I was really excited to hear about the new ultra portable laptops which HCL is coming up with. Now I have not been satisfied with the kind of products that HCL makes. But given the fact the EEE PC will take a while to launch in India I was really excited to hear about this news.
I was searching for a picture of the MiLeap and I came across this blog post where I saw these pictures. They really have the target audience as kids for the 14K laptops. I was hoping that it would look something like the palm folio. But if this is what it really looks like I would have second thoughts about buying it. I was so looking forward to buy a sub laptop.
The 29K laptop at least looks decent but given the price I would buy a full laptop rather than think of buying a sub laptop which seems underpowered. Now all I do is to wait for the launch of the EEE PC. Or the other better option is to just hope for a miracle that the final 14K product does not look like this picture.
UPDATE: While surfing I found a few pics of the Kohjinsha SH610 which looks really similar to the image on the blog. So there is still hope that the 14K model looks a little better than the one I saw on the blog.
UPDATE 2: The EEE PC will launch in India in January. No fixed dates I guess but I have my fingers crossed. More information on the official site. Just hoping that its the official site.
UPDATE 3: EEE PC launching in India on 2nd Feb
