Hi-Grade has added an eye-catching pink Notino to its line-up of laptops for fashionistas.
The £499 Notino W5800 runs Vista Home Basic off its Intel Core 2 Duo 1.6GHz processor and 2GB of DDR 2 RAM. You get a 160GB hard disk and a DVD-RW drive in the standard £459 version. Other storage capacities range from 80GB to 320GB.
The Notino W5800 has a 15.4in LCD widescreen display in a 16: 10 aspect ratio designed for DVD playback. The native screen resolution is 1,280x800.
The W5800 sports all the usual connections: wireless b an g Wi-Fi, Ethernet, three USB 2.0 connectors, VGA-out, microphone and microphone jack, RJ45 connectors, an ExpressCard 34 slot, a 7-in-1 card reader slot and, bizarrely, a floppy disk drive slot.
Covered by a year-long collect and return warranty, the Hi-Grade Notino comes with Vista Home Basic in its standard configuration, but can be bought with Vista Home Premium or Business instead.
It weighs 2.7kg and comes in a black carry bag.
