What are they? HCL’s entry-level MiLeap X and the high-end MiLeap Y Series laptops. The two new models, with 7-inch screens, are ultra-light and weigh less than 1 kg.

What features do they have? Both models have network ports, are Wi-Fi ready, have the option for a data card and are available with GUI-enabled Linux OS, which, the company says, it will support with a 24-hour helpline. The higher end MiLeap Y Series is powered by the latest Intel Ultra Mobile Platform and Microsoft’s Vista Home Premium. The MiLeap Y Series incorporates a unique navigational pad that offers multiple navigational features such as touch screen, thumboard, stylus, keyboard, mouse and one-touch buttons, making it a highly intuitive product. The X Series laptops are available in blue, white and pink colours.

How much does it cost? MiLeap X Series costs Rs 13,990 and MiLeap Y Series comes for Rs 33,990.

What’s missing? The entry-level laptop does not have a hard disk and runs on Linux, though Microsft Vista can be added in the higher-end Y Series.
