Two Gigabyte netbooks have now seen their release in the United States. The Gigabyte TouchNote T1028 and Booktop M1022 have both gone on sale for $599.00 and $449.00 respectively. This leaves only the Gigabyte ThinNote S1024 to make its way at some point.
The TouchNote T1028 is a convertible netbook similar to the Asus Eee PC T91, so that it can be used in a tablet mode. However, the T1028 has a 10-inch screen compared to the 8.9-inch screen found in the Eee PC T91.
The Gigabyte M1022 has a docking station that can be connected to monitor/keyboard/mouse and be used as a desktop system when at home. It also has a 6-cell battery that should be good for 8 hours of battery life. Both models are powered by a 1.66GHz N280 Atom CPU and come with 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. So far there is no sight of these Gigabyte netbooks in the UK.
