Android powered netbook looks like an old Macbook Air

Laptop computers were once the bread and butter of Shanzhai markets across China, but with the surge in smartphone and tablet popularity computer makers have been having a hard time, which could explain this Android powered generation one Macbook Air clone.

Although I’m not a fan of Android powered PC’s, I do see the advantages such as low processing power, battery life the availability of APPs and the need for a low-cost computing rig for those on a budget. It’s seems that this Android netbook ticks most of the boxes too with a price of just over $100 and a huge 10,000mAh battery.

The netbook also gets a 13.3-inch display with LED backlight, 1GB RAM and uses a Cortex A10 CPU clocked at 1.5Ghz rather than the an older (and more common) Intel Atom CPU.

For anyone interested in this Android Macbook Air clone, the company making them is called Southern Video Electronics.

    These 13.3″ have been on sale online for awhile, they also come in black color, and have hdmi ports, so that you can connect them to your lcd’s. They are priced at around $175-$195 depending on the site you purchase them from including shipping, and a little more (not too much) if you want them shipped via EMS and DHL

      I’ve seen the same design but running Windows on an Intel CPU. This is the first I’ve seen an Android, A10 combo though
