So it turns out that when I told you the Neo ViVid V1100 was an MSI Wind clone destined for the Philippines, I was wrong. While PC Corner certainly had a picture of an MSI Wind lookalike on the product page for a while, it has since been replaced with the photo shown above.
I can’t say I’ve seen any mini-notebook that looks quite like this one, and I can’t say I’m impressed. The speakers are a bit too prominent for my taste, and the case looks a little cheap. But that makes sense, because this ain’t exactly the most expensive netbook money can buy. PC Corner is charging 19,990 Philippine, or about $440 US.
Here’s what you get for your money:
- 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU
- 1GB RAM
- 120GB HDD
- 8.9 inch display
- 3-in-1 card reader
No word on whether this computer will be available outside the Philippines anytime soon. Or ever.
Update: As jkkmobile and Joanna Stern kindly pointed out in the comments, it looks like this is an Amtek Elego/Sylvania G Meso style device.
