Gigabyte M912 jumps into the mini notebook pool


Here’s yet another netbook/UMPC/mini laptop/tiny notebook/lapito contender, this one from Gigabyte. The M912 sports the usual list of features found in most other devices in its class plus a few extra niceties — 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 8.9-inch 1280×768 touchscreen that rotates up to 180 degrees, integrated 1.3-megapixel webcam, three USB ports. support for Windows XP or Linux, external optical drive option.

The swiveling touchscreen is a nice addition that helps to set this one apart from the rest of the pack (for now). There will also be your option of 120-, 160-, or 250-gigabyte 2.5-inch hard drive, so you’ll get more storage on this little guy than on most similar devices. No word on pricing yet, but it should be available some time this month after it’s been officially announced.
