  • $98 Netbook with WiFi!



    Specs:
    • 7″ screen (800480)
    • MIPS based processor
    • WiFi
    • 1GB flash storage
    • Linux
    • 3 USB ports
    • Ethernet
    • SDHC card reader
    • audio in and out
    • skype
    • Firefox
    • Abiword for word processing


    It's running a modified Chinese Linux version. No DSP (digital something processor?). Supposedly about 3+ hours battery life from a full charge.

    Watch the video at UberGadget!

    Ooooh. I can't wait until that thing is available in the US. Gonna try to snatch one up so I can take it on trips without worrying about destroying my AspireOne.

    Gosh...this guy is pressuring that saleswoman...eesh.

    Very interesting and informative video reviewer. It's not much compared to my netbook, but it'll be great for basic word processing and some minor web surfing.

    Note: You'll notice netbooks with very similar shells and keyboards to HP miniNote, Acer AspireOne, etc. That's because all of the notebooks and such you buy in the U.S. is produced by only a few companies in Asia (Quanta in China, ECS in Taiwan, etc.).

      Watch the video, about 1-2 mins in, they show a black one that is the $98 netbook. The ones above are slightly more expensive models from HiVision.
