MPC TransPort T1300 Core Duo laptop

Marc Perton

Here's another Core Duo laptop for you to consider -- or not: the TransPort T1300 from MPC includes Bluetooth, XP Home, a 40GB drive, a 14-inch widescreen display and a CD-RW burner. Other options are a little on the skimpy side; we didn't see any WiFi listed in the specs, and the box comes standard with a mere 256MB RAM. While the base price of $1,249 might seem manageable, the idea of not including WiFi and daring to put out a new computer with less than 512MB RAM (not to mention the lack of a DVD burner in the standard config) make this one something of a non-starter for us, even if those options are available via upgrades.
