Gigabyte Unveils Affordable Tablet PC Featuring Intel Atom

Gigabyte Technology, a leading maker of various computer components, this week announced its low-cost small form-factor mobile computer that will compete against systems like Asustek's Eee PC or MicroStar International's Wind. Unlike the competitors, Gigabyte M912V is a tablet PC, hence, features touch-screen. However, the novelty may not be as affordable as its rivals.

Gigabyte M912V comes with 8.9" screen with 1280*768 resolution and is based on Intel Atom N270 (1.60GHz) processor as well as Intel 945GSE and ICH7-M core-logic with integrated graphics core. The notebooks will be equipped with 1GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB hard disk drive, memory card reader, ExpressCard slot, 1.3MP webcam, Ethernet controller, Wi-Fi controller, Bluetooth controller, audio outputs, USB ports and so on. The weight of the machine is about 1.3Kg (2.86 pounds).

Not bad, the video links posted by VazaGothic really makes the PC look nice and I would like to get one.

IIRC this is going to be EU and Asia only... too bad, would have like to get one of these if the price was right...

If it retails for less than £300, I'd be somewhat interested. If it retails for less than £200, it's mine.

It's not a tablet - it's a convertable. Sign me up if someone ever decides on a tablet in this sort of size/weight.
And how affordable is affordable?

I'm guessing less than $1000 but more than $500.

Are they expecting me to work on it with magnifying glass, or what :eek: ?

I think i would get this one instead of Asus Eee, if the price is right :)

Edit; just to be lame; woohooo, post number one!
