Gigabyte Booktop M1022 netbook review

If there's one segment in consumer electronics where it's hard to stand out, it's netbooks.  The race to the bottom line, together with strict rules from component suppliers regarding maximum specifications, means that the hardware of most machines follows the same, tired pattern.  To differentiate, some brands have gone for super-slimline designs, or extended battery life; Gigabyte, meanwhile, have taken a more unusual route.  Their Booktop M1022 netbook comes complete with a desktop docking station; our friends over at Mobilx.hu were good enough to send us a review unit to try out.

Sony VAIO W: mainstream 10-inch netbook, typical Sony price [Updated]

Sony's VAIO P was never the netbook many people expected it to be - its unusual screen aspect, stand-out form-factor and high sticker price meant it never quite competed with the regular Atom N270 netbook crowd - so the company is back with a far more mainstream alternative.  The Sony VAIO W is an "internet book" with a 10.1-inch screen and Intel's typical N270 1.6GHz processor.

Update: It's official for the US; more details after the cut
