chinaYou know a PC category is hot when companies that aren’t known for making computer begin pumping them out. We’ve already seen a few electronics makers like Archos and Coby dip a toe into the netbook game. Now several Chinese electronics companies have announced plans to sell mini-laptops.

DigiTimes reports that LCD monitor maker AOC, Motherboard vendor Colorful, and electronics company Malata all have netbooks that are either already available in China or which are in the works.

One reply on “Chinese electronics makers getting in on the netbook action”

  1. I bought a10.2″ netbook made by Bolton Technology China on eBay, running a Via C7-M at 1.6 Gb, 1Gb RAM and with 160Gb hard drive. Cost, £199. It is well made, runs Win XP at present although I intend to add Linux in dual-boot, and is very satisfactory. Built-in wi-fi and a Li-ion battery which runs for 3.5 to 4 hours depending on my usage makes it complete. I expect these products to shake up the market and reduce prices all round in the near future.
