , , , , , ,


More and more touchscreen laptops are hitting the sales channels and they’re coming in at both ends of the spectrum. The Acer Aspire V5 Touch is a good example of an Ultrabook-alternative with touch. The ASUS S200E is another. Both of these devices are available with a Core i3 CPU which pushes them into the same processing category as an Ultrabook.  The ASUS Vivobook S200E is referred to as a netbook by Amazon in Germany today.

HP Envy X2–An Option for Ultra-Mobile Fans. Video Hands-On

I hadn’t intended to write about Atom-based devices while at IDF this week but the HP Envy x2 caught my eye in a very good way and after a hands-on I came away thinking how far Atom has come and how this device represents something for those wanting the full flexibility of a modular PC and a focus on battery life.

Dell Quits Netbooks For Ultrabooks, But When?

Tags: , , , , , , , ,


Dell UltrabookBrad Linder of Liliputing has an article up today about the lack of Dell Netbooks on the US site. After a follow-up by Joanna Stern of The Verge, Dell has now confirmed it is dropping netbooks and, apparently, any development of notebooks on the Cedar Trail platform. The focus in 2011, according to the Dell spokesperson, is ‘Thin and Light.’

I have two thoughts. Number 1 is that the Cedar Trail platform doesn’t exactly equate to netbooks and I think there’s space for 11.6” ultralights on that platform. They would offer reasonable CPU power and with an SSD and a redesign have every chance of riding on the coat-tails of Ultrabooks to offer a very cheap and stylish thin and light solution.

The second thought, of course, is when are the Dell Ultrabooks coming?
