There are differing models of the Asus UL50-V Laptop, one Core 2 Duo and one a Celeron but both have nVIDIA's G210M with 512MB GDDR3 VRAM
powering the 1366x768 15.6" LCD. The one option that seems to be lacking is ability to choose an SSD, all they offer are 5400RPM drives in three different sizes. The model that R&B Mods tested utilizes the C2D Su7300 which did not fare well against the C2D T6400 based Samsung R720 but it comes in as a fair deal at the ~$800 price mark.

While I don't profess to know as much about this major Apple product line revision as I did in the previous instance where NVIDIA invaded the entire mobile product line, what I DO know this time might be just as interesting. After checking with quite a few sources I can say without a doubt that the upcoming Apple tablet device being announced on Wednesday will not have any version of the NVIDIA Tegra product powering it.

The new Eee PC 1101HA sports an 11.6" screen at 1366×768 and is powered by an Atom Z520 @ 1.33GHz, 1GB of DDR2 memory and a 160GB hard drive, relatively common for smaller sized mobiles. Interestingly, it supports overclocking; Tech Spot had it running at 1.74GHz stably. You still shouldn't expect huge results from an Atom processor but including overclocking in a Seashell, or any other notebook for that matter, is going to garner you some fans.

The Asus UL30A is another example of Intel's CULV mobile PC; not quite a full laptop but more than a netbook. The screen is 13.3", the keyboard is 'chiclet' style, with well spaced out keys emerging from underneath the metallic body of the CULV and the trackpad is a series of holes punched into the body below the keyboard. Inside you will find a a Core 2 Duo at 1.3 GHz, Intel's X4500MHD IGP, 4 GB of DDR3 and an installation of the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium.
If you need a portable computer on the small side that still has the power of a dual core CPU,
