When you buy a computer from a well known company, there’s a good chance it was actually manufacturer by a less well known company that specializes in producing OEM computers and electronics for big companies like Acer, HP, and Dell. Every now and then you’ll even find two companies selling nearly identical machines based on the same OEM design. For example, the Medion Akoya Mini and the MSI Wind notebook are basically the same computer.

As one reader pointed out, it looks like the folks making the OEM version of the 3K RazorBook have quite a few customers. Because you can find this tiny, low-cost laptop with a whole slew of different names in different parts of the globe.We already knew about the SkyTone Alpha 100, but here are a few more examples:

All of these devices sport similar specs, including a 7-inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, a 400MHz CPU, and flash memory instead of a hard drive. They run a custom version of Linux, and it’s practically impossible to access the BIOS or change the operating system. Future versions may run Windows CE.

thanks Menno!
