13- and 14-inchers with discrete GPUs

BenQ has
launched two thin-and-lights based on Intel's ULV parts, the 13.3-inch JoyBook S35 and 14-inch JoyBook S43.

The 13.3-inch unit weighs 1.6kg and BenQ is promising up to 11 hours of battery life on an 8-cell battery, or 5.5 on the standard 4-cell unit. The 14-inch S43 weighs 2.1kg, but it packs an ODD and optional Radeon HD 4330 discrete graphics. Battery life for the 14-incher is 5 hours on a 4-cell power pack.

Spec-wise there's not much to complain about. Both models feature 1366x768 LED backlit screens, a choice of single core Celeron 723/743 or Core 2 Solo SU3500 CPUs, as well as the new dual-core SU7300. You can also opt for up to 500GB of storage, and you get HDMI, draft-n wireless and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. No word on possible UMTS support though.

The new JoyBooks are already shipping in Asia, but it's unclear when (or if) BenQ will offer them in Euroland or North America.
