Sylvania g netbook MAGNI (Rebranded MSI Wind) Coming for Holidays

A few months ago we told you of Sylvania’s plans to enter the netbook market. Sylvania first released the 7-inch netbook g, a rebranded Everex Cloudbook, which received less than stellar reviews. Then the company released the Sylvania g Netbook Meso. And though we liked the Ubuntu Netbook Remix OS we couldn’t really recommend the 8.9-inch system over Acer’s Aspire one or Dells Inspiron Mini. It turns out the third time is the charm for the electric bulb manufacturer and the netbooks. Its 10-inch MAGNI netbook will be on shelves in time for the holidays. But its not the first time you have seen this system on sale. Sylvania sent us the first images of its MAGNI (which means great in Latin). Look familar? The company has worked with MSI to rebrand the popular Wind Netbook under its name. Given that the MSI Wind holds our Editors Choice award in the netbook category, we are pretty certain the Sylvania couldn’t do much else to improve an already good product. According to our interview with Paul Goldenberg, Managing Partner of Digital Gadgets (the company that sells under the Sylvania brand), it will sport a 120GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM and will be available in a choice of Ubuntu netbook remix and Windows XP. It will also run the Intel Atom processor. No word yet on pricing or battery size.
