Maybe it's a bit harsh to call this thing a MacBook rip, they're just taking a few cues from the uber-successful Apple design after all, but with Haseenote's design, production and distribution all set firmly in Korea, what are they going to do about it? Questionably relevant design comparisons aside, this new JIVE W205R looks like a nice little laptop. The 12-inch screen runs at 1280 x 800 pixels, and the 1.66GHz Core Duo T2050, 1GB of RAM, 80GB SATA HDD and DVD burner all sound plenty spicy. The Radeon Xpress 200M with 64MB of VRAM won't exactly burn through graphics chores, but it's better than some integrated alternative. But the best news is that Haseenote managed all this fun in a 2.7 pound enclosure for a bit more than $1000 USD. Not bad at all.
