Santech LV1 Ultraportable Announced
platform has enabled some new kids in the block to enter the
ultraportable arena. One of these guys are Italy-based Santech who have
officially introduced their LV1 series of laptops based on CULV processors.
The new Santech LV1 weighs 1.65 kg, is very thin at 1.8cm and has a 13.3
inch screen with 1366×768 pixels resolution.
It comes in two flavors, with an Intel Core 2 Solo SU 3500 1.4GHz
processor or a Core 2 Duo SU9600 1.6GHz processor, at least 2GB of RAM
(expandable up to 4GB), a 160/320/500GB HDD or 80/160 GB SSD and an
integrated Intel GMA X4500HD graphics card.
There's also a 4-cell battery that will provide a backup of up to 6
hours while an 8-cell pack can extend this to up to 12 hours of work.
Although with these specs the new Santech LV1 is a tough competitor to
other powerful ultraportables (like the Acer Aspire 3810T for example),
the 701 Euro price tag (which is some $1,000 at today's) may keep you
from actually bringing one at home.
Speaking of a release date, there is no information as to when or
whether the LV1 will actually see daylight.
