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, chocolate keyboard, 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.
