netbook-navigator.jpgWell you cant blame them for trying; today, if you're not a) an Apple MacBook Air or b) an Ultrabook, you might as well squeeze back into the mobile computing hole you crawled out of. Despite appearances, the Netbook Navigator NAV13X Windows 7 Ultrabook is actually neither.

Being so close to Apple's superslim laptop design as to certainly be attracting the attentions of their lawyers, the PC can't really claim Ultrabook status either as it's not sanctioned by Intel, and is a little under-powered.

That's not to say it's that bad a machine, by netbook standards. With a 13.3 inch screen running at 1366x768 resolution, the Netbook Navigator also features a 1.86GHz dual-core Atom CPU with 2GB of RAM and a 32GB SSD, with build to-order options offering larger memory and storage.

It's a handsome design with an attractive price tag too; $600 with the Windows 7 OS, $500 without.

Dell Streak O2.jpgIf you were hoping that the promising Dell Streak iPad-rivalling tablet would have low price befitting of its small 5-inch form, we're sad to announce that that wont be the case. The Streak has been priced up over at the Carphone Warehouse, and it's not good news.

Set for a June 4th release, the Dell Streak will cost £429 unlocked, exactly the same as a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad. The handset does come free however on two contracts; £25 a month with mobile broadband or £35 a month with unlimited data and calls.

The 5 inch Android tablet looked a great alternative to an iPad, with its pocket friendly size, ability to make calls, Android 2.2 Froyo update in the pipeline and full flash support. However, the steep asking price will come as a disappointment to those hoping it would be more of a budget option to the iPad.

The Dell Streak also features a 5MP camera with LED Flash, a1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and a VGA front-facing camera.
