Last week HCL Infosystems announced plans to sell two inexpensive micro-computers in India. Now PC Launches has tracked down a few more specs for those computers. As expected, the $350 MiLeap X series looks a lot like a typical Intel Classmate PC with a 900MHz Celeron processor, 2GB of SSD memory, 512MB of RAM and a 7 inch 800 x 600 pixel display. But the MiLeap Y looks a lot more exciting.

This $760 UMPC will sport an Intel A110 800MHx processor with integrated Intel 945GU graphics, 1GB of RAM, a 2.5GB 80 HDD, 1.3MP webcam, 802.11b/g WiFi, a 3-in-1 card reader, 2 USB ports, a 7-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen LCD, and Windows Vista Home Premium. And it will weight just 960 grams.

All told, the MiLeap Y could be one of the most powerful UMPC's I've seen for that price. That said, it still costs a few hundred more dollars than I'd be willing to spend on a portable computer. But if there was a way to put that high resolution touchscreen into a lower cost device, I'd be all over it.

I was wondering if this would be coming with a Solid State Drive because I am very attracted with that technology that I couldn't see have such a portable device with one. This small of thing would get bumped around with my other books and I just don't see a HDD being able to handle it very. (Mostly with windows)
