Here is a neat announcement for CES last week. Everex, the makers of the $199 desktop computer running the gOS has announced a new mini-laptop called the Cloudbook for a very low price of $400. Now this is obviously not going to be your power house laptop running Ableton Live and visuals, but with the CPU clocking in at 1.2 GHZ that is nothing to sneeze at. You could probably get Albeton Live up and running on that no problem. At the very least it could be a great alternative for running some midi software or as an auxiliary device.
What sets this apart from the similarly priced Asus eee PC is the hardware specs is not only the 1.2 GHZ VIA C7®-M Processor, but the fact that it also comes with a 30GB harddrive. Something you can actually put real files on.
Additional specs include the following:
512MB DDR2 533MHz SDRAM
30GB Hard Disk Drive,
7" WVGA TFT Display (800 x 480)
VIA UniChrome Pro IGP Graphics
VIA High-Definition Audio
10/100 Ethernet Port
DVI-I Port, (2) USB 2.0 Ports
4-in1 Media Card Reader
Set of Stereo Speaker
4-Cell Lithium-Ion Battery
It is expected to be available at Wal-Mart's and online starting January 25th.
