Uni-V netbooks

Chinese electronics maker Uni-V is looking for distributors for its line of 7 inch netbooks. The machines aren’t going to win any awards for power. They mini-laptops have 7 inch, 800 x 480 pixel display, a 450MHz CPU, 128MB of RAM, and just 512MB of flash memory. They run Windows CE or a simple version of Linux. Each has 2 USB ports, 802.11b/g WiFi, and a handful of basic applications for viewing or editing office documents or playing media files.

But one thing that sets these Uni-V mini-notebooks apart from similar cheap netbooks is the design. No, the keyboards arn’t particularly roomy and the touchpads are small. But Uni-V was showing off a line of attractive lids for these netbooks at CES. Umm yeah, that’s about it. Pretty lids. Otherwise thse little guys look a lot like your average cheap Chinese netbook.

You can find a few more photos after the break.

  1. It is not real clear in those pictures, but. . .
    Are the touch pad buttons “L” shaped?

    Might suit both the folks who like them on the sides of the
    touchpad and those who like them below the touchpad.

    1. Yes, the touchpad buttons are L-shaped. But they do not cover the entire length nor width, so you will likely find yourself clicking on the corners of the touchpad.

      1. At least it shows an attempt at a “new idea” –
        May not be practical, but at least somebody is trying. 😉
