Averatec has chosen the start of a holiday weekend to launch the 2575, its latest 12-inch ultraportable. The notebook adopts a more serious all-black design than some earlier models but is ultimately focused on offering as complete a system as possible: the stock system ships with 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, and a DVD burner. The company refrains from mentioning clock speeds but incorporates an AMD Turion 64 X2 to provide dual cores without the higher costs of some Intel processors.
In addition to its core components, the 2575 also sports a small 4-in-1 card reader and a 1.3-megapixel webcam mounted into the lid. Averatec equips the system with Vista Home Premium and says it should be available today online and in shops for $1,100.
