As much as tablet fans might like you to think the netbook market is dead, the netbook ranks continue to grow as folks want a cheap rig that has a keyboard and standard form. Gigabyte has unveiled a new netbook called the Q2005 that gets dual-core Intel N550 power.
The Q2005 is a standard netbook form factor device so you get no fancy convertible screens here. You do get that N550 CPU that should provide decent power for the machine. The screen is a 10.1-inch unit with a resolution of 1024 x 600. The lack of HD resolution may be a deal killer for some.
Other features include 1GB of DDR3 RAM that can be upgraded to 2GB, 250GB of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 is optional, and the machine gets a 0.3MP camera. Power can come from a 3-cell battery or an optional 6-cell unit. Gigabyte does pack a good memory card reader inside the rig. The reader is an 8-in-1 unit rather than just reading SD cards.
