Local netbook makers have been popping up one after another over the past few years. Some are genuinely bringing new and innovative products to the market, others bring the copies and then there are others that see the ever growing netbook market as a way to diversify and make a quick buck!
Today, we came across this ‘g’ branded netbook, which falls flat on its face in the ‘make a quick buck’ category.
Take a look at the pictures and tell us that this wasn’t designed by someone rubbing their hands together with ‘$’ in their eyes!
Nothing on the ‘g’ really makes any logical sence! For some reason the web camera is located to the right of the already tiny 7 inch screen. This in turn makes the screen seem even smaller due to the non-symmetrical design. Not only is that camera eating away at screen real estate, but its always there staring and probing you! At least when they’re placed top dead center you can ignore them!
Then there’s that extremely tiny tiny tiny tiny track pad! What on earth were they thinking! Users all over the globe slate netbooks that come with tiny track pads so what do Sylvania, the makers of the ‘g’, do?

We don’t thing the big 3, Asus, Acer and Hassee have much to worry about for now!
