We have already heard that Gigabyte is launching a Pine Trail update to its Booktop M1022 netbook called the M1000. We are receiving word on the different models under the M1000 series, the flagship of which will be the M1000N that comes with a flush glass display with 1366 x 768 resolution.
This particular model will also come with next-generation ION graphics, most likely the 8-core version since it is a 10-inch netbook. As it is a Booktop model, it will include a docking station that has a HDMI port and DVD drive. It will also come with a 6-cell battery with a price point estimated at €450 – €500.
The Gigabyte M1000C is the middle model and comes with a a10-inch matte display, 1GB RAM and a 250GB HDD and comes with Windows 7 Starter. This particular model only ships with a 4-cell battery and will be priced between €350-€380. The last model is the Gigabyte E1000, although not too much information is known on this one right now, more details should be forthcoming at Computex in June.
