Gigabyte announces Eee PC competitor

by

Gigabyte

Last week we told you that Acer would be joining the ranks of companies like Asus who wish to dominate the realm of super-small laptops. They hope to launch their 8 or 9-inch ultra portable by the end of the quarter, or the beginning of next at the latest. In response to Acer’s announcement, Gigabyte has released a statement saying that they too wish to compete in this market.

Like Acer, they haven’t released a lot of information regarding their future ultra portable, though we do know it will be Intel-based and feature a 7 to 9-inch screen. Rather than outsource the design or manufacturing of the low-cost portable, they have decided to do everything in-house.\

Gigabyte is set to launch their new notebook sometime in the month of June following launches of a mobile internet device (MID) and an ultra-mobile PC (UMPC) in April. No word on what price-point they are expecting to hit, but we can assume that it would be in line with the Eee PC against which they are expecting to compete.
