    It's a netbook! It's an e-reader! It's the enTourage eDGe!

    Reading e-books on a netbook is a nuisance, right? But e-readers are a pain because they're a single-function device, which means your man-bag gets filled with yet-another-specialty-gadget. Behold the enTourage eDGe: "the world’s first dualbook, combining the functions of an e-reader, netbook, notepad, and audio/video recorder and player in one." Read More

    Dynabook MX/43 and MX/33: New netbooks from Toshiba

    Toshiba's 18-4-inch laptop Qosmio G60, which the company announced today, is quite cool, but at $3,200, it may be a bit too pricey for most of us. And sometimes, a smaller laptop does the job, too. So it's good to know Toshiba has some (relatively) affordable netbooks among the dozens of new computers the company announced today for the Japanese market. Read More

    A week with the Viliv S7

    So I have been using the Viliv S7 regularly for about a week now and I have concluded that it is the best netbook I have ever used. But yes, it's a netbook. The S7 might have a touchscreen, convertible design, super long battery life, and a modest size SSD, but at the end of the day, it's a luxury netbook. Read More

    The Vivienne Tam HP netbook tries to justify its existence with a fancy butterfly design

    Just as I thought. The 2nd generation Vivienne Tam netbook is just atherno netbook with a pretty graphic printed on its lid. That’s it. Maybe it’s the testosterone speaking, but who the hell cares? Sure, it’s nice looking and I can appreacate the artwork, but I’m thinking that few, if any, chicks will be willing to shell out for $699 for a netbook that features an Atom… Read More

    Viliv S7 spotted on Dynamism with pricing info

    Think that the Viliv X70 is hot? (It is.) The unreleased S7 is shaping up to be even hotter with a 9.5 max battery life, physical keyboard, and convertible design. Our review model is currently somewhere over the Pacific so until we can post some hands-on images and first impressions, head over to Dynamism. The retailer just posted the S7 product page that not only lists all the specs but also the… Read More

    Nokia netbook fondled

    NokiaBlog has some red hot photos of the Nokia netbook. His thoughts: I suggest picking it up from a table to really appreciate the Nokia Booklet 3G. It feels and looks like a lighter, smaller version of Apple Macbook. Even the keyboard and battery feel similar. That’s not definitely a bad thing because I love my Macbook. Read More

    A peek under the hood of a netbook

    One might think that netbooks and similar ultracompact laptops have all manner of specialized, custom made pieces and parts in order to cram all that functionality into such a small frame. One would be wrong: netbooks are chock full of a surprising number of fairly generic components. For a nice visual breakdown of what, exactly, goes into a generic netbook, take a gander at this netbook teardownRead More

  • Quick Look: HP Mini 5101

    Quick Look: HP Mini 5101

    HP announced the Mini 5101 back in late June and we just got one into the ‘Gear office for review. As John noted back when it was announced, the 5101 isn’t a netbook and it’s fallen into the relatively new category of ultralights. I really liked the Mini 1000 and 2140, but the 5101 might be my new favorite. Here’s a quick rundown of the specs for the review unit we were sent: Read More
