The Flybook V5 from Tennessee-based Dialogue Technology Corp is one of the smallest Vista-capable laptops available (its manufacturers claim it is the smallest). The laptop weighs about 1,200g and is slightly larger than a sheet of A5 paper at 235mm x163mm.
Within its 30mm-thick case it packs an Intel Core 2 Duo ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) processor running at 1.2GHz, 2GB of Ram that can be expanded to 4GB, and an 80GB hard drive. It has built-in Bluetooth and 802.11 a/b/g wireless networking, together with an HSDPA datacard and a 1.3 megapixel camera.
The one feature it lacks is a mouse-pointer: that's because the 8.9-inch WXGA screen is touch-sensitive. Dialogue claims up to five hours battery life for the notebook. Prices range from $1,700 (£850) to $2,000.
