SlashGear Week in Review – Week 33 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 33 2009

The end of the week is here again and here we go with a rundown of some of the coolest stories we have seen this week. Monday marked the day the Asus Eee PC 1101HA went on sale in America. The rig is a netbook in name only; the beastie is expensive at about $430. The same day Gigabyte quietly unveiled the T1028X convertible touchscreen netbook. The device has a screen resolution of 1366 x 768 and other than the screen, the rest of the machine is typical netbook fare.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

Well another week has come and gone as time steadily marches on and like every other week here on SlashGear, it has been a busy one. Poor old Toshiba took the old adage "if you can’t beat them, join them" seriously on Monday and announced that it would be launching its own Blu-ray player by the end of 2009.

Gigabyte Booktop M1022 netbook gets video unboxing

Gigabyte's Booktop M1022 is the first netbook to offer something you'd more usually find on a full-sized notebook: a docking station for desk use.  Packing an Intel N270 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard-drive, the M1022 might not be your first port of call for "desktop replacement" duties, but Gigabyte obviously think there's a target market who get sufficiently tired of plugging and unplugging monitor, keyboard, mouse and network cables to spend the extra on the Booktop.  Over at EEE-PC.de they've first unboxed the M1022, and then made it pose in a photoshoot.
