Everex has helped out a little too: the notebook's hard drive is a 60GB parallel ATA unit that spins at a mere 4,200rpm.

The machine's other specs include 512MB of DDR 2 SDRAM, dual-layer capable DVD burner, 15.4in, 1,280 x 800 display driven by VIA's UniChrome Pro integrated graphics engine, 10/100Mbps Ethernet, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, 56Kbps modem and three USB 2.0 ports.

The NC1500 will retail in the US for $498, exclusively through 2,900 Wal-Mart stores. ®
