Everex Vista Notebook

Everex today helped inaugurate this week's launch of Windows Vista by releasing the StepNote VA4101M. One of the most inexpensive notebooks yet to ship with Microsoft's new OS, the system achieves this by focusing on features over speed, using a 1.46GHz Celeron M but gaining a dual-layer DVD rewriter -- a feature rarely seen in its class. A 60GB, 5400RPM hard drive is also built-in and the system keeps the 512MB of RAM, 802.11g Wi-Fi, and VGA output offered by many of its rivals. Battery life is rated at an average of 1.5 to 2 hours of real-world use, according to its developer's estimates.

The notebook has already landed in stock at Wal-Mart for $498 without discounts when preloaded with Vista Home Basic. A slightly faster and potentially more expensive 1.6GHz Celeron M version of the computer is available at other resellers.
