According to Register Hardware, the pair of dinky, wallet-friendly lappies will come with a choice of 4GB solid state drive or 160GB standard hard drive, and either SuSE Linux or Windows XP as the operating system.
There's also a Linux-based Instant On mode which enables users to browse the web, listen to music, check email and, er, video conference without booting into the main OS.
All models have an Atom processor, up to 1.5GB of memory, Wi-Fi and Ethernet. Bluetooth will be available as an optional extra. Prices are expected to start at around £300.
