YAEC: Emtec gdium EM-PC ultra-portable

Emtec gdium EM-PC ultra-portable

YAEC = Yet another EeePC clone…… but for once the company has put a bit of thought into it’s design. We’re impressed with the non-EeePC look!

Their website tells us it will be on sale in July for A$449 (US $420), that it has an 8.9″ 1024×600 pixel screen, and that it doesn’t have an internal hard drive – instead it uses a USB flash drive to load a linux operating system.

What they forget to tell us is what processor it has and how much memory, but why worry about the little details, right?

Back to the (probably very slow) USB drive: They call it a GKey and the idea is that the OS is on there along with all your files and some security software so you can keep it with you and plug it in anywhere to access your files.

They suggest using it in internet cafes, in school labs, at friends’ houses….. I foresee a lot of customer support calls from people who don’t realize many of those places restrict access to USB ports.

YAEC: the KL-PC701


Yet another Eeepc clone: this one is the KL-PC701.

Nothing really exciting in the spaces department: 7″ LCD at 800 x 480 pixel resolution, XBurst 400 Mhz 32-bit processor, Linux 2.4 operating system, 10M/100M Ethernet connectivity, Wi-Fi connectivity, 128MB RAM, 512MB NAND flash memory, SD memory card slot, USB 2.0.

Wholesale price (for 100+ unit order) is $195. Why is it so cheap? because they forgot to include a hard drive or decent sized SSD.
