While netbook prices continue to fall in the US, western PC vendors have got nothing on Chinese PC makers. Shanzai.com recently spotted two new models from AOJIE that are priced at just $146 and $160 US.
While we’ve certainly seen some other mini-laptops at or below those prices, they tend to be 7 inchers with sluggish ARM-based processors. The AOJIE X100V and X100A both sport 10 inch screens. The cheaper X100V has a 1.6GHz VIA C7-M processor, while the $160 X100A has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU.
Both models ship with Windows XP, have 1024 x 576 pixel displays, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 2 USB ports, a 1.3MP webcam, and 3 cell, 2200mAh battery. The computers weigh in at 2.3 pounds. On the down side, they’re saddled with just 512MB of RAM and 4GB of solid state storage.
