Netbook Market Getting More Crowded with LG Momo X110


It may have started with just the Asus Eee PC, but that is certainly not the only subnotebook on the market anymore. One of the latest entries into the world of netbooks is the LG “Momo” X110, a little laptop that happens to have 3G under the hood as well. The LG X110, also known as the “Momo” (More Mobile), gets powered by an Intel Atom processor, just like everyone else.

Other features include a keyboard with full-size enter and shift keys, optional Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, integrated LG Smart Cam 1.3 megapixel webcam, multicard reader, integrated WiFi, optional 3G (we think), and three hard drive options (80GB, 120GB, or 160GB). Another very notable feature is the possible inclusion of Windows Vista Home Basic, which is distinctly different than the XP and Linux offerings that we see from elsewhere.

Personally, I think Vista could be problematic with Atom and 512MB-1GB of RAM. You may be better off doing a downgrade to XP unless you upgrade the RAM substantially. Can Atom even handle Vista properly? Maybe with no Aero?
