Serial rebadger, and self-professed home of the "world's fastest laptop," MALIBAL has added two new lines to their collection, the Bodhi and the Lotus. Nothing groundbreaking, but they are nicely specced, with Core Duo
processors and integrated 1.3 megapixel webcams. The Bodhi sports a 14-inch 1280 x 768 screen, 4-in-1 card reader, WiFi/Bluetooth combo, dual-layer DVD burner, and options for up to 2GB of RAM and a 160GB SATA HDD. Mere integrated graphics, and the 3 hours of batter life is just average, but they're fairly compact at 4.85 pounds. The Lotus bumps the screen to 15.4-inches 1280 x 800, and the weight to 5.73 pounds. It can handle those snazzy 2.16GHz Core Duo chips, but the series otherwise mirrors its release buddy. Both laptop lines are on sale now, with the Bodhi starting at $1099, and the Lotus dropping for $1115.
