The latest laptop from the Umbrella corporation, or rather, Chinese electronics maker DianJiTek is a thin and light 11.6 inch laptop that bears a more than passing resemblance to a certain thin and light 13 inch model from Apple. But it’s red (although it’s also available in silver, black, or brown). And it has an umbrella on the lid.
The insides are also more netbook than Macbook Air. The DianJiTek DI 1201 has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. It has a 3 cell, 3200mAh battery.
The laptop also isn’t going to ship with OS X, although I’d be surprised if you couldn’t get the Mac OS to run on this machine using some of the standard hackintosh tools.
I doubt we’ll see the DI 1201 outside of China anytime soon, but you can pick one up in China for the equivalent of about $360.
