SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

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 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.

Gigabyte Thin Note M1024

Gigabyte Thin Note M1024

If you're going to call your netbook "Thin Note" then it has to be pretty blinkin' thin, and happily Gigabyte seem to have managed to shave a reasonable amount of bulk off of their Thin Note M1024.  The 10.1-inch netbook has an LED-backlit display and Intel's N270 1.6GHz Atom CPU, paired with 1GB of DDR2 memory.
