Averatec intros ultra-light 1000 series, wide screen 4200 series

Averatec 1000 and 4200

Averatec is adding a couple of portables to their lineup: the 1000 series is an ultra-portable 3.6 pound, 1-inch thick notebook with a 10.6-inch WXGA screen, Pentium M, 512MB RAM, 60-80GB HD, combo drive, 802.11b/g and 10/100 ethernet, and a combination 4-in-1 memory card reader supporting SD, MC, MMC and MS Pro. The other sibling of the new arrivals is the 4200 series, with a 1 1/4-inch thin profile housing 13.3-inch WXGA screen, either Pentium M with Centrino or Celeron-M 360 processor, 512MB RAM, 80GB HD, multi-format DVD burner, three USB 2.0 ports, S-Video out, 802.11g and 10/100 ethernet, also with the 4-in-1 media card reader. These should be rolling out for purchase sometime in May — no official word on cost but knowing Averatec, expect them to be pretty aggressively priced. Oh, and they'll be coming in a bunch of crazy colors, as well.
