Chinese PC maker Malata has introduced a whole slew of new netbooks recently. And they all look rather… familiar. The Malata PC-98905, PC-91009, PC-91013, and PC-91007 appear to be clones of the Sony Vaio P, Asus Eee PC 1008HA, Asus Eee PC 1005HA, and Asus Eee PC 1002HA respectively.
What’s interesting is that Malata claims that all three laptops are available with 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 Pineview processors (although the Vaio P clone is also available with and Intel Atom N270 or N280 processor).
Like most Sony Vaio P clones, the PC-98905 doesn’t get everything right. In addition to using a different version of the Atom CPU (which is probably a good thing), the laptop has an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel screen instead of Sony’s 8 inch, 1600 x 768 pixel super-widescreen display. But the laptop does support 8GB to 32Gb of solid state storage, up to 2GB of RAm, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
The Eee PC 1008HA clone has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and supports up to 320GB of hard drive space, 2GB of RAM, and has 802.11b/g/n WiFi.The PC-91013 has similar specs, but it has a 6 cell battery and a slightly bulkier design.
Like the other Eee PC clones, the PC-91007 takes its design cues from an Asus product, but the netbook features virtually identical specs to the other models in the lineup when it comes to the Atom N450 processor, 10 inch screen, hard drive, RAM, and WiFi options.
