The MSI Wind is the newest model in that strange new world of subnotebooks/UMPCs that has become a very competitive market.  It is running an Intel Atom N270 1.6GHz on a Intel 945GSE and ICH7M chipset and supports 1024x600 on it's 10" LCD, so you don't have to squint to badly to see text.  HEXUS' favourite
feature has to be the keyboard, it's not full size but it is certainly bigger than the Eee's!  Read on to see how well it fares.

Legit Reviews has more information on the upcoming Toshiba Qosmio, the x305 model in this case which has some rather nice sounding components.  Built around a 3GHz Intel C2D, supporting up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM and with a pair of 200GB 7200rpm drives, the raw performance should be impressive.  Add a 17" 1680x1050 screen powered by a mysterious nVIDIA Geforce 9800M GTX graphics with 1GB RAM and you have one impressive laptop.

VIA Arena has compiled a huge list of all UMPCs that have a C7-M at their hearts.  Some you probably have not heard of, but other like the OQO and Gigabyte's M700 are a little more famous.  Their first page gives you an overview and thumbnail of the UMPCs, the second page provides you with specs.

The Inquirer had a chance to see three new Qosmio laptops, all using Toshiba's proprietary Synergistic Processor Elements, as opposed to a processor from VIA, Intel or AMD.  Drop by for a look at the hardware inside them, but we will have to wait a while before we can see the performance numbers

The Voodoo that you knew

Now that HP owns Voodoo, they have been changed into a 'lifestyle' brand and are targeted at a market similar to Apple.  The Envy 133 is the first notebook produced from this new focus, and apart from the lack of any citrus themed logos, it is a carbon fibre version of a Macbook Air.  They also have a full sized system, the Omen, which will run about $10,000 and require an invitation from Voodoo to purchase.  Otherwise; no Omen for you.  Check out the full specs at AnandTech.

While touring the ASUS booth this morning I noticed a notebook on display that didn't have a name attached to it or a PR person assigned to guard it.  It was big, it looked new and at first glace had no outstanding features.  But there was one VERY interesting little addition seen upon further review...
