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.
