Broadcom has taken the wraps off its single-chip Crystal HD media accelerator for netbooks, promising full 1080p playback and hardware Flash acceleration in a low-power chip.
An innovative mod for the Dell Mini 9 brings dual touch-screen displays to the device - with the ultimate aim to create a fully portable dual-display tablet.
A list of compatible hardware has been released for Chromium OS, the open-source version of Google's cloud-based Chrome OS.
Asus has announced the Eee PC 1201T, which ditches Intel's Atom in favour of rival AMD's dual-core Congo MV40 processor - but can it even be classed as a netbook?
Google's netbook-oriented operating system, Chrome OS, has enjoyed an official launch event - and while it won't be shipping until next year, the code is already available.
Asus has announced that the Eee Keyboard will now not ship until early next year - although it's using the delay to upgrade the 5" resistive touchscreen to a capacitive model.
Support for low-power Atom processors - at the heart of many a hackintosh - appears to be back in the latest developer build of Mac OS X 10.6.2 - build 10C525.
VIA has announced a new Nano range - the Nano 3000 series - which it hopes will challenge Intel's dominance of the netbook market, offering improved performance over the Atom.
Apple's still-unconfirmed tablet appears to be selling well despite absolutely no information leaving the company.
Acer is launching a Windows 7-based netbook under the Ferrari brand, and the specifications are anything but pedestrian with an AMD CPU and XGP support.
Dell has revealed images of its next Adamo laptop - the Adamo XPS - and it's looking neat, with a thickness that puts Apple's MacBook Air to shame.
