ECS To Challenge The Eee PC

ECS To Challenge The Eee PC

As with all rumors, please take the following news item with a grain of salt until we can receive official confirmation or denial from ECS.

It seems that ECS is preparing a sub-$500 ultra-portable laptop to do battle with the popular ASUS Eee PC.  At present the product's moniker is the G10IL, but it might get a flashier name to compete with the ASUS Eee and Cloudbook.

“Although currently still in production, and details incredibly sketchy at the moment as to what else you will get in the box or when it will launch in the UK, what we do know is that it comes with a built-in webcam, three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet and a 56Kbps modem.

There is no optical drive but if its got HSDPA it's sure to come with Wi-Fi and most likely Bluetooth to boot.”

 Seems internesting.

 I hope that all the competition in the mini-laptop market can drive the EEE prices into the "reasonable" range.

However I have seen the ECS motherboards many times in very cheap desktops, and have some doubts as to the quality of this. Never know though, they might make a really decent product at a reasonable price.
