We think this might be a huge stretch on the term ‘clone’ but the latest aspiring Air coming out of Taiwan packs an impressive array of features, especially for the $249 pricetag it carries.   This one has:

  • Built in Ethernet port
  • 3G Wireless
  • HDMI video out
  • Full laptop HDD
  • SD Card slot

On the downside, it has a Intel Atom 280 processor, 1GB of DDR2 RAM and a battery rated at 2.5 hours -and it is plastic and not so thin…

So really, it is simply a flattened out Netbook with a 12-inch screen. Still, some of these features might be nice on the Air – which would you like to see?  We’re in the 3G camp. Lots of pictures below.
