SANTA ANA, Calif., Sept. 19 -- Announced today, Trigem USA and its Averatec brand has formally entered the netbook personal computer market. Aptly named the Averatec Buddy, this new companion notebook is the best solution to fulfill the growing need for an ultra portable, daily use computer.

"The timing and launch of Buddy is a welcomed addition for our customer base. Buddy as well as our all new 18.4" All-In-One desktop will clearly emphasize our commitment to our customers and our desire to be on the leading edge of these emerging computer trends," commented Darren Lee, Director of Marketing at Trigem USA. "It has been an exciting time for us, the scope and breadth of our product line really caters to what our market has been asking for," Lee further states.

Averatec used to have some really nice AMD powered 12.1" laptops for around $600-700. An old girlfriend of mine had one and loved it. this might be very interesting.

I've been thinking of picking up a small netbook for lounging after work. I get off everyday and get online. It would be nice to do that in my chair not at my desk.

Im glad to see more companies in the netbook market.  More competition means lower prices and better quality for us consumers.

Looks like another netbooks worth considering. I'm glad they went with the 10" instead of 9.
