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]

    Huh?

    Since when does a netbook need a replacable battery? I'd be hard pressed to convince myself to pay $150 to replace a battery in a $300 computer, especially since there might be a newer version out by that point.

    Of course, I hope you were just being sarcastic, but it's the internet, so you can't tell for sure.

    I think this thing is fugly, btw.

    Picture

    Is it just me or does the cover on the side ports appear to be flapping / hanging loose?

    It has the shape of Air

    Why would anyone want to take the shape of the Macbook air, with all its physical limitations and then give it less power with an Atom processor?

    The shape would be okay if the case were metal, they added more ports and a removable battery.
