The Asus Eee is so popular that it has become the target of pretty much every PC manufacturer. ECS is the latest company to finally launch a competitor on this low-cost (< $500) new sub-notebook segment.
But unlike the Cloudbook from Everex, ECS actually has a good shot at doing some damage. First, it is a nice design. Secondly, it has a 3G access built-in, which can be a benefit (always-on access) and a disadvantage (cost of the subscription). The lack of optical drive might also turn-away customers, but hey, the Macbook Air doesn’t have one either. Obviously, there is WiFi and Bluetooth should be in too.
