If you’ve long associated Archos with PMPs, well, associate no longer.  The long time maker of portable media players unveiled their first netbook today, the 10s.  It’s slim and slender at just 20mm – that’s just 8mm thicker than the current the 3G iPhone – and includes an Intel Atom processor, your choice of 60GB or 160GB hard drives, HSDPA, WiFi, 10-inch screen and is supported by the preferred PC OS; Windows XP.

The Archos S10 Netbook is slated for an April launch, which will be followed by a 9-inch tablet version.  Price hasn’t been announced for either computer.

Update: The S10 is now available for purchase starting at $400.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
