Kilo and a half

So, what do you get for your cash? The X400 weighs in at 1.5kg, has an Intel Centrino SU3500 CPU, a 14 inch 16:9 screen and half a gig of storage.

A non-too-generous 2GB of RAM is bundled in, along with 2 USB ports, de rigeur 1.3 MP webcam and, drum roll, a bag.

The cheaper X400-074UK has a 320GB HDD, a SU2700 CPU and no optical drive.
