MSI claim Wind available now in US

Having experienced multiple delays and the indignity of a downgraded battery, MSI's budget ultraportable offering, the Wind, is finally available in the US.  Intended to rival the Eee PC 1000-series, according to the company's press release the Wind should now be available both at MSI's online store as well as Newegg.com, Amazon.com, Frys.com, ZipZoomFly.com, mwave.com and buy.com.

Hercules eCAFÉ EC-1000W Review

Hercules eCAFÉ EC-1000W Review

In the grand scheme of netbooks, Hercules probably isn't a name you associate with budget ultraportables; the company is taking their first step into the market with the eCAFÉ EC-1000W. A 10-inch Atom N270 machine, there's little on the spec list that makes the EC-1000W stand out among the rank and rile, so is this yet another me-too model or a netbook worth considering? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Nokia Booklet 3G review

Nokia Booklet 3G review

While many scoffed at the idea of Nokia building a netbook, the idea does have its share of merits. After all, the Finnish company knows a few things about eking out runtimes from compact batteries, and with netbooks being perhaps the most likely of computing devices to be in search of mobile connectivity, stuffing them with the sort of wireless access your high-end Nokia boasts certainly makes sense. Throw in eye-catching design and you're onto a winner, right? Unfortunately, we've found the Nokia Booklet 3G falls short in other areas; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Acer Aspire One AO751h Review – 11.6″ HD Netbook

Acer Aspire One AO751h Review – 11.6″ HD Netbook

It's probably fair to say that we haven't been particularly impressed with what we've heard about Acer's Aspire One 751. The phrase "pretty but dumb" has been muttered more than once, an aesthetically pleasing machine but one lacking in processing power. So when Acer offered us the latest version, the AO751h-1522, we jumped at the opportunity to see how it holds up to our own exacting standards. Check out the full review after the cut

Acer Aspire One D150 reviewed: battery shrinking, but price impressive

Acer Aspire One D150 reviewed: battery shrinking, but price impressive

After an unboxing photoset and video preview, the 10-inch Acer Aspire One D150 now gets a full review courtesy of Laptop Mag.  The segment leader gets a slicker casing, speedier 160GB hard-drive and larger touchpad, while the bigger display - although frustratingly glossy at some angles - is always welcome.  However have Acer soured the deal with an attempt at battery cost-cutting?

Hackintosh netbooks benchmarked: on a par with 2004 G4 iBook

Hackintosh netbooks benchmarked: on a par with 2004 G4 iBook

Since Apple won't give us the netbook so many people have been calling for, the past six months have seen a surge in Hackintosh netbooks: formerly Linux or Windows XP machines tweaked into running OS X.  It's not exactly allowed in the terms of Apple's EULA, no, but with the latest drivers it's not exactly difficult, either; question is, is the machine you end up with worth it?  Over at Apple Insider they've been running benchmarks on an Advent 4211 (an MSI Wind U100 rebadge), comparing it to a late-2004 G4 iBook and a first-gen MacBook Air.

Samsung NC10 netbook: yes, that keyboard really is great

Samsung NC10 netbook: yes, that keyboard really is great

It doesn't take much to differentiate yourself from your netbook rivals, and once word got out that the Samsung NC10 had a far better keyboard than other budget ultraportables we've seen, it developed quite a pre-advance following.  Laptop Mag have spent some hands-on time with the NC10, and return with nothing that will really dissuade would-be buyers; the netbook feels just as fast as its Atom brethren, and that keyboard really is good.
