WinBook J4 300 3.06


The WinBook J4 300 3.06, with its black-and-silver color scheme and nicely rounded edges, is stylish and boasts a crisp 15-inch SXGA+ display driven by an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 graphics card.

The warranty is one year on parts and labor. On-site service is not available. Toll-free technical support is 8:00a–9:00p eastern time M–F.

WinBook J4 731

Inexpensive; four USB 1.1 ports; one FireWire port.

WinBook J4 732


Notebook buyers who can live with 1 to 2 hours of battery life are snapping up portables built around Intel's desktop PC processors (as opposed to Intel's mobile CPUs); this yields fine performance and saves up to $250 in the bargain. One of the first...

WinBook Hits a Record Low Price


You won't find much cutting-edge technology in the WinBook J4 731 notebook, but check out the cutting-edge price: $799 direct—and only $699 if you take advantage of the short-term rebate. The bulky J4, built around a 2.0-GHz Celeron processor, is sure...

WinBook J4 C2.0


The WinBook J4 C2.0 is the largest notebook in our value category, weighing in at more than 8 pounds. With all that weight, you might expect a lot more than you actually get. For example, the J4 C2.0 shipped with only a CD-ROM drive; several other...
