Evesham Light Book Laptop
Evesham in the UK today claimed that it has produced the lightest and smallest complete laptop on the market. The new Light Book weighs only 2.6 pounds despite including an internal DVD rewriter and has a surface area only slightly larger than its 12.1-inch screen. Although this is heavier than the recently introduced, 2.2-pound Sony VAIO G, the casing holds space for more features such as fingerprint security and a four-in-one card reader. Its size also doesn't preclude ample battery life, according to Evesham. A low-voltage Core Solo helps the Light Book last for as much as 5 hours on battery power. Evesham will sell the Light Book soon for £999 ($1900) with 512MB of RAM and a 60GB hard drive.
