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.

Gigabyte T1028X touchscreen netbook gets video unboxing

The great thing about only spotting a new device when it launches is that you don't have to wait too long until you can see if unboxed and in action.  Gigabyte's TouchNote T1028X convertible touchscreen netbook only crossed our paths yesterday, but already Liliputing have their review unit in to play with.

Gigabyte T1028X touchscreen netbook quietly debuts

Gigabyte have quietly updated their convertible touchscreen netbook range with the T1028X, a slightly re-fettled version of the T1028M they announced back at CeBIT 2009.  Among the key changes are a switch in processor, moving up to the Atom N280 1.66GHz CPU paired with a faster FSB, and a higher-resolution display, now running at 1,366 x 768.

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. That had to be hard to swallow for the execs who bet it all on HD DVD only to be defeated by Blu-ray. Also on Monday the slick HP Mini 5101 netbooks tipped up starting from $399. I'm not convinced we need another netbook on the market right now personally.

Gigabyte Booktop M1022 netbook review

Gigabyte Booktop M1022 netbook review

If there's one segment in consumer electronics where it's hard to stand out, it's netbooks.  The race to the bottom line, together with strict rules from component suppliers regarding maximum specifications, means that the hardware of most machines follows the same, tired pattern.  To differentiate, some brands have gone for super-slimline designs, or extended battery life; Gigabyte, meanwhile, have taken a more unusual route.  Their Booktop M1022 netbook comes complete with a desktop docking station; our friends over at Mobilx.hu were good enough to send us a review unit to try out.

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.

Gigabyte Technology just revealed their latest notebook offering and this one is a bit different, to say the least. It's called the Peggy's Cove (or, it's code-named as such, for now) and features an Intel-design that runs on the Montevina platform.

Gigabyte T1028M Touchnote gets unboxed

We've been talking about the T1028M Touchnote for awhile now, but nothing gets us more excited than full, genuine unboxing and that's precisely what we came across today. The Gigabyte T1028M Touchnote got its moment in the sun today with a full unboxing over at UMPCPortal. This portable seemed to pretty much live up to expectations, though there was a disappointment factor when it came to the battery.

Gigabyte M1028 CafeBook touchscreen netbook clears FCC

Gigabyte M1028 CafeBook touchscreen netbook clears FCC

Gigabyte's M1028 convertible touchscreen netbook has cleared the FCC, complete with Intel Atom N280 1.66GHz processor, up to 2GB of RAM, a maximum 250GB HDD storage and optional 3G and/or WiMAX data connections.  Listed under the product name Gigabyte M1028 CafeBook, rather than "Touch Note" as we've seen before, the manual also lists the display as 8.9 rather than 10-inches; we're presuming that's an error rather than an actual spec-change.
