After busting out what they claim to be the lightest 17-inch widescreen notebook available with their 7100 series, Averatec is slimming down the opposite end of the spectrum, with their new 2200 series of 12-inch widescreen laptops. The 1.3-inch thick, 4 pound units are fairly budget-oriented, with a range of AMD Sempron and Turion 64 processors, but the 12.1-inch screen boasts a 1280 x 800 resolution, and there are plenty of other niceties. Along with the standard 802.11b/g WiFi, the notebook has three USB 2.0 ports, FireWire, a 4-in-1 memory card reader, 80GB HDD, and a dual-layer DVD/CD burner -- not bad for a such a little laptop. Prices aren't bad either, ranging from $899 to $1079, with up to 1GB of ram and XP Professional in the high end.
