  • Battle of the ultraportable laptops

    Tablet PCs and traditional laptops have been squeezing the life out of the netbook market, but they aren’t dead yet. Now a million miles away from the stunted, plasticky ZX Spectrum-alikes of yore they’ve got powerful, dual core processors and improved keyboards. There’s even an Apple take on the genre…
