Averatec debuts its first Santa Rosa notebook

updated 09:25 am EDT, Tue May 22, 2007

Averatec 8300

Averatec's parent company TriGem today released the Averatec 8300, its first portable based on the latest Core 2 Duo architecture. Although some details are still unreleased, the company promises CPUs based on the faster 800MHz bus of the Intel Santa Rosa platform as well as "the latest graphic card," suggesting dedicated graphics either through AMD's Mobility Radeon HD line or the NVIDIA GeForce 8M. Confirmed in the launch are a 15.4-inch display, 160GB of hard disk storage, a 1.3-megapixel webcam in the lid, and a DVD rewriter.

Official prices are unavailable, though the system debuts first in TriGem's native Korea. A US release is very likely and should be accompanied by a modest price given Averatec's typical budget focus. [via AVING]
