Tongfang Magnesium Bodied Netbook

Magnesium bodied ultra portable netbook china
Magnesium Body Imini S8

Super slim, sleek and light! That’s how we like our ultra portable netbooks to be, and Tongfang’s new Imini S8 seems to fit the bill well at a price we quite like.

The Imini S8 shrugs off the usual plastic bodies of most cheap netbooks in favour of a high quality alloy-magnesium body. This not only helps keep the weight down, but also creates a very durable shell. Perfect for a computer meant to be thrown in a bag and lugged around all day.

The rest of the features are typical netbook, 10.1-inch screen, equipped with Intel’s Atom N270 processor (1.6GHz frequency / 512KB 2 cache / 533MHz FSB), Intel 945GSE + ICH7M chipset, 1GB DDR2 memory, 160GB hard drive, and Intel GMA950 high-performance integrated graphics.






The Imini S8 measures  260 x 180 x 13-21mm with an overall weight of 1.3Kg. The 10.1-inch wide screen offers a resolution of 1024 × 600.

Tongfang have also, wisely, decided to build in 3 USB 2.0 ports plus mini HDMI and a 5 in 1 media card reader. Battery life with the supplied lithium 3 cell pack is claimed to be around 2-3 hours.

All this in a sexy magnesium shell for 2600RMB ($380).
