The Averatec Buddy may be just another rebranded MSI Wind, but that doesn’t mean I’m not happy to hear it will be coming to the US soon. Averatec launched the laptop earlier this month in Korea, where it’s selling for abotu $588 US.
But according to Electronista, the US version will go for just $450. And it will have a 160GB hard drive, which provides twice the storage capacity you’ll find on the Korean model, or the US version of the MSI Wind U100, for that matter.
Update: If the images obtained by Engadget are accurate, it looks like the Buddy is actually a rebranded ECS G10IL, not an MSI Wind. That would make this the first G10IL model I’m aware of to hit the states.
