Coby’s latest netbook visits CES
While Coby’s booth at CES was choc full of tablets this year, netbooks were harder to find. For the past two years, Coby has shown up to CES with roughly a gazillion mini-laptops, but this year I spotted just one: The Coby NBPC1029. And I have to say, it’s the most attractive netbook I’ve seen from this budget electronics company.
Spec-wise, the NBPC1029 is nothing special. It has a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, 802.11b/g WiFi, 0.3MP, and 3 cell, 2200mAh battery. It runs Windows 7 Starter Edition.
But it also has a pretty attractive design with a slightly angular case, nice wide keys on the keyboard, and an attractive chrome edge and buttons by the touchpad (although the “buttons” are actually just one button with a rocker in between and they’re not as easy to press as I would like).
There’s no word on pricing, but Coby does have a product page for the NBPC1029 on its web site.
