SOTEC WinBook WH 3x10
SOTEC today gave its entry-level notebooks a helping hand and introduced the WinBook WH 3x10 series. The most recent 15.4-inch system from the PC builder emphasizes price but with several useful features: every model packs a DVD burner as well as an ExpressCard 54 reader and a better-than-average 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi connection.
The top-end model is the 3513P, which is ready for Vista Home Premium with 1GB of RAM and a 1.73GHz Celeron M for $885. A simplified model, the 3313, comes with 512MB of memory and Vista Home Basic for $758. Launches outside of Japan are still unknown.
