Announced just over a week ago, the Jolibook has been confirmed to hold a price of £279 which is quite reasonable for a netbook but better is still to come. It packs a rather lavishing exterior (lid), a mean 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 250GB Hard Drive and a tidy 10.1” screen. In terms of graphics, the netbook only has a basic Intel HD graphics so nothing too exceptional but with a reasonable graphics processing unit, it will be able to perform at the best of time – and lets face it, you don’t really use a netbook for playing games?
No unlike other netbooks which have Linux or some other dumbed down OS, Jolibook have developed their own OS called ‘Jolicloud OS’ which supposedly went down earlier this year as a great success.
The Jolibook can hold a very credible 7 hours until it dies making it very competitive against its competition.
Tariq Krim, the founder of the company, tweeted earlier today (22nd November) that the first shipments of the mighty Jolibook will start arriving today – and if you’re still to order yours, you can do so via the manufactures website or via Amazon.
As much as I want to say this is a break through for netbooks, it isn’t anything to jump up and down about as Blackberry with their PlayBook, announced earlier last month, does cram a whopping 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB RAM and you don’t have to unfold it and ‘faf’ around with it.
Good news is that obviously this manufacture are now going to benchmark the way forward for all new netbooks with dual-core processors and lightweight operating systems. What do you think? Would you prefer a Blackberry PlayBook to a Jolibook?
