Yesterday we discovered that there would be a new netbook bearing the Sylvania name this fall, the Sylvania G MESO. The MESO is an 8.9 inch sequel to Sylvania’s 7 inch Sylvania G notebook. But it looks like Sylvania ain’t stopping there, because Laptop Magazine reports there’s also a 10 inch model in the works, to be known as the Sylvania G MAGNI.
The computers aren’t actually being produced by Sylvania, a company best known for its lighting and electronics products. Rather, an OEM named Digital Gadgets is behind the low cost ultraportable computers. Laptop spoke with Paul Goldenberg, the managing partner at Digital Gadgets and came away with the following details:
- Both the MESO and the MAGNI will be out in August or September and will be available with either Ubuntu Netbook Remix or Windows XP.
- Both will use the Intel Atom CPU.
- The 8.9 inch version will start at $399 and will have an 80GB hard drive and come with either 512MB or 1GB of RAM. The Windows XP model will have 1GB of RAM and will likely cost around $499.
- The 10 inch version will have a 120GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM.
