ECS has announced their 11" sub-notebook G10IL.
besides the mandatory sub $500 price tag (which you can read as: $499.99) it comes packed with quite an interesting range of extras:
- 11" LCD
- 3 USB 2.0 ports
- Ethernet port
- VGA connection
- 56k modem
- HSDPA 7.2 (YES!!!)
And, although not confirmed, it's expected to ship with WiFi 802.11a/g and Bluetooth. And just like the Asus Eee PC, it has no optical drive - who needs it anyway?
There's still no info regarding the CPU/chipset, but for that price range, it's expected to use VIA chips.
Well, we can always dream it will launch with the new Intel Atom platform, which would provide an unbetable cost/performance ratio.. :)
