Averatec N2700

TriGem's American label Averatec today gave its N2700 notebook a major update with better performance and other extras. The 12-inch notebook now uses a more modern 2GHz Core 2 Duo T6400 and comes preloaded with 4GB of RAM; to match the extra memory, it now ships with Windows Vista 64-bit. It now comes with a 250GB hard drive standard and, in a significant shift away from larger rivals, keeps preloaded trial apps and other 3rd-party software to a minimum to prevent the "bloat" that artificially slows down other Windows systems.

The 4-pound system also has a 1.3-megapixel webcam, an internal DVD burner and uses Intel's GMA 4500 for graphics, giving it enough power to decode HD video largely in hardware. Averatec is already shipping the refreshed N2700 today and prices it at $699.
