Gigabyte has already revealed information about its upcoming entry into micro notebooks ahead of tomorrow's Computex show. The M912 separates itself from a slew of competitors from ASUS and others by switching to convertible tablet form. The 8.9-inch LCD can be left in a traditional notebook mode or spun around to be used as a touchscreen. The system itself will share the same 1.6GHz Atom CPU and 1GB of memory as many upcoming mini-PCs but will carry an unusually large hard drive, ranging between 120GB and 250GB depending on the exact model.
The first version of the system will come preloaded with Linux and build in a 1.3-megapixel webcam as well as Bluetooth and an SD card reader. Gigabyte hasn't disclosed launch details, but is expected to price the system above $500 and more formally announce the PC at Computex on Tuesday, with a worldwide launch likely to follow.
