    Gigabyte T1028

    gigabyteT1028 By virtue of its swivel screen, the Gigabyte T1028 could very well be the direct follow-up to the best-selling Gigabyte M912 convertible netbook released not so long ago. If this is really the follow-up, then we say that it is definitely a big improvement from the M912. The Gigabyte T1028 differs from the M912 by virtue of the new configuration for Intel Atom N280 CPU, embedded HSDPA support, and the 10.1-inch Touch TFT display. Other than these three features, you'd still get the same features as the M912 including the 160GB HDD, Mobile Intel 945GSE Express Chipset, and more.
