Indigo RS130 is Cheapest 13.3″ Netbook

This is the one that’s really identical to the MSI X-Slim X320 — the Indigo RS130 which is a 13.3″, Atom-powered netbook.

And for a cash price of Php17,900 at Compex, you can get this one with the following specs:



Indigo RS130
13.3″ Screen
Intel Atom N280 1.66GHz
Intel GMA950 Graphics
Intel GSE945 Chipset
1.3 MP webcam
WiFi 802.11b/g
10/100Mbps LAN

Again, there’s no OS included here but for under Php18,000, I think it’s a good buy. Just make sure you have your warranty covered by the store.

    That pretty much sums up the reason why it’s the cheapest 13.3 netbook :D

    There always seems to be a trust issue with this lesser known brands though they offer similarly-spec’d models as the more popular brands do.

    Despite the uber-cheap price tags, people are still reluctant to buy their models.

  9. yuga says:

    @jhay – now we have an idea how much premium is added to the brand by big PC manufacturers.

    I don’t trust this brand. I may be wasting money if I buy this… I just have to stick the brands I trust like Asus, Acer, Lenovo, Dell, HP, Toshiba and Fujitsu.

    @ jhay — there are pinoy “people” who only cares for the price… do u have any idea how many people who are buying china-made dvd players, mp3 players, celphone? A LOT! compared to their branded counterparts, i say 80% of pinoys

    and now comes laptops! so what’s the difference? the cheaper gadgets target 80% of pinoy… the poor. 5 to 20% of pinoys are reluctant hehehe!

  12. too large for a netbook. no information about battery capacity/life, which is a major component for a netbook factor.

    it just looks like one of those china netbooks being sold in Baclaran Terminal Plaza and along the DIGITAL Divisoria

  14. Actually it’s wireless B/G/N. Awesome value I would say and build quality is GOOD. Resolution is a huge 1280×800. Best value over-10″ ATOM notebook on the market today.

  15. Actually it’s wireless B/G/N. Awesome value I would say and build quality is GOOD. Resolution is a huge 1280×800. Best value over-10″ ATOM notebook on the market today. By the way, it has a “chiclet” keyboard which is super-easy to use!

  16. Marky says:

    Yes I agree, saw one of those China netbooks at divisoria (alongside with China Nintendo DSs). Isn’t this just a branded China netbook?

    @manong well yes, we buy China-made phones not just because of being affordable, one main reason is for replacing branded phones. So I don’t think a replacement netbook would be reliable especially for storing valuable data.

    Do Not Buy This Piece of Crap. hahaha Asus has launched a new netbook better than this. only 21900php

  20. mhai says:

    Pano po ba e open ang wireless nitong indigo rs 130 po. please help

  21. maryon mayor says:

    my own review of this netbook, is that its good if your just doing excels, word documents and other office stuffs..

    but if you are considering a multi-purpose laptap, this is not your option.

    for example. if you are considering Adobe Creative Suite 5, you will be having a problem with hardware resources…

    and also i had a problem with wifi. with this on UBUNTU, tried ubuntu 7.xx (jaunty)

    done anything, what i can find on google, seems its not working and only a little support on this… :( anyway, if you know how i can make use of the wifi using ubuntu, it will be a great help.. thanks..

    sir have you tried to play a 720 video on this netbook?

    I bought the indigo netbook back in December 2009. So far the 10-inch netbook works well with me and it still ‘alive’ I brought this laptop abroad (Singapore, Taiwan and Australia) and I was able to use it. It may not be the best but it will be useful if you’re just into surfing, movie download and playing videos in youtube. I haven’t use it in other things. I can say my money is worth it. More than 1.5 years for that cheap price is good enough for me.

  24. It can be found occasionally with using the “Sculptor’s Workbench.

    Going back to China, sunglasses were in use here around 12thcentury.
