Paul Lilly

We haven't seen a ton of innovation take place in the netbook market, which makes Gigabyte's upcoming TouchNote M1028 even more refreshing. The sleek-looking netbook boasts a convertible touchscreen and was being shown off at MWC in Barcelona.

The swivel-screen reportedly houses a 10-inch 1024 x 600 display. Outside of the display, Gigabyte's TouchNote M1028 sticks to the typical netbook blueprint, which calls for an Intel Atome N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, WiFi, SD card slot, ExpressCard slot, three USB 2.0 ports, a 1.3MP webcam, and Windows XP Home.
