Astone UMPC

On the early days of netbooks, Astone UMPC was on the line of what they call “Asus Eee PC Killers”. Its selling point versus the Eee PC before was the higher RAM (1GB), 60GB HDD and the bluetooth. But it seems that its VIA processor did not come along with it (just a thought). So now they are cutting 50% of the original price. Sells now at Php 9,995.00, roughly $203 USD. Not displayed on many stores but available at PC Corner, the store who offers Intel Atom 330 upgrade for Eee PC 1000H.

Written by Aldrin Cantos on September 29, 2008 – 11:05 am -

As most of us aren’t aware, Astone has been building a Nettop PC discretely. According to Yugatech, this could be the first sub-10K Nettop PC, bundled with a CRT monitor. The revealed specs is missing Wireless LAN and CD/DVD drive.

  • Intel Atom 1.6GHz
  • Intel BLK945GCLF
  • NCP 1GB DDR2 RAM 667MHz
  • 80GB SeaGate HDD
  • 5.1 audio
  • 10/100 Mbps Ethernet
  • 4 USB 2.0 ports
  • DVI/D, VGA ports
  • 15-inch CRT monitor

This looks pretty affordable at Php 9,999 despite the lack of CD/DVD drive and Wireless LAN. There’s also an upgrade option for a 16″ LCD, which will cost Php 3,000 more.
