Non-U.S. Netbooks and More Shown Off at Intel Booth, Create Device Envy
While paying a visit to Intel's booth at Computex, we glimpsed a fleet of some spiffy-looking netbooks and tablets with various Intel wares inside. Though most of the models we found won't be on-sale in the U.S. for now, or possibly forever, we still thought you'd like to get a look at how Europe and the rest of the PC-loving world are living. Check out more laptop goodies, along with specs where available, and a massive gallery of more shots after the jump.

FIC Tycoon TVB00
We don't have the specs on this thing, but with a read finish and a name like Tycoon, it has to be quite luxurious.
Viewsonic VNB 145
Toshiba Satellite (or maybe Portege)
The sign said Satellite, but a label on the chassis said Portege so we're going to go with Portege, because this system is so thin and light. We love the metal deck and keys on this one.
