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.
