Averatec has launched what has to be the goofiest advertising campaign I’ve seen in a long time for the company’s new Buddy HS-103 netbook. But ridiculously happy people holding small computers aside, the Buddy looks like a decent little laptop. It’s got a 10.2 inch display, 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, and an 80GB HDD and a $588 price tag.
If the laptop looks familiar, it should, as it appears to be a rebranded ECS G10IL. This is a tiny bit surprising, because I’d heard that the Averatec netbook would actually be a rebranded MSI Wind. But the dude in the middle of the photo seems to be taking the news well.
