Averatec N2700 thin-and-light notebook features nice specs for $699


TriGem has unveiled the feature-laden Averatec N2700, a 12-inch notebook with 4GB of RAM and a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU weighing in at just over four pounds for $699.

It’s also got a 250GB SATA hard drive, DVD burner, and 1.3-megapixel webcam. Total thickness is about 1.2 inches and the machine comes preloaded with the 64-bit version of Vista Home Premium. It’s nice to see some 12-inch notebooks every once in a while — seems like everything’s 13.3-inches or bigger nowadays. Unfortunately, the keyboard on the N2700 looks pretty cramped at first glance. Check out those two tiny shift keys. My pinkies get all crampy just looking at them.


TriGem’s press release says that the N2700 is available now, although there’s no sign of a way to buy it on the company’s website yet.
