Toshiba Libretto W100 hands-on [Video]

Dual-touchscreens, a clamshell book/netbook form-factor and a custom finger-friendly UI: the Toshiba Libretto W100 has broken the mold, and while the company concedes its resemblance to the Microsoft Courier renders, they're insisting it's a very different product. Based around two 7-inch capacitive touchscreen displays, a Pentium U5400 processor and a 62GB SSD, the Libretto W100 is the first such device to run Windows 7 and can be used either as a regular mini-notebook - complete with various on-screen keyboards - or as a digital book.

Intel freeze CULV refresh over Calpella success?

Another rumored blow to Intel's CULV range of ultra-low-voltage processors for ultra-thins, as DigiTimes' sources at notebook manufacturers claim the silicon company have delayed the launch of a new CULV line-up.  The decision - which would push the new ultra-thin CPUs back into Q3 2010 - is blamed in part on Acer's decision to eschew the CULV chips in favor of low-voltage Calpalla-series processors for their newest TimelineX notebooks.

Hanvon BC10C multitouch Win7 tablet gets tested: premium feel

Hanvon's BC10C (and its BA10E sibling) was a surprising stand-out from CeBIT 2010 recently, a multitouch-capable 10-inch slate running Windows 7.  jkkmobile managed to bring one home from the show, and has been testing it out to see whether it's all good news.  The upside is that media performance - thanks to the 1.3GHz Celeron ULV processor - is decent; the downside is that CULV notebook style components don't add up to extremes of battery life.

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e gets reviewed: decent on outside, sluggish on inside

Lenovo prompted a few raised eyebrows when they introduced what's basically a CULV ultraportable into their ThinkPad range with the new X100e, leading to all manner of questions as to whether an AMD Athlon Neo processor could satisfy the business segment.  Over at Netbooked they've been reviewing the single-core 1.6GHz ThinkPad X100e, and while the physical design shouldn't cause too many sleepless nights for long-time Lenovo lovers, performance leaves plenty to be desired.
