We often wonder how nice it would be if we could actually have control over the type of hardware we want on a notebook. Wouldn't it be good if you could just purchase a notebook with the option to upgrade either the memory, processor, hard disk drive or all of them as and when you feel like it? Traditionally, you cannot do that on any notebook. Most of these hardware come pre-installed in the factory and there's no way you could upgrade (especially the processor) unless you perform some major surgery on it.
However, times are a-changing and we now have an upgradable notebook in our hands. Called the i-Buddie 4, this 3.2kg notebook by Elitegroup packs more punch than its weight. Rather than positioned as a 'pure' notebook, the i-Buddie 4 is a desktop replacement, as what we would prefer to call it, "a portable desktop".
