Linux-based Cloudbook could give Asus a run for its money

Everex is known for its gPC, a low-cost Linux-based desktop computer that it sells through Wal-Mart and other retailers. Everex's newest product, which is planned for release next month, is a Linux-based subnotebook intended to compete with the Asus Eee PC. An anonymous source informed that the Cloudbook, which will be available for $400 next month, is equipped with a 1.2GHz Via processor, 512MB of RAM, a seven-inch screen, a 30GB hard drive, and a 1.2 megapixel camera. The laptop will ship with gOS, the same Linux-based operating system that is featured on Everex's gPC.
