The ECS G10IL has been getting a lot of buzz this summer. But you’ll never be able to pick one up — at least not with that name. That’s because Elite Computer Group isn’t selling the computers directly to consumers. Rather, ECS will serve as the original equipment manufacturer for a number of computer companies that will distribute the low cost laptop. And it appears that one of those companies will be FTEC.

LiewCF spotted a netbook called the FTEC eBook at the PIKOM PC Fair in Kuala Lampur, and posted a few pictures on Flickr. There’s not much information about the FTEC eBook at the moment. But the fact that the LED lights are on the touchpad button are pretty much a dead giveaway that this is a rebranded version of the ECS G10IL.

On paper, the G10IL looks a lot like virtually every other netbook coming out this summer. It has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, a large hard drive, and a 10 inch display. But FTEC seems to have found a unique wayto make the computer stand out — by adding flames to the case. Because that’s what you really want in a PC, right?

  1. Hum… I think the flame is the Malaysian habit: they put that on slow cars to make them look alike sport cars! 😉 (no offense)

  2. I just got the idea to check on the website of FTEC, and, by luck, I found a page which says: Pre-order promotion, etc. (the link: https://www.ftecdirect.com/promo_brand_page/Ebook_Pre-order.html). We can see three different versions, the most expensive for nearly 2,000 ringgits (ie nearly 400 Euros), has 2 GB of Ram and a hard drive of 120 GB, and a 3G modem. Not that much more information though.
    Otherwise the one, which costs 100 Euros less, has only 1GB or memory and 80 GB HDD, and of course no 3G.
