Averatec 1579 Notebook

Averatec is about to release a new size of ultraportable PC, says an inadvertent store posting. The Averatec 1579 will be slightly larger than the company's smallest portables but will also be much faster, trading up from a Pentium M to a 1.06GHz ultra-low voltage Core Duo with 1GB of RAM as the baseline. The size also won't preclude storage, with a DVD drive and a 120GB hard disk both fitting into the small frame. A 4-in-1 card reader will also give many photographers needed storage.

Though unannounced, the 1579 is currently listed at $1,275 and should receive a formal introduction on May 11th. An update to the 12-inch Averatec 2370 notebook, dubbed simply the 2371, is expected to follow with Vista replacing XP in the otherwise identical dual-core 1.6GHz Turion 64 X2 notebook with 1GB of RAM and 100GB of hard drive storage.
