A slightly bigger, wide-aspect-ratio screen -- boosted from 15.2 to 15.4 inches diagonally -- and an easier-to-read, non-translucent keyboard (with white letters on black keys, instead of vice versa) help differentiate WinBook's new W Series slimline notebooks from previous models on the outside. Intel's new Centrino technology with faster Wireless Pro 2200 (802.11b/g) networking is on the inside.
The first of the new models, the 6.3-pound WinBook W320, costs $1,599 with a 1.5GHz Pentium M processor, 512MB of DDR333 memory, a 60GB hard disk, and a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive. The 1,280 by 800-resolution display is backed by Intel's integrated Extreme Graphics 2; Ethernet, modem, IEEE 1394 FireWire, and three USB 2.0 ports are standard.
