You know that netbook from graphics card maker HIS that was first spotted a few weeks ago? Yeah, it turns out it’s a fake. Or rather, it may be a real netbook, but it wasn’t produced by HIS.
The Register reports that HIS has no plans to enter the netbook market and will be seeking legal action against the folks who decided to slap their name onto a mini-laptop that bears a striking resemblance to an MSI Wind netbook. The computer was supposed to be sold in India for the equivalent of about $400 US. No word on whether the machine ever actually made it to market.
