kivu g-five

It’s not easy to make a 10 inch netbook stand out from the crowd. Especially when it has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1Gb of RAM, and 160GB hard drive. So I suppose I can’t begrudge Kvui Technology’s attempt to find something new to say about the company’s G-Five KTNO2 10 inch netbook. But seriously, highlighting the netbook’s aerodynamic features?

The laptop’s keyboard, touchpad, and chassis make it look an awful lot like an Asus Eee PC S101 clone. But it’s got some rounded edges near the back, which help reduce wind resistance, I guess in case you plan to use your netbook for a game of catch. Of course, while netbooks tend to be cheap by computer standards, I don’t think you could find a more expensive frisbee.

The idea is supposed to be that the lower wind resistance makes the netbook feel lighter while you’re carrying it. But somehow I just don’t see that happening unless you happen to be walking through a hurricane while holding the G-Five out in front of you to help slip through the wind.

  1. …well, since it has no rudder or stabilizer, maybe they could at least put a spoiler on the thin edge and add some landing gear 🙂

  2. This is of vital import to me, as I commute to work in a hot air balloon. Now my netbook can double as a steering mechanism!
