First Megapixel Laptop


Little-known laptop manufacturer, Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) has stolen the march on some of the laptop companies by announcing the first ever notebook with a built-in 1.3-megapixel camera.

The ECS G220 is an ultraportable machine (weighing less than 2kg) with a 12.1-inch screen. The inclusion of the camera is intended for use as a webcam for video conferences – or (and let’s face it, this is what you’ll really use it for) just for taking pictures of yourself looking busy and important.

Other features include 802.11g wireless and a memory card reader. The range is available in a number of different specifications based around Intel’s Pentium M processors. The graphics card is nothing to write home about (integrated Intel 855GME) but that’s about par for the course on an ultraportable.

No pricing info yet, but you can take a look at the machines here.
