eMachines have rolled out three new desktop PCs, and the color-scheme is decidedly white. The eMachines ET1300-02, ET1810-01 and ET1810-03 all have a mini-tower and use AMD's Athlon X2 4850e 2.5GHz processor, Intel's Celeron 420 1.6GHz and Intel's Pentium dual-core E2210 2.2GHz respectively.
Dell Japan have officially announced the Vostro 1220, the budget notebook we saw leaked earlier this month. The 12.1-inch 1280 x 800 notebook uses processors from Intel's Centrino 2 range, together with the GM45 Express chipset, weighs 1.52kg and promises up to 9hrs runtime from the larger 6-cell battery option.
ASRock have announced a new ultraportable, the Multibook G22, and while from the outside this might look like a standard netbook its specs make it something more unusual. Not only does the 12.1-inch 1366 x 768 G22 have an integrated DVD Supermulti drive, but it uses Intel's dual-core Atom 330 processor paired with NVIDIA's Ion graphics chipset.
Acer's Timeline range of ultraportable notebooks has been priced for the US, and whereas we were expecting a starting price of around $699 Acer are actually delivering a $598 entry-level machine. That gets you the 15.6-inch Timeline with Intel's 1.3GHz Pentium SU2700 and 3GB of DDR3 RAM; if you want one of the 14-inch or 13.3-inch models budget $699.99 or $899.99 accordingly.
Chinese OEM Tongfong and VIA have announced the latest Via Nano based ultraportable, the Tongfong S30A. A mere 33mm thick and tipping the scales at 1.4kg, the S30A has a 13.3-inch display, integrated DVD burner and 2GB of RAM; it uses the VIA 1.3GHz Nano U2250 processor together with the unified VIA VX800 MSP and discrete S3 Graphics Chrome 435 ULP graphics making for a HD-capable machine.

This was an interesting assignment. SlashGear has received some FyreTV BoXXXes (Yes, three X's) and absolutely must review them. Oh the terrible, terrible things this job makes me do. Explanation and video after the jump.
