Everex claims its new StepNote NC1500 is the “world’s most energy efficient” notebook. Featuring a 1.5GHz VIA C7-M processor, 512MB of DDR2-533 memory, 40GB HDD, VIA UniChrome Pro integrated graphics, dual-layer DVD burner, and a 15.4-inch WXGA display. External interfaces include 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, three USB 2.0 ports, and a VGA port. Here’s the bottom line:

If you’re a touch typist or someone who has used several computers (and is therefore used to the general way a keyboard is laid out), this system will drive you to drink. But if you just need a second notebook around the house for quickly checking e-mail, getting a recipe, or showing the kids a movie, and you don’t want to spend a lot of money, the NC1500 is a decent choice
