Got a spare netbook and some spare time? If you’ve been hooked up into the latest trend of downloading Windows 7 RC and testing it out, then it looks like here’s an opportunity to do the same, but on your netbook. John from Gizmodo has written a nice post on how you can install the recently released Windows 7 RC on just about any netbook.

The main problem encountered so far has been the fact that netbooks don’t have a disc drive and their small capacity SSDs don’t offer much help neither. The solution you’ll see if you hit the link below is that you’ll need to boot from a USB drive of at least 4GB of free memory and do make sure that your netbook has at least 8GB free from its SSD!

By the way, you’ll need to have already downloaded a copy of Windows 7 RC before you can begin!

We’re very jealous, the folks over at Pocket-Lint recently got to play with the Acer Aspire Revo nettop which should already be out in the shops near you (since 5th of May). The Aspire Revo nettop is unique as its one of the first of its class to be equipped with new Nvidia ION chips allowing its Intel Atom powered core to display 1080p footage as well as playing games in 3D.

As you will see in the pictures, if you opt for the third option with a pricetag of £299.99 (options here). You’ll get to mount your Aspire Revo onto the back of your PC monitor using its VESTA mount and receive a wireless bar shaped game pad (will cost about £50 on its own) which looks much like that of the Wii’s.

This is definitely the world’s first. The Spanish technology company iUnika announced last week a series of lightweight and eco-friendly netbooks. While it must be admitted that these are not suited for those keen on gaming, the GYY netbooks would just about do everything else the average user requires.

To hit the European market this summer, in June. The netbooks come with a low energy demanding 400MHz CPU, 128MB of RAM, an 8-inch screen a max resolution of 800×400 and a 64GB SSD drive. Although the iUnika GYY netbooks don’t seem to be capable of pushing out much juice, one thing is for sure, it does have quite a large capacity of memory for a netbook.

We will still need to confirm whether this will be a Japan exclusive. But for 398,000 Yen (that’s €3080, £2758 or $4180) the latest in technology 19.5mm x 25.5mm Toshiba Dynabook SS RX2/WAJ sports a Core 2 Duo SU9400 (1.40GHz) processor, 3GB of RAM, Intel GS45 Express, DVD Super Multi and a 12.1” WXGA LCD and a 512 GB SSD (may be that’s what the price is for?). Of course, along with this price tag you will also get WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, etc. According to Toshiba, this massive 512 GB SSD runs eight times faster than a 5400rmp 2.5” HDD.

Designed for phones like the iPhone, iPod Touch and other popular mobiles like BlackBerrys, the iZel cell phone stand is a multifunctional mobile phone stand. Great for supporting landscape and portrait mode, just snap here and snap there and you’ve got a stand in seconds. Though the iZel is made of grippy material, it still looks as if the iPhone in the video can easily fall off, thus I’m not too convinced in that respect.
