Another day, another promise of a low-cost computer, this one coming to us from the prolific folks at Gigabyte. According to DigiTimes, Gigabyte will be building its system itself (unlike its UMPCs and MIDs), and it'll be basing it on Intel's Basic Platform (otherwise known as Shelton). It'll also apparently pack a 7 to 9-inch LCD, which would seem to suggest that it's a laptop (which Shelton is also used for), although DigiTimes only describes the system as a "PC." Unfortunately, there's no word on what it'll cost, or any other details for that matter, but it'll apparently be ready by June of this year, by which time it'll likely have an even harder time to stand out from the budget-priced pack.
