Gigabyte M912 6 cell battery now shipping


Back before the CTL 2Go PC convertible tablet or the Asus Eee PC T91 were even a twinkle in our eyes, Gigabyte release the M912 convertible tablet. While the machine’s a bit expensive to be considered a netbook, with a price tag around $799, the Gigabyte M912 has an 8.9 inch 1280 x 768 or 1024 x 600 pixel touchscreen display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, and a swivel that lets you use the computer in tablet or laptop mode.

What it doesn’t have is stellar battery life, since the computer comes with a 3 cell battery. But now you can pick up a 6 cell battery which should double your run time for about 60 Euros. The Gigabyte M912 isn’t available in the US unless you go through an importer, but just in case you’re curious, 60 Euros is about $77 US.

    A “hsipping” battery? Is that “hissing” like the exploding Sony's, or maybe “sipping” like the XO?
