Yet Another Eee PC Challenger!!!

Taiwanese manufactuerer Elitegroup Computer Systems unveiled its G10IL mininotebook, which will feature Intel’s new Atom processors and either an 8.9- or 10.2-inch screen. Like the MSI Wind prototype Crave spied earlier this month, the ECS G10IL features an unfortunate name and a fetching design: clean, glossy, and white. At first glance, it looks like some sort of mini-MacBook crossed with a Sony VAIO. – Cnet.com

The ECS G10IL has three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet and modem jacks, WLAN and Bluetooth, and a 4-in-1 card reader. Key for any ubermobile device, the G10IL provides mobile broadband; in this case, 7.2Mbps HSPA. Other specs listed on the ECS site include the choice of Windows XP or Linux, up to 2GB of RAM in the lone DIMM slot, an integrated Webcam, either an solid state drive or spinning hard drive, and a 4- or 6-cell battery.

A release date is unknown, but Laptoping.com reports that ECS will talk pricing next month. – Cnet.com

Great because I really liked the Eee PC, but for some stupid reason it wouldn’t work with my wireless network. I even bought another one from Amazon.com and both didn’t work. The funny thing is that it worked with my local coffee shops WiFi. I had to retun both. So, now I’m looking for an Eee PC knock off for the same price. This one lookas cool or the MSI Wind, but I hope they’re not only in Europe. Stupid, lucky Europeans, they always get every thing first and cheaper!
