You’d be forgiven for mistaking the Jetway EM130 for a MacBook. Cosmetically, it looks an awful lot like a 13 inch MacBook. But on the inside, this 13.3 inch notebook is all netbook — albeit one with relatively powerful netbook components.

The Jetway EM130 has a 1366 x 768 pixel HD display, NVIDIA ION graphics, and a dual core Intel Atom 330 processor. That chip is typically reserved for desktop computers, but Jetway’s MacBook clone isn’t the first laptop to use it. The Asus Eee PC 1201N also uses a dual core Intel Atom 330 processor.

The Em130 also has a 250G hard drive, up to 2GB of RAM, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and Ethernet. There’s also a fingerprint reader and an optional 3G modem.

There’s no word on price or availability — although it’s reasonably safe to assume this notebook won’t be available in the US anytime soon. While we tend to see a lot of Apple products cloned in China, it’s pretty rare to see those devices make it to the States.

  1. They should stop copying Apple’s design and learn to copy Apple’s Performance to Battery Life ratio (something that is completely unrivaled).

    1. Apple is more of an OEM than an ODM, and as such isn’t really in a position to take too much credit for things like performance / battery life ratios. They can obviously specify some design constraints or principles to this effect to their ODM partners, but at the end of the day the same ODM partners engineer and build all of the computers for all of the OEMs. Apple is a software company that uses it’s software to sell hardware. It’s not that other OEMs can’t access the same technology from the same ODM partners.

      Similarly, much in the same way that the “Apple” chiclet/island-style keyboard first appeared on Sony products (Sony is an ODM/OEM), the “Apple” MacBook , which succeeded the PowerBook, looks exactly like a laptop designed in 2003 by F.A. PORSCHE to be sold as an in house laptop for Best Buy known as the  VPR Matrix 200A5. In fact, this Jetway EM130 looks much more like the 200A5 than any current Apple product, but it may be my excessive knowledge clouding my judgment.

      1. If Apple isn’t responsible for the good battery life in their machines then who is? How do you explain the average Core 2 Duo/Core i with discrete Nvidia graphics Windows machine lasts about 3 hours on the same 60whr batteries while Apple’s machines, using essentially the same hardware, lasts twice as long?
