TESO outs Air-like netbook
China's TESO has recently introduced a 12.1-inch notebook that mimics the styling, if not the performance, of the Apple MacBook Air. The portable PC has more cooling vents than the real deal, though processing power comes from an Intel Atom processor and 1GB of RAM. Storage is likely in the form of a 250GB hard drive. The operating system for the computer is not known, though the expected basement-level price excludes the possibility of a Windows OS and most likely points to Linux.
The TESO notebook has two USB ports, a SATA output and lacks an Ethernet port, instead opting for a Wi-Fi Internet connection. The battery is integrated and not meant to be easily taken out or swapped. The notebook reportedly weighs in at 3.1lbs. The TESO netbook was recently launched in China, though pricing information is not available. [via PMPToday]
