HP Pavilion DM1 gets reviewed: decent battery but cramped keyboard

HP Pavilion DM1 gets reviewed: decent battery but cramped keyboard

HP's Pavilion DM1 is still yet to show up for pre-order on the company's US site (though the support pages are full of information) but that hasn't stopped Netbooked from grabbing one of the 11.6-inch ultraportables for review.  They reckon the DM1 "fares decently" among its peers, though they're not impressed by the amount of screen flex on show (you can press the trackpad buttons by pushing down on the edge of the lid when closed).

Gateway EC54 Review – 15.6″ CULV Notebook (EC5409u)

Gateway EC54 Review – 15.6″ CULV Notebook (EC5409u)

It used to be that only the smallest, most frugal of netbooks - paired with huge, 9-cell batteries - could offer the reassurance of a full day away from an outlet. Now, with the advent of Intel's consumer ultra-low voltage processors, notebooks that wouldn't look out of place on a regular desk can now boast lengthy run-times too. Into the fray steps the Gateway EC5409u, distinguishing itself not only by virtue of healthy battery life predictions - up to 8hrs, Gateway ambitiously suggest - but a reasonably-sized 15.6-inch display. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Dell Adamo XPS: Hands-On Impressions with Video Demo

Dell Adamo XPS: Hands-On Impressions with Video Demo

We've seen it teased and we've seen the first photos, but today Dell is finally giving us the skinny (pun intended) on the thinnest notebook ever – the Dell Adamo XPS. The 9.99 mm thin notebook, which will be shipping in time for the holidays, will inevitably be compared to Apple’s Macbook Air and no doubt it is thinner, but the starting $1,800 price tag won't make it cheaper.

Gigabyte Booktop M1305 ultraportable gets GPU-toting desktop dock [Video]

Gigabyte have always thought a little different with their ultraportables, and their latest model is no different.  The Gigabyte Booktop M1305, like the Booktop M1022 we reviewed back in June, comes with a desktop docking station; however, the M1305 is a 13.3-inch 1,366 x 768 machine and uses Intel's CULV processors, rather than the paltry Atom N270, and squeezes an NVIDIA GeForce GT220 GPU with 1GB of DDR3 memory into the dock for improved graphics performance.

The FrankenBook: A Creation that Cannot be Killed

The FrankenBook: A Creation that Cannot be Killed

Leading computer manufacturers along with Intel and Microsoft have inadvertently created a monster. And like Frankenstein, it is a monster they’d like to destroy. Although the industry’s hot-selling brainchild is physically quite small –perhaps more analogous to a gremlin in scale— with its small 10-inch screen, underpowered Intel Atom processor, cheaper version of Windows and under $400 price, netbooks are devouring corporate profit margins.

Lenovo's latest IdeaPad ultraportable has finally got the official nod from the company's Japanese arm.  Yet to show up on the company's US site, the Lenovo IdeaPad U150 has an 11.6-inch 1,366 x 768 glossy display, 1.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU2300 processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory (8GB max) and a 250GB hard-drive; there's no 3G option, at least not in Japan, but you do get WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and gigabit ethernet.
