Unboxing: Gigabyte M912 Netbook

This came in today in the package, the only tablet PC in the netbook market — the Gigabyte M912. Earlier reported back in July and spotted last month during the Intel Atom launch, check out the unboxing pics after the jump.

The Gigabyte M912 came with a stylus though it’s not attached to the laptop with a string or anything (unlike the HP tablets I’ve used before).

    For that price tag, it’s a bargain. But we’d wait for the review. ;)

  3. Good pricing they have. Somehow good for a touchscreen netbook. But don’t buy just yet since there’ll be Touchscreen Eee PC early next year. So watch out for it as well.

    is the ram upgradeable to 2gb & above? ‘coz running it with just 1gb and with vista basic installed will make this netbook crawl.

  5. yuga says:

    @paul, unlike the other netbooks which are very hard to upgrade, the Gigabyte chassis works like your regular notebook so the RAM and HDD can be easily replaced or upgraded.

    @paul, i’ve been using the Gigabyte M912 since August with Vista Home Basic and 1GB of RAM. i’m very happy to say that it works very well! it doesn’t crawl at all, and it can even play some of my HD videos. thanks to Intel Atom of course. i’m thinking of upgrading it to Vista Home Premium and see if it can still work with 1GB of RAM

    @ reggie

    i am considering buying this model. anyway, i have a few questions first. what’s the average battery life? is the keyboard and trackpad responsive?

  8. myk says:

    i also want to ask if there is an option for an upgrade to an extended battery for this model? having more than 3 hours worth of juice would be nice
