$299 RazorBook 400 portable Internet appliance


“The day has finally arrived and the 3K RazorBook 400 is now hitting the US market. We just lowered our MSRP to $299 as part of this exciting announcement. There has been a lot of comparison from bloggers to the Asus eeePC due to its similar 7-inch LCD form factor. The 3K RazorBook 400 is a unique product that was designed as a low-cost ($299) portable Internet appliance, not to replace your home PC or Notebook computer,” said Dan Jacobs, CEO, 3K Computers.

Okay, I won’t compare this to the Eee, then. I will tell you, however, that it’s a small laptop that weighs two pounds, has a 4GB solid-state drive, 7-inch  800×480 display, 400MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, Linux, and a “full-size” keyboard.

Full-size keyboard? Look at the size of that dude’s hand!

Anyhoo, the price is okay — at $299, it probably won’t break the bank. It’s got twice the storage space but half the processor speed of the laptop that must not be named, so keep that in mind. Dimensons for the RazorBook are 8.25″ L x 5.5″ W x 1.25″ H versus Voldemort’s 8.86″ L x 6.30″ W x 1.4″ H, so it’s got a smaller footprint.

Again, no way that’s a full-size keyboard. Boot up time is eight seconds, though, which is nice. It’s available here if you’re interested.
