gb x1200

When MSI introduced its MSI X-slim line of Intel Atom and CULV powered computers, a lot of people commented on how these relatively inexpensive 13.3 inch laptops looked an awful lot like the much pricier Macbook Air. Now a Chinese company is showing a mini-laptop that bears an even more striking resemblance to the Macbook Air.

The GB X1200 has a 12.1 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, and yes, I know that makes it a bit smaller than the Macbook Air. But it’s also super thin, and has a hidden door for the USB ports and other connectors that won’t easily fit on the side of the computer. It also has a nice wide touchpad with a single large button below it.

On the inside, there’s no confusing the GB X1200 with the Macbook Air. This compuuter has a 1.6GHz intel Atom Nz70 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. It sports 2 USB ports, a 1.3MP webcam, and Windows XP. It looks like this is an OEM product, which means that we could see it rebranded and sold under a different name at some point.

  1. did anyone look at the closeups on the chinese website?? if you did, you saw what happens when no-design-guys steal a good design. it’s ugly. they ruined all the good lines and made it look like any other ugly windows-laptop. it’s like a stolen webdesign, hacked to death.

  2. Black screen, black keyboards and black track pad… yup, it looks likes EVERY other laptop on the market.
