Unboxing the Gigabyte M912
Arriving just minutes ago, straight from our Taiwanese mini-notebook dealer (yes, we have a dealer) was our very own Gigabyte M912. After seeing Chippy from UMPCPortal fondle the M912 the other day, we just had to get our hands on the first tablet mini-notebook hybrid. Sure I had seen the M912 at Computex, but it’s quite another experience to pull the netbook from its official packaging. As you will see in the video, the mini-tablet comes with quite a few accessories. Included are the obvious battery and AC power adapter, but they are joined by a luggage-like case, extra stylus, drivers disc, and user manual. We were a bit puzzled by an included ASUS CD case in our box; since our unit is right off the production lines, we assume that this case fell in somewhere along the way (read: don’t expect to find this). As for the actual netbook, we’ll have quite a bit to say in our upcoming mini-review. My initial thoughts? This little guy, with its stunning glossy black cover, looks sweet. Unfortunatley, we didn’t get the Mondrian patterned one we saw at Computex, but Gigabyte did tell us they will be releasing that funky system to retail in early fall. Stay tuned for our mini-review of the Gigabyte M912. Post your questions about the system below, and I will do my best to answer them in the mini-review.
