FlipStart ultra-compact PC

FlipStart's first product will be a self-named ultra-compact laptop, designed to compress as many full-sized features as possible into a small space. Among these are touchpad and a well-spaced QWERTY keyboard, as well as a full-fledged operating system, whether it be Windows XP Pro or Vista Business. Though the screen is only 5.6 inches, resolutions up to 1024x600 are supported. A bundled port replicator allows the use of standard keyboards and monitors; supported wireless formats include Bluetooth, 802.11b/g, and unspecified cellular broadband. A more original feature of the FlipStart is the InfoPane, a tiny, low-power screen that allows instant access to essential functions (such as e-mail) without opening the lid. Microsoft Outlook 2007 is pre-installed. Deliveries of the computer will begin by the end of the month for $1,999.
