Sylvania Netbooks: Super-Portable, Affordable

LOS ANGELES -- Why lug around a heavy laptop if you don't have to. The Sylvania Netbook is lightweight and comes with an Intel (INTC - Get Report) processor, 1 GB RAM and wireless connectivity. It is perfect as an email machine, portable DVD/music player and Web cam.

Next, the Sqeezebox Boom is an all-in-one network music player, just released by Logitech (LOGI - Get Report). Gadget Grrl says don't worry if you have never set up a network device; this one is super easy. After dialing in a few numbers to connect to the network, you are up and running.

Read more about the Sqeezebox later. Let's look at the netbook.

Lugging around a heavy laptop is no fun, especially if you don't have to. Sylvania Netbooks are lightweight, 2.2 lbs, have an 80GB hard drive, 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Processor, 1 GB RAM and comes with wireless connectivity.

What I like about this small netbook is that it is perfect as an email machine and portable DVD/music player. Also, because there is a built-in Web cam, this would make a great Skype machine -- without carrying around all the extra weight of most other laptops.

You can get these loaded with either Win XP or Linux. If you've always wanted to learn Linux, this would be a good way to start. And the Win XP booted up much faster than some more souped-up laptops I've seen.

There are three USB slots, an Ethernet connection slot (in case there is no wireless network) and an expansion slot. This model also comes in four colors: pink, yellow, black and white.

Squeezebox Boom

Logitech has just released a new Squeezebox Boom, all-in-one network music player. Even if you've never set up a network device, this is super easy to set up right out of the box.

Turn on the power and the blue light, setup wizard will guide you through the steps.
