The Archos 133pc is currently listed as "coming soon" on all of the company's online stores, except one. The first bite at the cherry is being offered to the home crowd, with the Atom-powered, high definition portable computer now available at the French store.

As the name might suggest, the Archos 133pc sports a 13.3 inch 1366 x 768 WXGA display, more than enough to take 720p high definition videos within its stride. No point in having HD video without HD audio, in this case provided courtesy of Intel high def audio and a couple of quality stereo speakers. It's powered by Intel's 1.66GHz Atom D510 Dual Core processor, supported by 1GB of DDR2 memory and 160GB SATA HDD.

Communication and connectivity needs are met with 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, a media card reader and a threesome of USB 2.0 ports. The notebook comes with a 1.3MP integrated webcam and built-in microphone, a six cell battery, weighs 1.6kg and runs on Windows 7 Home Premium.

The 13.1 x 9.1 x 1.06 inch Archos 133pc is listed at EUR399.98 (about US$490, although actual US price is not know at present) and is available now, if you are lucky enough to live in France.
