sakura-minibookSakar International is showing off a familiar looking netbook at Toy Fair 2009 this week. The mini-laptop is clearly based on the same design as the 3K Razorbook 400, Elonex One T+, and a whole bunch of other laptops that are likely all coming from the same factory in China.

Long story short, the Sakar MiniBook is a cheap computer with a 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, a tiny keyboard, and outdated hardware including 3 USB 1.1 slots. The computer runs a simple version of Linux, and should be good enough for a young kid who basically just needs a web browser and instant messaging program. But thanks to the pokey 400MHz xBurst processor, you wouldn’ twant to use this machine for more CPU intensive tasks.

The netbook measures 8.3″ x 5.5″ x 1.2″ and weighs 1.5 pounds. It has a 2 cell, 2100mAh battery which should last for about 3 hours. And it ships with 1GB of Flash memory and 128MB of RAM. It does include built in 802.11b/g WiFi support, and there’s optionalsupport for GPRS, CDMA, EDGE, and WCDMA networks.
