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.

  1. So is Intel removing restrictions on using Atom processors with larger screens? I noticed Zareason is selling an 11.6 inch model.

    1. I don’t know about the size restrictions, but I do know that that laptop has a fullsize keyboard which removes the annoyance netbooks usually bring.

  2. Does anyone want a 13.3″ with netbook specs when you can get a UL30, Acer 3810, or other for just a little bit more?

  3. If this product is a success we could well see other OEMs coming up with their 12+ inch models.

    Netbooks are growing, so I believe if the costs can be kept down, people would not mind carrying a lite device on their bag packs.

    80% of the computer users never use their hardware to the fullest so if its light on the wallet and lite on the bag, people are going to LIKE IT!!
