If you thought Tablet PCs were in style here at CES, well, you'd be
right. Most any non-traditional notebook
is getting a look, and that
includes Litl's new Webbook. Debuting at the show this week, this
machine is described as an "easy-to-use Internet computer for the home
that blends the best of the Web with high-quality TV-like viewing."
It's more like a slate PC than anything else, and while these types of
PCs have been around (and not selling very well) for years, Apple
rumored involvement in the sector has seemingly re-sparked the
interest. The device has a 12" display, a keyboard and a form factor
that fits well with couch-based Web surfers and video watchers.
As for specs? You'll get a 1.6GHz Atom CPU, HDMI output, 2GB of
storage, 1GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, USB 2.0 and a headphone port.
Unfortunately, the $699 price tag may be a bit steep for most, but we
can't deny that this one looks good. Really good.

Using the power of the Intel ® Atom (TM) processor, the webbook makes the web simple, engaging, and fun.
