Taiwanese PC maker Gigabyte briefly added a product page to its web site for a new convertible tablet-stylenetbook called the T1000 today. And then it removed the page. Fortunately, you can still see Google’s cached version of the page.
The Gigabyte T1000 looks like an upgraded version of the Gigabyte T1028X TouchNote. Like the TouchNote it has a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel touchscreen display that you can fold down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode. But the upcoming T1000 has a new Intel Atom Pine Trail processor.
To be more precise, it will be available with either a 1.66GHz Atom N450 or 1.83GHz Atom N470 CPU. I’m guessing it’s the latter option that caused Gigabyte to remove the product page. While I’ve seen several companies introduce products with theN470 CPU, Intel has yet to acknowledge its existence, and companies have a habit of pulling down pages that mention it.
Rounding out the Gigabyte T1000’s specs are 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, Intel GMA 3150 graphics, 2 USB ports, an eSATA/USB combo port, mic and headphone jacks, D-Sub and Ethernet jacks, a flash card reader, and an Express Card slot.
The laptop will also have 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and the option of a 4 or 6 cell batter. It looks like the 4 cell model will be called the T1000X, while the 6 cell model will be the Gigabyte T1000P.
The notebook measures 10.4″ x 8.4″ x 1.6″ and weighs 3.3 pounds with a 6 cell battery. The 4 cell version is a little thinner and lighter.
No word on pricing, but Gigabyte’s convertible tablet-style netbooks (or netvertibles), don’t tend to come cheap.
Update: It looks like the T100 product page is live on Gigabyte’s German web site.
