Gigabyte has quietly released their T1028X touchscreen netbook, an updated version of the T1028M that was announced back at CeBIT2009. Some noticeable key changes are: a change in processor (to a 1.66Ghz Intel Atom N280 CPU with a faster FSB) and a higher resolution display (1366×768).
A higher resolution means that you’d be able to see more on the screen at any given time, but it would also mean that it’d be harder to pinpoint (touch) certain items on the screen as well. As we all learned in Economics 101, there’s always tradeoffs and opportunity costs.
Some other tech specs of this new machine include 1 GB of RAM, a 160 GB hard drive, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an ExpressCard 34 slot.
Prices have also relatively higher, compared to the T1028M model netbook. The T1028X is available online in Europe for roughly €497.70, excluding tax, or $702.
