Everybody wants to beat the Eee

So it seems every PC maker now wants their own version of Asus’ Eee PC. Electronista reports Gigabyte’s interest in producing a micro–notebook like the best–selling Eee. Their version will be using the upcoming Shelton platform from Intel, sporting a 1.6 GHz single core CPU with a power draw of less than eight watts. Similarly, the screen is planned to be of the same size as Asus’ 399 USD micro–wonder. Gigabyte intends to produce the whole PC internally and not have it produced by other contractors.
