Archos unveils mini laptop

Archos gets into the netbook market to add to its existing range of media tablets.

Archos, the company known for its consumer portable media tablets, has announced a fully-fledged mini laptop.

The laptop falls firmly into the netbook category, and features a slightly larger than average 10.2in LED backlit display with 1,024 x 768 resolution. The machine is powered by an Intel Atom CPU, and Archos has plumped for a 160GB hard disk rather than an SSD.

There's also a 1.3 megapixel webcam, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, an Ethernet port, a four-in-one memory card reader, a VGA connection and three USB ports.

Along with Windows XP as the operating system, Archos has preinstalled Lotus Symphony, which provides office applications compatible with Microsoft and the open source ODF format.

It also provides photo editing software in the guise of Xnview. BitDefender antivirus and a parental filter provide system protection with the first six months offered free. Archos have also thrown in access to free music direct from the desktop via Deezer.

The Archos 10 will be available later in January with a recommended retail price of 349.
