At only 3.8lbs the Averatec N3400 13.3" ultraportable sits at the heavy end of the netbook spectrum but it also houses a dual core Intel T3400, which will give you noticeably more power than an Atom.  Intel's GMA4500 graphics
powers the 1280x800 display so don't expect the power of a gaming notebook but in Tech Spot's testing found it powerful enough to happily run Windows 7.  That seems fairly impressive for an $800 dollar ultra portable, especially as there is very little in the

Dell has been making laptops for quite a while now, building up a reputation for the choices they offer for configuration.  The new x41 is no different, offering choices on everything from the screen resolution to the CPU.  At 4.3lbs with a 6 cell battery this is not a huge laptop but with a Core 2 processor inside it is not a netbook.  Ars Technica took one of the more powerful versions of the x41 out for a spin, drop by and see how it went

AnandTech grabbed three of the most powerful laptops on the market, all powered by the new mobile Core i7 Clarksfield processors.  Two of the three offer a single GTX 280M
to provide graphical power; one offers you the chance to have an SLI laptop.  The benchmarks are impressive and the prices even more so, the only low numbers come from the battery lifespans.  If you need mobile gaming power, these are the laptops you should be looking at.

I have had a slight tip off on this for a while but didn't think the information was strong enough to report on yet, but enough people are verifying the rumors that I thought it was worth a post.  My first indication of this news was an insider pointing me to this article on Yahoo! Games website that claims executives were showing off an NVIDIA Tegra-powered Nintendo handheld at Gamescon:

Great value to let you game on the go

The ASUS G51Vx 15" Gaming Notebook will only set you back $1000, at least with the setup that Techgage used.  Sporting a Republic of Gamers logo on the outside, the interior holds a 2GHz C2D P7350, 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2-800 @ 6-6-6-18 and a GTX 260M 1GB
all work towards giving you serious mobile performance.  Battery life tops 2 hours, enough to get some good fragging in even without a plug handy.

Even with years of past models to catch up on, ASUS is soldiering along attempting to produce a wider variety of notebooks than motherboards.  The latest review of one of the many ASUS mobility products comes from InsideHW, a member of the Versatile Performance series, the F50Sv.  It is a 16" model with a 1366x768 LCD, hiding an Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 on a SiS 671DX+968
chipset with an NVIDIA GeForce GT 210M
to power the graphics.   While that mix of components will not win it any pri

These laptops embody the opposite side of the mobile scale to netbooks.  They are heavy, they are hot and they will eat a battery in under an hour; they are the Core i7 based Clarksfield series.  The Core i7 820QM and 720QM
will be showing up in notebooks soon and not just from extreme boutique builders like Falcon Northwest and Alienware, one is even speced at the $1400 mark.  Once Arrandale hits we might see them in a more portable form, but until then drop by ExtremeTech for a look at some Cl
