The GIGABYTE Booktop M1022

 

A box, is a box, is a box. Nothing fancy to see here, just specs and a product shot.

Open the box up and all the accessories are packed away under the netbook itself.

Take the protective wrap off the netbook and you get to see the glossy white and slightly pearlescent netbook.

The front edge of the netbook has little to see other than the headphone / mic ports and LED lights for hardware status.

The left side of the netbook has a heat grate, VGA out and the connector port for putting the netbook into the slick dock we will talk about later.

The right side of the netbook has the memory card reader, RJ-45 port and three USB ports.

The back of the netbook has nothing to see.

Open the cover and you get the first glimpse of the keyboard with all that you expect to find, including a multi-touch track pad. I could do without the Asian characters on the keyboard that clutter things up.

The screen has my favorite -- a glossy coating .

Despite packing in a massive 6-cell battery, the profile of the M1022 is surprisingly thin.

The coolest feature of the M1022 is the slick docking station that it ships with.

The rear of the dock has a VGA out, AC port, RJ-45 connector and a pair of USB ports.

    Response:
    Nice review, but you guys missed out on the best features: 1. Push the right click button when the system is off and those 6 LEDs show you how much battery you have left. 2. The touch pad may be small, but it uses an ELan tech smart mousepad syste
