Every once in a while, a little Chinese manufacturer will make a clone of a high-end product that actually manages to outdo the original. That's the case with the Malata A802 (via Cloned in China), a rip-off of Sony's Vaio P netbook. While the Vaio P is a run-of-the-mill tiny netbook with a huge price tag, the Malata is a badass touchscreen netbook with a...less ridiculous price.
This baby packs a 1.6 GHz Atom N270 processor, GMA 950 graphics, an 8.9” resistive touchscreen, chocolatekeyboard, trackpoint, and handwriting recognition. It has 1 GB of RAM, a 16 GB SSD, 1.3 MP webcam, B/G/N WiFi, and 3 hours of working battery life. It runs Windows 7, and a mobile 160 GB HDD is packaged with every unit.
The cost? Around $588 USD. That's expensive for a netbook, but cheaper than a Vaio P. If you've been looking at grabbing a P, you might want to save yourself some cash (and net yourself a touchscreen) by nabbing this baby when it hits Chinagrabber.
Centurion Corporation said it has agreed to acquire a piece of land located at Seberang Perai Selatan in Penang, Malaysia, for RM6.3 million ($2.45 million). This marks the group’s first acquisition in another state of Malaysia outside of Johor.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
