Budget laptop maker Averatec has announced its first 17-inch wide-screen notebook, the 7100 series. The entertainment-oriented laptop weighs 7.2 pounds and inaugurates Averatec's new black-and-gray color scheme. The rest of the specs:

  • AMD Sempron and Turion processors from 1.6GHz to 1.8GHz
  • 512MB or 1GB (up to 2GB) RAM
  • ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics
  • WXGA+ display
  • Hard drives from 80GB to 100GB
  • Dual-layer DVD burner
  • 802.11b/g wireless
  • Integrated 5-in-1 media card reader
The most compelling spec of all, though, is the price tag: base configurations start at $849.
