MSI and Gigabyte launching new budget notebooks end of Q2

According to a Chinese-language paper, Commercial Times, there are sources that say that MSI will be launching its Wind notebook in 8.9 and/or 10 inch sizes priced between $470 and $1099. I don’t know what kind of budget PC they are marketing that is going to cap out at a little over a thousand dollars though.


Gigabyte M704 UMPC – more robust than the M528 MID

This device is an actual UMPC, not a mobile internet device, and it has a 7” screen and 780 gram weight to prove it. The screen on this one is an actual touch-screen though, meaning you can control everything from the screen.


Gigabyte Roll Pad passive notebook cooler – makes me hungry for California Roll

Basically, what this is is a giant heat sink for the bottom of your notebook. It attracts the heat from the bottom of your notebook, and due to the metal it’s made out of, is able to dissipate the heat faster than your notebook or your lap.


Gigabyte M528 MID – small and light, yet powerful, like dynamite

It has a 4.8-inch screen, which should give you a reference for dimensions, and it weighs a mere 340 grams. Technically it’s being called an MID or Mobile Internet Device, but it looks pretty capable.


Gigabyte M704 UMPC yet another addition to what seemed to be a stale market

First we get hit with the new Asus offering, and now Gigabyte has a new UMPC too, looks like things are popping in the UMPC market again. Sadly it looks like this will, for now, only be available in Taiwan.

But if you are still interested, it has a 1.2GHz VIA Esther ULV C7-M processor, a 7” LED backlit LCD with a 1024×600 resolution, and a 40 or 60GB HDD with Windows Vista. It weighs a mere 780 grams.


Gigabyte W251-G5 – Small, sleek, but still packs some power

I’m not a huge fan of smaller laptops, mostly because I hate sacrificing my larger screens. However, when I’m traveling to shows I do get burdened by carrying around a larger (and bulkier) laptop. So I’m almost thinking that I need to get a smaller notebook just so I’m not weighed down. This new one from Gigabyte looks pretty appealing.


Gigabyte set to release their first UMPC next week

Gigabyte Technology has decided to throw their hat into the ring with other UMPC makers with their own U60 model.


Gigabyte mini-DTX motherboard offers compact dual-core grunt

Looking at Intel’s new mini-ITX board that Scott wrote about earlier, but disappointed by the Celeron 215 processor?  Gigabyte might have the answer with their slightly-larger but still compact Churchill mini-DTX motherboard, capable of sporting CPUs from the Athlon 64 or Sempron single or dual-core ranges.
