We will soon need a scorecard to keep track of all the entrants in the low-cost notebook arena. We knew as far back as January 2008 that Gigabyte Technology was working on such a notebook.

It will support either Linux or Windows XP and may even come with Bluetooth.

The Gigabyte M912 could be announced as early as the beginning of June. No pricing information is yet available.
