Liliputing is a news and information web site covering mobile technology with an emphasis on low cost, ultraportable computers including notebooks, netbooks and tablets.

Once upon a time you had to pay a lot of money to get a portable computer weighing less than 3 pounds. Today there are hundreds of computers matching this description, many selling for as little as $200 to $300. What changed is that people started to put as much value on price and portability as they did on performance. Just because you want a thin and light laptop doesn’t mean you need it to play bleeding edge games or have the fastest processor or highest resolution display. While it’s nice to have it all, it’s also nice to have choices, and the low end of the ultraportable market is now filled with budget devices that fit many people’s portable computing needs.

You can find the latest news, reviews, and bargains on mobile devices on Liliputing, as well as software tips and other advice for getting the most out of your gadgets.

  1. This NYTimes story may interest you:

    By the way, after grumbling about blubber books (and dreaming of a VERY light netbook, it looks like I will be buying a fat Asus Eee PC 1000HE as my first netbook. The reason: the sudden death of my desktop. Unless I find the small displays impractical for serious writing (three book contracts), I plan to make due with my ancient 12-inch Powerbook–now hooked up to my printer–and the soon to be acquired netbook as the travel machine. In practice, travel won’t be much further than a few libraries. Doubtless I shall look to your site for tips on how to add Linux (which distribution?) for a dual-boot. I look to Linux as much as a hobby as anything else.
