HP Mini-Note 1000 Teaser
HP today dropped a hint as to its future netbook direction through its shopping home page by posting a teaser graphic for the Mini-Note 1000. An ordinary version of the Vivienne Tam Edition, the system should have the same 10-inch display as the designer netbook but with a more conventional black exterior. Despite the larger size than the 8.9-inch Mini-Note 2133, the system should also be lighter at less than 2.3 pounds and will still measure less than one inch thick.
Dell Inspiron Mini 12
Dell tonight revealed a comparatively new class of portable in the form of the Inspiron Mini 12.

The system is designed for young users or those who want a system with more traditional notebook dimensions but only need the performance of a netbook.
MB Pro Late 2008 Review
The MacBook Pro has always been the bigger, faster, more advanced (and more expensive) version of the MacBook.

Vista outlook unimpressive
Microsoft's recent quarterly revenue report indicated troubling numbers for the Vista operating system that could continue into next year, according to Computerworld. Although the company has shown strength in its business division, the client division, which is primarily driven by Vista, showed only two percent sales growth year over year. In contrast, the overall shipments of PCs increased by 10 to 12 percent. Microsoft claimed the soft sales of its core product was the result of unimpressive shipments of PCs to developing countries and the booming production of netbooks.
New Snow Leopard build
Apple's second build of Snow Leopard, which was released to developers earlier this weekend, brings a number of changes to the next version of the Mac OS X operating system, including a new "simplified" installation experience, preliminary support for HFS+ file system compression and 64-bit kernel, a rewritten Cocoa-based Finder for performance improvements, a new default gamma setting for viewing colors, and basic reading and editing support for Microsoft Exchange in Mail, iCal and Address Book. Apple also noted other multi-core enhancements and low-level kernel operating system changes, including those to queue management in Grand Central its technology for enabling developers to better leverage multi-core processors.
