Good news for those who lived in Japan. Averatec has decided to launch its new Averatec netbook in the Japanese market on October 15th, 2008. The new Averatec AVN0270N is powered by a 10.2-Inch LCD Screen with a WSGA resolution (1,024×600), a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, up to 2GB, and 160GB of HDD. I think it is better than the Asus Eee-PC. The netbook also features Microsoft Windows XP home, 3 USB ports, a multicard reader, WiFi b/g, 1.3MP camera and a battery life span of 2.5 hours.
