jisus netbook

A few months ago I checked in on the progress of the Jisus netbook from Van Der Led. Over the past year the company had announced three separate netbooks, but as far as I could tell none had come to market yet. Apparently my email inquiry got lost in the shuffle because I finally got a response today. 

In a nutshell, it looks like Van Der Led decided to scrap the Jisus line, at least for now. The company’s board of directors determined that the netbook line just doesn’t stand out from the crowd of other VIA C7-M and Intel Atom-based mini-laptops. So the company is taking Jisus back to the drawing board and hopes to put out a more innovative device in the future.
