Averatec reveals thin, full-speed aluminum notebook

updated 09:35 am EDT, Mon July 27, 2009

Averatec N3400 Ultra Slim

TriGem today moved its US PCs somewhat upscale by shipping the Averatec N3400. Thanks in part to its aluminum shell, the 13-inch portable is one of the thinnest in its class at between 0.4 and 0.98 inches thick but still uses a regular notebook processor in the form of a 2.16GHz Pentium dual-core. It's also one of the lightest in its category at 3.8 pounds and manages this by bundling a USB-based external DVD burner instead of adding weight to the system's insides.

Just one standard configuration is available and at $799 comes with 3GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and Intel's GMA 4500 for video. The price also still affords 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 1.3-megapixel webcam. TriGem is shipping the system as of today.
