Novatech pushes affordable Ultrabook
Yours for 430 quid
UK system builder Novatech has hopped on the Ultrabook bandwagon with a new range of 14in skinny notebooks dubbed the nFinity series.
The line-up starts with a second-gen Intel Core i3 chip, 2GB of Ram and a 64GB SSD drive. That'll set you back a mere £430.
For more va-va-voom, there's the Core i5 and i7 models, which come with double the SSD storage and 4GB of Ram. These are priced at £580 and £700, respectively.
While none come with any USB 3.0 ports, but there are three USB 2.0 connectors. The machines' battery life is rates at seven hours, and the company says they'll boot up into Windows 7 just 15 seconds.
They have 1366 X 768 displays, 802.11g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, VGA and HDMI output and an SD card slot. No Ethernet or optical drive, though.
The Novatech nFinity range hits shelves on 10 April 2012. ®
Gah.... another pants screen
If the screen resolution wasn't so low I'd be buying one of those now especially since you can get it without paying the Microsoft tax.
14" screen at 1366x768 - what a joke.
No LAN port?
Dear god, don't let this become standard.
I thought that too.
Although I've had problems with Novatech in the past, this is a definite improvement on the practice of bundling Windows without any choice.
