HotHardware has found a way to get a dual-core whitebook.  It is from ASUS, based on Intel's 945 chipset, with a 15.4" screen and an integrated X1600 with 256Mb of memory.  Check out the full stats, and what HotHardware decided to put into it, after paying about $710 for the shell.

'Desktop PC owners have enjoyed this level of flexibility for years and a migration to a Notebook

platform quickly reminds us how we have taken this all for granted. Consumers are starting to demand

the same level of flexibility that they enjoy with Desktop PCs now their Laptops, however. The large

value-added resellers like Dell, HP and Sony have heard our cries and have begun offering more options

on their products, but it's still not enough for many people. Bare-bones laptops, coined "Whitebooks",

appeared on the scene promising to offer the same level of upgradeability and customization enjoyed by

desktop barebones PCs.'
