The ECS TL101-PC showed up at the WiMAX Forum in Taipei. It’s an attractive netbook with a battery that sits flush with the base and a rather slim design. Oh yeah, and it has built in WiMAX mobile broadband capabilities.

The netbook has a chiclet-style keyboard and a few unusual features including a silent mode that automatically shuts off the fan when you unplug the laptop. There are also a series of status LEDs to show you hard drive activity, power status, and other information. Nothing new there, but the status lights are actually built into the touchpad buttons — which looks kind of neat at first until you realize how annoying it would be to have them constantly flashing at you while you type.

You can check out a hands-on video of the EC TL101-PC courtesy of Netbook News after the break.
