Evesham delivers lightweight laptop

Mon Nov 13 2006, 14:04
UK PC MANUFACTURER Evesham Technology has released what it is calling "probably" the lightest notebook on the market with a built-in optical drive.

The new machine, dubbed the Light Book, weighs in at 1.2kg and measures at 283 x 238 x 35mm, making for a sleek little machine, says Evesham. Evesham's newest sports an Intel Core Solo low voltage processor as well as the Intel GMA 950 video engine, and a built in optical drive which the company seems excited about, and says is rarely seen on a machine of this size.

Battery life isn't too shoddy, holding five hours of life with the machine as standard. With the optional extended battery unit, however, life can reach up to ten hours.

The display's a 12.1" XGA with which you can watch your DVDs on, using the machine's DVD/CDRW/Dual Layer DVD-RW drive. 512MB of DDR 533 RAM is packed in the little shiny box, too, complimenting a 60GB hard drive.

Also included in the machine is Intel 3945ABG Wireless LAN, as well as finger print identification and a built-in 4-in-1 card reader.

If you're intrigued, the Light Book starts at £999.00 and comes with a three year Evesham warranty. µ
