Android Book is A MacBook Air Look Alike
Consumers who like the look of a Macbook Air but don’t appreciate its expensive price tag may still have hope. At Computex in Taipei, a Macbook Air clone called the Android Book was recently spotted.
Obviously, from its name, this device not running OS X, but has Android OS, more specifically Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Judging from its appearance, it is a pretty convincing dupe of the MacBook Air, even replicating the Apple device’s brushed aluminum lid and the magnetic connector. Even its display has the exact same measurement as the MacBook Air, which is 13.3 inches diagonally.
Apart from the OS, however, its other features are very different from the ones on the original notebook. Inside, this device is packed with a 1.2 GHz A10 processor. Users may choose from among three solid state disk capacities for the internal storage: 8, 16, or 32 GB.
This Macbook Air lookalike will hit the market for $149. Of course, for those who prefer Microsoft to Android, there is also a Windows version available. This device, for its part, runs on an Intel Cedar Trail N2600 or N2800 processor, possesses internal storage with a capacity of 16 GB to 128 GB, and will retail at the higher price of $175.
For those who want a Macbook Air dupe, it is probably best to order one now since Apple will soon likely get a court order that will remove these off the shelves.
