This curious little critter doesn't seem to have much in the way of identifying marks, but it shows up in bunches when you search on eBay for "netbook." It sells for under $100, generally ships from Hong Kong, and runs varying versions of Windows CE on an underpowered VIA processor.

That's all we have for this knockoff roundup. If you liked this, you might also like "Attack of the iPhonies" or "12 Terrific Tech Cartoons."
