A New Laptop Landscape
I've always been a fan of thinkpad x-series laptops because of their size and weight.Ive always been a fan of ThinkPad X-series laptops because of their size and weight. Recently, though, Ive gotten a couple of new ultraportables in for review that are bound to appeal to users who value portabilitybut want it at a more affordable price. Hewlett-Packards new ultraportable, the $1,599 HP Compaq nc2400, boasts a bright, 12.1-inch screen and weighs 3.6 pounds. The unit includes an extended battery and has a built-in DVD-ROM/ CD-RW combo. The nc2400 was released in early May.
Meanwhile, the Lenovo 3000 v100 laptop, released on May 31, could provide serious competition to Lenovo Groups own ThinkPad X60s in some markets.
