Gigabyte's Booktop M1022M goes on sale

Written by test

At least in Taiwan

The most interesting aspect of the Gigabyte Booktop M1022M is its docking station which allows you to place this netbook vertically on your desk, while getting access to a D-sub connector, an Ethernet port, three USB 2.0 ports and an audio jack on the dock.

This is great for people that want to use their netbook with a larger screen and a standard keyboard and mouse for some more "serious" work. Still, the Booktop M1022M does seem to at least offer some other features that should appeal such as a 6-cell battery with up to 7.5h battery life, yet still only weighing in at 1.3kg. At 265x191x26.5-30.5mm (WxDxH) it's not the slimmest model out there, but it's still easily portable.

Most of the hardware specifications is pretty much your average netbook features, consisting of an Atom N270 processor, the 945GSE chipset, 1GB of DDR2 memory, a 160GB 2.5-inch SATA drive, a 10.1-inch display with 1,024x600 resolution, a 1.3 Megapixel webcam, 802.11b/g/n WiFi. Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, 10/100Mbit Ethernet, three USB 2.0 ports, a multi-format card reader, a D-sub connector and a pair of audio jacks.

For those that likes to upgrade their netbook, it looks as if the Booktop M1022M will be a good choice, as it has easy access to the hard drive, memory and mini cards and it even looks like there's an empty full-length slot available for something like a 3G card. At €406 (£363/$529) it's not the most expensive netbook on the market either and Gigabyte might be able to gain a small share of the netbook market with this new model.
