Netbook Navigator unveils the Nav 13X "Ultrabook"
In addition to launching the dual-core Nav 10T Windows 7 slate earlier this month, the New Jersey-based tech company Netbook Navigator has now introduced its first Ultrabook, called Nav 13X. Considering the name of the outfit, one might say that this is perhaps the closest the manufacturer has ever come to having a netbook in its portfolio (because the rest of products at the maker’s online store are actually tablets). The Nav 13X is now available for pre-order and has a starting price of $499.99.
Reportedly, this new portable device measures just 0.6-inches at its thickest point and will come equipped with a Cedar Trail SoC (which is not exactly an Ultrabook CPU). The laptop apparently sports an Intel Atom N2800 central processing unit that incorporates two physical cores (4 threads) clocked at 1.86GHz and the integrated GMA 3650 video card for 3D graphics acceleration. Moreover, users are provided with a 13.3-inch LED backlit widescreen display which offers a maximum supported resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels.
According to the product’s specifications sheet, the Nav 13X packs up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 32GB to 128GB (adds another $400 to the price) solid-state drive, two integrated speakers and a 4100mAh Lithium-Ion battery. Other features supposedly include Wireless LAN 802.11n and Bluetooth 2.1 adapters accompanied by two USB 2.0 ports, an SD card slot for expanding the storage capacity and a 1.3MP built-in front-facing web camera for making video calls.
Weighing 2.9lbs (approximately 1.3kg), Netbook Navigator’s latest thin and light portable PC will reportedly be available in silver (with a black keyboard). Customers can choose among Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate OS; the operating system is not included in the above mentioned starting price, though.
