Averatec launches 11.1-inch laptop

Averatec has introduced the new, 11.1-inch 1579 ultraportable.

Today, Averatec announced the new 1579 ultraportable laptop, which features an 11.1-inch wide-screen display, 1-inch thickness, and 3.4-pound weight. The rest of the specs:

  • 1.06GHz Intel Core Duo U2400 ultralow voltage processor
  • 1GB DDR2 RAM (1GB max)
  • 120GB, 5,400 rpm hard drive
  • Dual-layer DVD burner
  • Three USB 2.0 ports, an ExpressCardslot, and a 4-in-1 memory card reader
  • Windows Vista Home Premium

Because we're used to Averatec pricing its laptops so aggressively, the new laptop's $1,300 price tag struck us as merely average for its specs. Nevertheless, the Averatec 1579 promises to be an affordable alternative for home users who want an ultraportable laptop but don't want to pay the premium for a business-class machine such as the Sony VAIO TXN17P/B.
