And Another Asus Eee PC Competitor Enters the Fray

Before the Asus Eee PC hit the market, it seemed like the in-between world of subnotebooks wasn’t all that popular. The masses weren’t interested in UMPCs and other gadgets that fit in between smartphones and full laptops, but somehow, the Eee was different. It was enough to produce a massive buying frenzy.

As such, it’s perfectly understandable that other companies want a piece of the subnotebook pie too. We’ve already seen competitors like the Everex Cloudbook and now we can welcome the G10IL PC from Elitegroup Computer Systems of Taiwan too. Well, I can already tell you their first problem: how the heck do you pronounce G10IL? Joe Public would be utterly confused by this l33t speak.

In terms of actual features, the G10IL PC will likely be powered by an Intel Atom processor, get up to 2GB of RAM, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, and your choice of XP or Linux. The subnotebook will also be offered in two sizes — 8.9-inch and 10.2-inch — though pricing has not yet been announced.
