The Gigabyte T1028M Touch Note convertible tablet style netbook may not be shipping from US distributors yet. But European retailer Mobilx has it in stock, and Chippy at UMPC Portal got a loaner to check out. To start things off, he’s posted a detailed unboxing video, which you can find after the break.
The netbook features a 10.1 inch touchscreen display that can be folded down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode. It looks a lot like the Gigabyte M912, but bigger. It has a larger keyboard, and Chippy reports it runs cooler than the M912 and the fan isn’t as noisy.
As you can see in the video, Gigabyte also ships the Touch Note with a nice looking slip case that has a side pocket, something you won’t find on the cheap slip covers some other computer makers include with their netbooks.
