Announcing the updated liliputer list/database
A few months ago I put together a “comprehensive” list of low cost ultraportable laptops. But a funny thing happens to comprehensive lists. They go out of date. Quickly. Rather than try to keep updating a static web page, I’ve decided to launch something new, and hopefully more useful: a liliputer database.
You can always find the Liliputer database/comparison chart by clicking the Liliputers link in the navbar. It’s sandwiched between the Forums and Store links, which I also hope you’ll take the time to check out.
I’m not going to pretend the database contains every single tiny laptop on the market or coming soon. But as of today, it holds 42 such laptops, only a dozen of which are Asus Eee PC models. And the list is growing every day.
Best of all, since I’ve replaced the old list with a database, you can organize the list by category. The implementation isn’t perfect. Since columns are arranged in numerical or alphabetical order, for example, if you arrange the computers by CPU speed, the 1.6GHz models will be listed before the 300MHz models. But the database is a work in progress. I’ll do my best to keep it up to date and usable. I hope you find it a valuable resource. And if you see errors or omissions, please let me know!
