It seems like the Netbook category has come full circle with the current generation of touch screen Netbooks. After all, the current netbook as we know it is based on an Intel Atom processor that came out of the original UMPC project.
One of the better convertible netbooks is the Gigabyte M1028 TouchNote. We’ve been using the Gigabyte M1028 around the office for a few months now and here are some of the key reasons that we like it:
- Good size keyboard (92% full size) with Function keys and good key placement
- High res 10” indoor touch screen (1366 x 768 pixels)
- Easy access to upgrade and expand – Standard 2.5” SATA hard drives can be upgraded easily
- 2 USB ports, Express Card Slot, SDHC Card Reader and more!
- Multi-touch track pad mouse
- Nice sturdy swivel hinge convertible design
- 3G / Next G Mobile Broadband
- 2Gb RAM
- Standard 160Gb or 250Gb Hard Drives
- 6 Cell battery option for 5-6 hour operating time.
The Gigabyte M1028 also makes a great eBook reader. So, if you are looking for a netbook, why not get one with a touch screen too?
