Sharp Acius MP30Sharp's ultraportable Actius MP30 laptop weighs only 2.8 pounds, runs Transmeta's Efficieon 1.6 GHz processor, has a 10.4-inch screen, with 512MB RAM, a 40GB hard drive, and built-in 802.11g WiFi. PC Magazine finds the keyboard a little small (87 percent of a full-size keyboard) and the Efficeon runs about 15 percent slower than a similar speed Pentium M, but the laptop lasted a respectable 3 hours on a battery charge and has Intervideo's Instant Play, which lets users play DVDs and CDs (the store-bought kind) without needing to boot Windows.
