At first glance, the Gigabyte T1005M looks like a typical 10 inch netbook. But there are a few things that set it apart from the crowd:

  • 1.5GHz Intel Atom N550 dual core processor
  • 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel HD display
  • 7650mAh 6 cell battery
  • Touchpad with buttons on the left and right instead of the bottom
  • Access panels for the RAM, hard drive, and other components
  • USB 3.0 and eSata ports

Oh yeah… you can also rotate the display and fold it down over the screen for use in tablet mode. The computer has a capacitive multitouch display.

Nicole from Netbook News has posted an unboxing video taking a quick look at the hardware and what comes in the case. Along with the souped up netbook, you get a pretty nice looking case. You can check out the video after the break.

The Gigabyte T1005M is available from Amazon for $599.

  1. yes the premium over netvertibles is just ridiculous. The netbook would be $350-400 with the dual core and higher res screen but still that is $200-$250 more just for the touchscreen. For more like $450 it would be on my buy list.

  2. Man, a $300 netbook with a capacitive touch screen that goes for $600.

    Why? I don’t see an apple on it!

    If there was an apple on it people would pay $1200… Fail.
