The CW001 netbook

January 2, 2009 First International Computer's CW001 netbook is destined for US shores after arriving in the FCC database on the 31st of December last year. The 10.4-inch, Atom-based netbook is noteworthy for finding room for both a DVD-RW optical drive and an ExpressCard/34 slot - which appears to be a first for this form factor.

While those two features are a worthy differentiation from the countless other netbooks on the market, the other specifications are about the same as any other netbook:

  • Intel Atom CPU (1.6 GHz)
  • Intel GMA 945 graphics
  • Up to 2GB RAM
  • 10.1-inch display (1024x600)
  • 802.11b/g wireless
  • Bluetooth
  • 1.3 megapixel webcam
  • ExpressCard/34 slot
  • VGA output
  • Two USB 2.0 ports
  • 4 in 1 card reader (SD, MMC, Memory Stick/Pro)
  • CD-ROM/DVD-ROM/CD-RW/DVD-RW optical drive
  • No price or release date has been announced.
