The Archos 10 will be available this month

Punters can pre-order the machine on Archos’ website for £350 ($511/€388), with the first shipments expected to leave its warehouse towards the end of January.

As previously reported, the Archos 10 has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor under its dinky hood and 1GB of DDR 2 memory. A 160GB hard drive also features.

The 1024 x 600 resolution screen measures 10.2in and, according to Archos, the machine has an "ergonomic keyboard" – although we can’t see how it differs from any other weeny netbook keyboard.

Fans of cabled internet access can get online using the Archos’ 10/100Mb/s Ethernet connection, or through the PC’s integrated 802.11b/g Wi-Fi.

A 1.3Mp camera is integrated into the netbook’s lid and you’ll be able to collect images taken on your compact camera using the machine’s four-in-one memory card reader. The Archos 10 also has three USB ports. ®
