Twinhead C8 UMPC

The ultra-portable market has been very popular lately, with most newly released models offering at least some comparison to the Eee PC and some even with the Everex Cloudbook.

The Twinhead C8 features a pearl white outer shell and features and 8-inch display with a nice 1024 x 600 resolution, which can make a big difference when compared to a 7-inch display with an 800 x 480 resolution. Aside from the display the C8 is powered by an AMD LC-800 processor with 1GB of RAM and features a 1.8-inch 20GB hard drive, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, Ethernet, two USB ports, one VGA out and a 4-in1 card reader.

Sadly, similar to many of these other ultra-portables we have been seeing lately, the C8 will not be available in the US. Instead it is currently available in Malaysia where it retails for RM$1799 (around $560 US) and is expected to be selling in Singapore shortly where it will retail for S$699 (around $507 US). Twinhead is also know as GammaTech here in the US, so its possible that we may see a similar variant, most likely under a slightly different name hit the US at some point.

    I bought the C8 last week and found out that the resolution is not 1024×600 but 800×480. The machine is ok but a bit slow when running on Win XP.
