Philips trots out X200 "longneck" notebook

Philips X200 Notebook

Philips today quietly launched the X200, its more distinctive take on the notebook. Similar in some respects to Dialogue Technology's FlyBook, the X200 "longneck" has an adjustable neck that can lift the 12-inch widescreen LCD up and towards the user for a more natural viewing angle or for particularly cramped quarters; it can cover the keyboard altogether for watching movies using the dual-layer DVD rewriter, says Philips.

To support the media center claim, the Dutch firm still pushes for quick performance for its size with a 1.73GHz Core Duo and 1GB of RAM. A 100GB hard drive and a 1.3-megapixel webcam help with media duties. The X200 ships with Vista Home Premium for $1,700 after tax in the UK. Availability elsewhere in Europe is very likely, though a North American version is questionable. [via PC World]
