Elonex is adding a second ultraportable, ultra-cheap laptop to its Elonex One range, even though the first model hasn't started shipping in volume yet.
The original Elonex One made headlines when it was announced in February, with the company describing it as the UK's first sub-£100 laptop. The £99 laptop includes a 7in screen, a 1GB flash-based hard drive, wireless access and a rubbberised keyboard, and was expected to be widely available this summer. However, deliveries have only just started, according to a note on Elonex's site. The company claims it has received 200,000 orders, and hopes to fulfil them in time for the start of the new school term in September.
Details of when the second model will become available are scarce, but Elonex has provided the specs. Like the original model, the One T+ includes a 7in display, but the new version looks more like a traditional laptop, with most of the components located underneath the keyboard, rather than behind the screen.
Other features include 1GB of solid-state storage, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi support, three USB 2.0 ports, VGA output and an SD Card slot. The Elonex One T+ will cost £129.
