You don't have to pay 800 bucks for a MacBook Air lookalike. In fact, over in China, a mystery PC manufacturer is making 'em for around $250. So reports Shanzhaiben.com, having posted some specs and plenty of photos of the device.
The mystery netbook features a 12.1" 1366x768 display, an Atom N270 processor, a gig of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, Wi-Fi, and a 3200mAh battery—pretty standard netbook specs, in other words, except for the relatively dense display. Usual extra perks like a webcam are included, too.
Shanzhaiben.com says the device is only 3 lbs and 0.98" thick, though, which is definitely pretty thin and light for that form factor. More surprising still is the price: "17XX Yuan," so a range of roughly $249-263. That's even cheaper than Asus' 10.1" Eee PC 1005HA. No word on whether the machine will cross the Pacific, though.
