Archos is not known as a notebook company, rather the firm is known for its line of media players. That didn't keep Archos from officially announcing its first netbook today called the Archos 10. As the name alludes to, the machine has a 10-inch screen. Archos says that it plans to announce more netbooks in the coming months as well.

The rig weighs 2.8 pounds and sells for $399, a common price for the genre. Storage is to a 160GB HDD, 1GB of RAM, it uses an Atom N270 CPU and runs Windows XP. Archos includes preloaded software and Laptop says that software includes about $100 worth of multimedia and productivity applications.

Laptop says it is pretty sure the Archos machine is nothing more than a branded version of the ECS G10L or Hasee MJ125 netbooks. The keyboard is said to be sized well, but the right shift key is placed to the right of the up arrow key in an Asus Eee style layout (which I don’t like). Included software features XnView Photo Editor, Vtuner Web Radio & TV Player, BitDefener AV 2009, and a Parental filter.
