Gigabyte’s M912 might be a Tablet PC after all

Gigabytem912batteryWas it just yesterday when I thought the Gigabyte M912 was a pseudo-Tablet PC? Sure it had the touchscreen and convertible form factor, but had a few niggles to contend with. I couldn’t understand how it would qualify to use XP due to the requirements that Microsoft set forth on Ultra-Low Cost PCs. Even though the Gigabyte product page indicated XP, it appears to be a Vista-based machine after all. Of course, it all depends on which Vista Edition we’re talking about here since Home Basic doesn’t offer the Tablet PC functionality. Regardless, there’s at least hopes of this being a true Tablet PC now. Then again, with a maximum of 1 GB of RAM and battery life potentially under two hours mentioned by Engadget, it might make for a less-than-optimal Tablet experience, so we can’t stick a fork in this one yet. Have to wait for more details or confirmation on the battery life a bit more.
