    Value-priced laptop specialist Averatec's new model AV7170-EC1 has something new under the hood: AMD's dual-core Turion 64 X2 TL-50 processor with 2x256K of Level 2 cache. Besides offering seamless multitasking for both 32- and 64-bit operating systems and applications, the 1.6GHz CPU promises smooth operation with Microsoft's forthcoming Windows Vista.

    For now, however, the Averatec more than makes do with Win XP Media Center Edition: A 17-inch wide-aspect-ratio (1,440 by 900) AveraBrite display backed by Nvidia's GeForce Go 6100 integrated graphics joins 1GB of DDR-2/533 memory, a dual-layer DVD burner, and 100GB of 7,200-rpm Serial ATA storage to handle 3D games and entertainment software. The 7.2-pound notebook offers 802.11g wireless, Gigabit Ethernet, one FireWire and three USB 2.0 ports, PC Express and memory-card slots, and a full-sized keyboard with numeric keypad. The AV7170-EC1 will make its retail debut at Costco stores with a price tag of $1,150.
