For Your Eyes Only

For Your Eyes Only

While scouting the exhibition halls of Computex 2008 for the latest scoops and news, our eyes spotted a strangely familiar sight. Lo and behold! Netbooks galore! Here's a quick peek before tomorrow's full coverage of Computex 2008.

 The ASUS Eee Box isn't a netbook; it's a Nettop that's bound to wow users with it's sleek form and affordable price.

 Running on a 1.6Ghz VIA C7-M is Everex's 8.9-inch OpenBook which features Windows XP, 2GB DDR2 and a 80GB HDD.

 Gigabyte joins in the netbook fray with the Gigabyte Netbook 912. Featuring a 8.9-inch screen, Gigabyte's offering is most likely running on Intel's Atom (1.6Ghz), though we can't be sure at this point of time.

 Kohjinsha's offering differs from its other competitors by using AMD instead of VIA or Intel processor. Running on an AMD Geode LX800, and has a slightly larger 10.2-inch screen.

 it uses Atom.

 Packbard Bell's Easynote XS is bound to make most Europeans happy as chances are, you'll probably find this VIA powered netbook available there first (we guess).

 Last but not least is the OLPC, which as you all know, is now running on Windows XP (as you can see).
