Hercules eCAFE Slim HD, EX HD

Hercules has rolled out a couple of eCAFE branded netbooks in the UK market. First is the Slim HD netbook which is only 0.8-inch thick and weighs under 2 pounds (1.9). Like most netbooks, it sports the usual trio of USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet port, microphone and headphone jack.

Then we have the eCAFE EX HD which is multimedia netbook boasting massive 13 hours of battery life. Heck, the company has thrown in media touch controls and HDMI port as well to let you watch the videos on a bigger display / HDTV.

One thing they do not clearly mention on their site is the OS it runs (unless you dig deep down and find the technical spec page).

    “Storage: 16GB extensible to 72GB: 8GB Flash (iNAND) + 8GB SDHC card” is probably what you intended to write.

    Prices?

      The specs were copied from the vendor’s site. In reality, what it really means is you can get only 16GB of (offline) store. :D
