The low-cost notebook market is getting pretty crowded as new models are being announced nearly every week. TweakTown writes they've had a quick look at an upcoming 10.2" notebook from GeCube that features a 1.6GHz VIA C7-D processor. The firm will OEM it out to anyone interested but they refused to put a MSRP on the device.
Inside said system is going to reside a VIA C7-D processor running at 1.6GHz (so not the new Nano but newer models probably will), Internal 64KB - L1 & 128KB - L2 cache memory and 400MHz FSB. It will be outfitted with DDR2 533 512 MB RAM with an additional single SODIMM slot expansion to 1024MB if required.

As far as the all important screen goes, it will be capable of a resolution of 1024 x 600. An 80GB 2.5" SATA hard will be packed in along with two speakers that output Intel HD audio. Included in the mix is 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11g wireless, a triplet of USB 2.0 ports.

As far as dimensions go, it comes in at 275mm (Width) x 188mm (Height) x 32mm (Depth) and weighs in at 1.5KG. It will come with gOS installed but it also supports Windows XP if you want it.
