If you were claustrophobic and sitting in a room filled with all of the competitors trying to step to Asustek's Eee PC—you would be freaking out right now. This time, the wannable comes in the form of the G10IL PC from Taiwanese manufactuerer Elitegroup Computer Systems. Users can expect Intel's new Atom processors, an 8.9 or 10.2-inch screen, up to 2GB of RAM, 7.2Mbps mobile broadband (HSPA) connectivity and your choice of the XP or Linux OS.

Other features include: SSD or HDD (depending on model), 3 USB 2.0 ports, an embedded 1.3-megapixel web camera, ethernet and modem jacks, WLAN and Bluetooth and a 4-in-1 card reader. Plus it has a look that Apple fans might dig. Sounds pretty good, but we won't know until April how it compares in one of the most important categories—price. [Laptoping via Crave]
