Archos 13 Notebook

Archos 13 is the first notebook PC from the company. However, they’ve debuted with a really nice machine. The first interesting feature is the use of Intel ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) processor, which gives the device top-notch battery timings. Here’s a complete list of known specifications:

  • Intel Celeron ULV 1.20 GHz Processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 160GB Hard Disk
  • On-board Intel GMA X4500 Graphics
  • 13.3 inches LED-Backlit Display at 1280×800
  • 10-cell battery
  • Weight: 1.5KG, Thickness: 1.08 inches

These specifications are a little low for traditional notebooks, however, the system does give the advantage of increased battery life. The low voltage processor and the included 10 cell battery is expected to double the battery life than available for most notebooks. Also, very low weight and thickness makes it ideal for frequent travelers. This product is intendent for people on the go for whom netbooks are too slow to handle.
