Archos portable PCs debut

In addition to the headline-grabbing unveiling of the Windows 7-based Archos 9 tablet, Archos has also released the Archos 13 notebook, Archos 10s netbook and the Archos Digital Satchel educational PC for children on Thursday. The Archos 13 is the French company's first notebook PC, sporting a 13.3-inch, 1280x800 screen. Specs include a 10-cell battery, 120GB hard drive and 1.2GHz Intel Celeron Ultra Low Voltage CPU. Thickness is said to be just 1.08 inches, while weight is fixed at 3.3lbs.

The Archos 10s was announced back in February, and is basically a slimmer version, at just 0.87 inches, of the company's existing Archos 10. The same 10.2-inch screen is carried over, power comes from a 1.6GHz Intel Atom with 1 GB of RAM, and the 80GB hard drive is preloaded with Microsoft Windows XP Home/Family edition. The package weighs 2.2lbs.

The Digital Satchel was developed in conjunction with France's Ministry of Education, and like OLPC's Classmate PC, has a rugged design, water-resistant keyboard and an integrated carrying handle. Specs include a 9-inch screen, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, a webcam, Wi-Fi and Ethernet. The operating system is Windows XP Home Edition. It will be bundled with a one-year subscription to Maxicours, an online tutoring course that covers math, history, geography, French and foreign languages.

Pricing for the Archos 10s has not been announced, but the will launch sometime in June with three-cell and six-cell batteries. The Archos 13 is due for an end-of-summer release, and will cost the equivalent of about $800. The Archos MiniPC costs the equivalent of $340, though no ship dates have been announced.
