Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) will be releasing the G10IL sub-notebook this September, says Henry Kwan, VP of sales, ECS to Laptop Magazine in a recent interview. What makes the G10IL special is that ECS has managed to squeeze in EDGE, HSUPA, and HSPDA mobile broadband support, but will not feature support for WiMAX. This 'netbook' comes in two screen sizes, 8.5" and 10". The version most likely to enter US markets in September is the 10" model. Prices start US $399. Most likely, the $399 variant could feature a 8 GB SSD with Linups Lite 9.4 Linux. A variant with an 80 GB HDD with Windows XP is also on the cards. ECS says that the G10IL is the first netbook designed specifically for the business user, than students.

Well, I'm looking at all my school work, job work, windows files, and office files, and they don't add up to beyond 4gb. I think thats about average, and what they considered...

The price is better though; $399 beats $649 any day.
It is most likely based on the Intel Atom, probably has a 1024 x 600 screen, 4/6-cell battery options, 512 MB/1 GB RAM options, 8 GB SSD / 40 GB 1.8" HDD....
As with most new subnotebooks, it will be quite similar to the EEE 901, except cheaper.
