archo10-1 It seems one of the most widely talked about subjects recently has been that of the Netbook. Seems like all the rave now as many of the major companies are now putting out Netbooks to satisfy the desire of those who don’t need a lot of computing power, but just want something small and light to access the web on the go.

We happened to be looking at the Archos website and notice they have a Netbook in their roster though they are calling it a MiniPC. Archos a great company known for their portable media devices like the Archos 705 WiFi and now their Internet Media Tablets such as the Archos 5 and 7, have dipped into the Netbook game as well. Taken from their website:

“With Microsoft® Windowsâ„¢ XP, its built-in webcam, its 160 GB hard drive and its WiFi and USB 3G-ready connection features, we’re sure it’s the MiniPC you’re waiting for.

But there’s more. You’re ready to go with the ARCHOS 10 because it comes fully equipped with must-have software and solutions.
