The upcoming Sylvania G MESO won’t be Sylvania’s first foray into the netbook market. But the original Sylvania G is basically just an Everex Cloudbook knockoff (which is to say it’s based on the VIA NanoBook reference design and has a 30GB hard drive, 1.2GHz VIA C7-M CPU, 7 inch display, and a tiny, tiny trackpad). The G MESO, on the other hand actually looks like it’s designed to compete with the major players in the market like Asus and Acer.

Here’s the rundown:

  • Display: 8.9 inch 1024 x 600 pixel screen
  • Processor: 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU
  • RAM: 1GHz
  • Storage: 80GB hard drive
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home or Ubuntu Netbook Remix
  • Connectivity: Ethernet, 802.11b/g
  • Expansion: multi-card reader, 3USB ports, VGA output
  • Dimension: 9″ x 7″ x 1.25″
  • Weight: 2.2 lbs

There’s no word on pricing or availability yet. But jkOnTheRun reports that Sylvania is hoping to ship these puppies for around $299. The computer should be available in black, white, yellow, and pink.
