The CVS, a pharmacy chain (!?), prepares the marketing line of netbooks Sylvania shortly. The publicity material was leaked, appearing on Engadget and Digital Gadgets, and revealing many details of the specifications of the model that, in principle, will sell for an affordable $ 100, a bargain even in America, where a standard netbook goes for about $ 300.
The Sylvania is based on a C7-M ULV 1.2 GHz, VIA, comes with 1 GB of memory (DDR 533 MHz) Hard Disk (uahhh …) 30 GB, display 7 “(800 x 480) and the rest common to almost all netbooks (WiFi standard “b” and “g”, webcam and microphone, 10/100 Ethernet port, a DVI and two USB ports), all weighing just 900 grams. According to the announcement, netbook can even play videos from YouTube! not the HD, but want a device that would be too much even so humble.
What can discourage is the operating system, Windows CE. This version of the system serves as the basis for mobile systems from Microsoft, but it in itself is unfriendly to the end user, not to mention the scarcity of programs presented.
It is possible that this netbook is the Sylvania 7-inch Netbook shown on the SylvaniaNetbooks.com website, including the touchpad design which is visible on the CVS box. If this is the same netbook is has better specs than the $119 kMart netbook from last Black Friday but is still a subpar netbook unless you are specifically looking for a netbook running Windows CE.
