It's hard to tell if these extendable-arm laptops will ever cross over into the real mainstream, but our choices certainly aren't dwindling. Haier's latest is a 12.1-inch ultraportable, the V60, which packs in a 1280 x 800 display, ULV Core 2 Duo processor, 945GMS chipset, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB HDD. At 1-inch thick, there's still room for a slim super-multi optical drive and ExpressCard slot, and the 1.3 megapixel webcam is always a nice touch. No word on price or availability, but at least we've got some confirmed Transformers functionality -- that G70 is just a poser.
