    After a few delays, the Everex CloudBook CE1200V ultra-mobile PC is finally available for purchase through Wal-Mart for $399. The CE1200V model weighs two pounds and provides five hours of battery life, according to Everex. It features the VIA C7-M ULV processor at 1.2GHz, 512MB of DDR2 memory, a 30GB hard disk drive, the VIA UniChrome Pro IGP graphics, an integrated 1.3-megapixel web camera, built-in stereo speakers and last but not least 7-inch widescreen TFT which boasts 800x480 WVGA resolution. This small budget notebook incorporates an 802.11b/g wireless connection, an Ethernet port, two USB ports, a 4-in-1 media card reader, and a DVI-I output. The CloudBook runs gOS V2 Rocket operating system with a lot of free software from Google, Mozilla, Skype, OpenOffice.org and more.

    Cool, at last a worthy competitor for the Asus Eee PC.
    Look, this one has a proper hard-drive and a better card reader!
    Hope they start selling this to Europe too...

    I know it's cheap, but I'm not so keen on the big gap between the screen and the keyboard. I guess it probably elevates the screen without making the machine bigger, but personally prefer the appearance of the Eee PC. But competition is a good thing of course, so well done to Everex.

    They basically took advantage of the battery which would otherwise stick out :)

    I don't see why XP wouldn't work, probably be fine.

    Probably not natively, but if it's like the Eee PC someone will mod it to work. Doubt it will be too nippy though.

    having seen some reviews for this the main drawback is a poor quality screen apparently and an awkward location of the mouse scroll.

    yeah, we just love being ripped off, that's why they keep doing it.

    Good for cooling, fishing for pencils, and checking out the secretary's skirt.
