Archos 13 packs netbook specs into a 13 inch laptop
Archos is a company better known for making portable media players than notebooks. but the company has put out a couple of Intel Atom powered netbooks over the last few years. The latest notebook from Archos is a bit bigger, but it still uses netbook-like components.
The Archos 13 features a 13.3 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and an Intel Atom processor. But it does stand out from the netbook crowd a bit by using a dual core Intel Atom D510 processor. That chip is usually reserved for desktops rather than laptops.
The notebook has 1GB of DDR2 of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, 802.1b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, and a 6 cell battery. It has a VGA port, but no HDMI. The laptop weighs about 3.5 pounds. The Archos 13 runs Windows 7 Starter Edition.
The Archos is available in France for €399.98 or about $485 US.
