ECS G10IL   (Source: ECS)
Intel's "Diamondville" processor will find a home in the ECS G10IL

DailyTech provided you with some slim details on the ECS G10IL a few weeks ago. The small, sub-notebook was spotted at CeBIT and was immediately labeled as an Eee PC 401/Eee PC 900 competitor by nearly everyone in the press.

Although specifications on the device were rather slim at the time, ECS finally spilled the beans when it comes to its latest notebook offering. As reported earlier this month, the ECS G10IL will be available with three USB 2.0 ports, 1.3MP webcam, a 4-in-1 card reader, an Ethernet jack, 56k modem, WiFi, Bluetooth and HSDPA 7.2.

New details revealed by ECS today include the fact that the G10IL will be available with both 8.9" and 10.2" glossy display screens. Powering the G10IL will be a Diamondville (Intel Atom) processor coupled with the Intel 945 GSE/ICH7M northbridge/southbridge.

The sub-notebook will feature one DIMM slot which will support up to 2GB of DDR2 memory. ECS will also provide customers with the choice of traditional mobile HDDs or solid-state disks (SSDs). 4-cell and 6-cell battery options will be included -- the latter will likely come as standard equipment with the larger, 10.2" version of the G10IL.

The ECS G10IL will be available with both Windows XP and some variant of Linux when it launches later this summer.

Glad I sold my EEE

So I got an eee and naturally had buyers remorse after hearing the numerous press releases about micro notebooks on the way. Sold it on ebay and only lost 15 bucks off retail, now I just need to see if any of these products are A)actually affordable: 500 bucks or less. B) Have a slightly larger keyboard for my hands and a slightly larger screen for my eyes: 8.9 - 10 inches. C) Come out in a timely fashion: May at the latest please!

I'm hoping the one from HP hits the sweet spot. I'm crossing my fingers.
