The Gigabyte T1005M is a 10 inch mini-laptop with a touchscreen display that you can fold down over the keyboard or use in tablet mode. What sets it apart from earlier Gigabyte convertible netbooks, the T1005M has a dual core Intel Atom N550 processor and a capacitive touchscreen display. Earlier models has resistive displays and single core chips.
The new model also has a new chiclet-style keyboard, a USB 3.0 port, and a redesigned hinge with a sturdier build.It also has an eSATA port and a USB 2.0 port.
Nicole from Netbook News got a chance to check out the new Gigabyte T1005M in person and she seemed pretty impressed with most of the features, although the 6 cell. 7650mAh battery is rather large and unwieldy in the back, and the touchpad is awfully small and has buttons on the left and right side instead of in front of it.
We’ll have to wait a little longer for reviews to start popping up, but you can pre-order the Gigabyte T1005M today from Amazon for $599.99.
