Acer is a big name in netbooks and makes some of the more popular rigs out there. Acer has only recently unveiled some new notebooks in its TimelineX series. At the unveiling of the Timeline machines, Acer hinted at a new netbook that was in the works called the D260.
The D260 is the follow up to the D250 that was unveiled last year sporting Android and Windows. The D260 would also be a dual boot netbook with Android and Windows. Other than the machine is in the works we don't have any details.
We can probably count on the same basic machine with a newer Atom processor. Acer folks on hand also stated that a netbook with Chrome was "likely" in Q3 or closer to the holidays.
HP and Dell might be thinking of getting out of the 10.1-inch netbook market, but Asus sure isn't. Asus continues on its path of offering a different netbook for every shopper. The company has unveiled a new Eee 1001PX netbook that you can get in a cool carbon fiber finish.
The machine has a 10.1-inch screen with a 1024 x 600 resolution and runs an Intel Atom N450 processor. It can be optioned with either 1GB or 2GB of RAM. Other features include a 160GB or 250GB HDD.
The netbook also has WiFi, optional Bluetooth, and a 0.3MP webcam. The standard 3-cell battery promises 4.5 hours of runtime and an optional 6-cell claims 9-hours of runtime.
Over the last year or so with the economy doing so poorly around the world, netbooks have been one of the few bright spots in the computer market. The catch is that netbooks are cheap and have driven the profits of computer makers down.
Sources cited by DigiTimes are now claiming that both HP and Dell will be reducing their investment in 10-inch netbooks. HP may even be considering not offering netbooks in the 10.1-inch size.
Instead, HP is said to be focusing on 11.6-inch notebooks with AMD processors because there is more profit in those machines. Yes, everything is based on profits. Acer, Asus, and Samsung are still going to be in the 10.1-inch netbook market in a big way.
The folks over at PeeWee PC who know how to bring a smile to all little no-neck monster's faces has just announced its new PeeWee Power Laptop.
Given it's aimed at children between the ages of 4 to 8, it needed to be able to withstand a lot of pain and for that reason PeeWee designed it to be spill resistant as well as featuring a durable drop/shock-proof construction that will make this ruggedized 10.1" unit difficult to destory, even for the most destructive of toddlers.
Running over the actual specs, it'll be more than sufficient for any task a child's going to need. Running an Atom N450 1.66GHz CPU on Intel's NM10 Express chipset, the unit also includes a GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB HDD, 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth, 6-cell battery, 1.3M camera and memory card reader.
PeeWee PC has slapped an MSRP on the PeeWee Power Laptop of $499.99.

ASUS has let loose a stack of info about its first two multimedia laptops that are based on the Calpella platform and use Core i5-520M 2.4GHz processors.
The N82JV-VX020V is a 14-inch model whilst the N61JA-JX008V uses a 16-inch; both of which are LED-backlit displays that run a native res of 1366x768.
Other specs that remain consistent between the two models is 4GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, 8-in-1 card reader, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, HDMI output, USB 3.0 support (via one connector + 2 x USB 2.0 connectors), Bluetooth and a 6-cell battery.
Apart from the screen sizes, the only other notable difference between the two is that the N61JA uses a Mobility Radeon HD 5730 1GB for graphics, whilst the N82JV runs a GeForce GT 335M 1GB setup (together with Optimus tech).
Both notebooks are said to hit EUrope in mid-April at a price of 1049 Euro each.
The new machine is called the EliteBook 8740W, it is a large machine measuring in at 397.5 x 285.5 x 36.5 mm, and it has a gunmetal finish for better looks than the typical business focused machine. The screen of the rig is a 17-inch unit with WXGA+ or WUXGA display options.
Powering the rig is a choice of several Intel Core i5 or i7 CPUs. You can opt for up to 16GB of RAM, and up to 600GB HDDs. A SSD with up to 256GB is available. The machine can be ordered with a DVD burner or a Blu-ray drive and can be fitted with several NVIDIA Quadro FX graphics options. The rig will ship in April starting at $1999.
I like to keep my gadgets looking new, but I am not a big fan of adding extra bulk to my gear. If you want to keep the scratches off things like your smartphone and your notebook GelaSkins has a cool line of protective coatings that feature Marvel superheroes.
The line includes a number of designs from popular comics like Ironman, X-Men, Spiderman, and more. You can get the skins for devices like the iPhone at about $15. Larger skins for notebooks cost $29.95.
The images look high quality and include a digital version you can use as a wallpaper or home screen image. If the Marvel skins are too geeky for you, other designs are available.
If you live in Canada, you will be among the first anywhere to have a chance to get your hands on the new Gateway EC14D01h ultraportable. The little machine is set to launch later this month in Canada for $579.99 CAD.
For that much money, you get an Intel Pentium ULV SU4100 processor running at 1.3GHz, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and an 11.6-inch screen. That smallish screen is LED backlit and sports a resolution of 1366 x 768.
Graphics are handled by Intel GMA 4500MHD and the machine has 4GB of RAM. Storage is to a 320GB HDD and Gateway builds a DVD drive into the small machine, which is uncommon in the ultraportable market today. Other features include a 6-cell battery, WiFi, webcam, USB ports, HDMI out, and a multi-gesture track pad.

Word's out that Intel is apparently preparing a netbook version of its Atom D510 dual-core processor for nettops. This would be particularly good news for potential netbook buyers if not for the fact the chip has been proven not to do anything noticable for performance over the previous D330 model. Where it does shine more is in power consumption, resulting in longer battery life.
The netbook version of this chip will be given a different name in the lineup, likely called the N500. No specifics in terms of when (or if) Intel will have it ready for OEMs just yet.
Asus is always adding new machines to its Eee netbook line. I am not always sure we need new models since many of them have little to set them apart from other machines in the line already. Asus has unveiled a new netbook today called the Eee 1005PR.
The machine uses the Broadcom BCM 70015 HD decoder to handle the acceleration of HD video on the 10.1-inch LED backlit 1366 x 768 screen. The machine has 2GB of RAM and a 250GB HDD. Asus also offers an additional 500GB of online storage.
The CPU is an Intel Atom N450 and the netbook has a wimpy 0.3MP webcam. Connectivity options include VGA out, three USB 2.0 ports, RJ45, and a memory card reader. The 6-cell 63Wh optional battery claims 11 hours of runtime and the standard 6-cell 48Wh battery claims 9 hours of use per charge.
We heard about the MSI Wind U160 netbook back in early February. What we didn't know at the time is when exactly the machine would ship. MSI has now offered us that info.
MSI says that the U160 is available right now at Frys, Newegg.com, and Buy.com for $379.99. We already know the specs of the U160, but in case you missed them I will outline them again. The U160 uses an Intel N450 Atom CPU.
It runs Windows 7 Starter, has a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 LCD screen that is LED backlit, and graphics via Intel GMA3150. It has 1GB of RAM, 160GB of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a memory card reader. The 6-cell battery provides a claimed 15 hours of battery life per charge.
I am a sucker for a thin notebook or netbook. I like to travel light when I am on the road and really thin notebooks are the way to go for me, assuming they don't shed too much performance or cost too much.
LG has announced the official launch of its new ultra-thin X300 notebook. We first spied this notebook at CES back in January and it's as sexy now as it was then. The machine has an 11.6-inch LCD, weighs 970g, and is 17.5mm thick.
The machine gets a reflective keyboard and a borderless touch pad. The CPU is a 2GHz Intel Menlow unit and the notebook has 2GB of RAM. Storage is to a 128GB SSD and the power sipping CPU has no fan, which should mean dead silent operation. Windows 7 Home Premium is the OS and the machine gets a webcam and 3G modem. The rig will ship in Asia in March with other countries coming later. There is no word on pricing right now.
Lenovo unveiled its new IdeaPad Y460 notebook back around CES in January and gave us a vague March availability date. If the new notebook caught your eye, you can now order the machine on Lenovo.com.

We have already seen the HP Mini 210. HP has teamed up with fashion designed Vivienne Tam again to offer a special edition of one of its netbooks. There is no special hardware inside, just a special color and design.
The machine is gold in color and has Tam's "Butterfly Lovers" design. The lid of the machine has butterflies on it and the screen savers and desktop background sport similar insects.
The hardware is the same old Mini 210 fare with an Intel Atom N450, 10.1-inch LCD, and 2GB of RAM. the battery is a 3-cell unit good for up to 5.5 hours of run time per charge. A wireless optical mouse with the gold color and butterfly design is optional. The machine will sell for about $600.
Averatec has unveiled what it claims to be the world's thinnest and lightest 10-inch netbook. The N1200 will come in a few different models with prices of $329 to $379. Some version will have Windows 7 and others will use XP.
The line is under an inch thick and uses a magnesium alloy case to cut weight to 2.2 pounds. The line uses the Intel Atom N450 CPU and has a 1.3MP webcam. Storage options are 160GB or 250GB HDDs and 1GB of RAM is standard.
Up to 2GB of RAM is supported. The difference in the machine is the amount of storage space, OS, and if Bluetooth is featured. Battery life on the high-end version is promised to be up to six hours with other versions lasting up to three hours.
Asus is pulling the wraps off a lot of gear at CeBIT this week. Among the offerings getting official at the show is the new line of N series notebooks that all run the same hardware and vary in screen size. The machines will also offer superior sound systems.
