You’ll notice this headline says the Wizbook800 is an Eee PC competitor, not a killer. That’s because this little computer from Red Fox Technologies may come in a small, lightweight case and feature a nice roomy(ish) 20Gb hard drive. But it packs a sluggish AMD LX700 400MHz which is going to have a tough time keeping up with the 900MHz Intel Celeron chip in the original Eee PC or the Intel Atom CPU that Asus will include in the upcoming Eee PC 901.

While Red Fox hasn’t announced a price for the Wizbook800, I’m guessing it’ll be quite a bit cheaper than a top of the line Eee PC though. At least, I’d hope so, based on these specs:

  • CPU: AMD LX700 400MHz
  • OS: Linux
  • Display: 8 inch 800 x 480 pixels
  • Storage:20GB HDD
  • RAM: 512MB
  • Connectivity: Ethernet, 802.11b/g, PCMCIA slot, SD/MMC/MS card reader, 2 USB slots
  • Stereo speakers
  • Microphone input
  • Battery: 2200mAh 2.5 hour battery
  • Dimensions: 250x188x36mm
  • Weight: less than 1.2kg
