Hercules eCAFÉ Netbook Comes From Nowhere With 250GB HDD

Woah, a netbook from Hercules? They're better known for game controllers and multimedia peripherals, but the 10.1-inch (1024x600) EC-1000W seems a decent first effort. Usual netbook specs aside, it comes with 802.11n Wi-Fi and 50GB of online storage.

For $US400, 250GB is also a good amount of hard disk space, and Windows 7 is a plus (though that means it won't be available until late October).

There are some nice design touches, too: a glossy motif on the lid, chiclet-style keys. and custom software to manage driver updates, Webcam and Wi-Fi management. OpenOffice.org V3 is also pre-installed. Not bad at all. [Hercules]
