UMid MBook

From: Stephen Kraus 
------------------------------------------------------
I am a big fan of netbooks, my biggest complaint though is that netbooks are
becoming less of what the were originally meant to be: Ultra-portable
laptops.

More and more netbooks have simply become low end laptops. Compare the
current Asus netbooks to their old Asus EEE PC 701 and 901 series netbooks
for instance.

However, I recently ran into a cool netbook, it isn't even really available
in the US yet, but I'm buying one anyways: the UMid MBook

It weighs less than half a pound, comes with either 1.1 Ghz or 1.2 Ghz Intel
Atom, 512MB DDR, 16 or 32GB SSD, Windows XP, 4.8 Inch 1024x600 touchscreen,
802.11b/g and Bluetooth, 1.2MP Webcam, MicroSD Card slot, and a miniature
keyboard. Also comes with an optional HSPA modem and SIM card slot. Its
EXTREMELY tiny, smaller than the very old NEC Mobilepro Handheld PC I have
which doesn't even have a 10th of the power this thing does.

THIS is what netbooks should be, not entry level laptops!
