NU Universal Docking Station

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2009

NU Universal Docking StationOne of the major drawbacks of a netbook is the lack of storage options. That’s why NU is offering their Universal Docking Station for netbooks. It’s pretty darn useful and comes with an integrated Super-Multi DVD writer next to a removable enclosure that can hold another 2.5″ hard drive.

But that’s not all. They also threw in a two-port USB hub and a built-in fan. No word yet on price or availability, but it should be headed stateside soon.

Toshiba Mini NB200 Netbook with 9-Cell batteryThe netbook will soon get a graphics boost, with a number of companies preparing to announce Nvidia ION powered models. Word is, there should be some big announcements from “key” players at Computex, the annual PC trade show in Taipei at the beginning of June. This thanks to Pocket-Lint’s man inside.

The computer uses an Intel Atom chip as standard netbooks, but uses the new graphics chip from Nvidia called ION to allow users to use more demanding applications. Users will be able to view 1080p content and play games like Spore and Portal.

Toshiba Mini NB200 Netbook with 9-Cell battery

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on April 22nd, 2009

Toshiba Mini NB200 Netbook with 9-Cell batteryBattery life in netbooks is the new thin. Everyone is competing to give you more juice. Toshiba is no different. Hence the 9-Cell battery version of the NB200 that claims to last for 9 hours, which is fine by us. That isn’t all it has going for it though.

The Toshiba NB200 has some other interesting features, like a 10.1″ TruBrite display, a 3D accelerometer, one always-on USB port for charging and a large touch pad. It only weighs 2.42 Lbs too, so you won’t be lifting weights.

Velocity Micro’s Atom N270 NoteMagix M10: This month for $380

Velocity Micro's Atom N270 NoteMagix M10: This month for $380It’s been in hiding since its CES debut, but Velocity Micro’s 10.2-inch NoteMagix M10 is on sale with an April 30 estimated ship date. The base price is $380, and comes in red, blue, and black.

The only customization option besides the color is a DVD writer for $70. You’ll get the usual spec list that you would expect with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor and a 6-cell battery. There’s probably not enough here to compete with other brands in the over-saturated netbook market. And it looks a little chunky. But we wish them well.

Cherrypal BingWith the poor economy and the soaring popularity of cheap netbooks, it’s become normal for new machines to be introduced frequently. Many of the netbooks on the market are from big name makers like Dell, HP, Asus, and MSI. However, even smaller and lesser known computer firms are getting in on the netbook action like Cherrypal.

The Cherrypal Bing is a 10.2-inch netbook offering a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 with 160GB of storage, Intel Atom N270, 160Gb HDD, Wi-Fi, and a webcam. Sounds just like all the other 10-inch netbooks on the market right?

Laptop Mag gets hands on with new BenQ U101 netbook

Posted in Netbook by Shane McGlaun on December 30th, 2008

BenQ JoyBook U101Say the word netbook and visions of BenQ don’t jump to my mind; I think more of external DVD burners. That didn’t stop BenQ from being the next firm to jump into the netbook market and its first offering is called the JoyBook U101.

Laptop Mag got their geeky hands onto the 10-inch netbook and found that it had the same poorly placed right shift key that the Asus Eee. At least BenQ went for colors and patterns rather than the same old black, white, or silver colors everyone else makes.
