ECS

So now that I've covered ECS motherboards and video cards, do you remember way back in the beginning when I stated that those two components encompassed merely a half of the company's business? It may come as a bit of a surprise to you, but ECS manufactures a whole slew of other products, but us retail consumers would never know it, because they're not branded with the ECS name. Instead, they're sold to other companies, typically smaller, localize companies, who slap their name on it and sell it as one of their own. So, even though you may see the ECS logo on some of the products on this page, that's not how they'll come to market. The first products we were shown were a Core i5 notebook, an Atom-powered netbook, and an Atom-powered, multi-touch tablet PC.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although those first three products were manufactured by the same division that manufactures the motherboards and video cards, ECS already had a laptop division when it purchased laptop manufacturer Uniwill a few years ago. As such, it's a bit unclear how the two divisions will co-exist. Here are a few photos of the laptops already created and offered by ECS.

 

 

 

ECS also manufactures a Classmate. Classmates are Intel's low-cost netbooks for children in developing nations, similar to the One Laptop Per Child initiative. The Classmate has a sturdy design and handle for easy carrying.

 

 

 

ECS also makes desktops...

 

 

And "Net Boxes", which are extremely small, as can be seen next to the mouse and speaker in the last photo. The motherboards behind glass are simply showing off what's actually inside the chassis.

 

 

 

And just when you thought ECS couldn't possibly manufacture more, yes, they make displays as well. At Computex, ECS was showing off an all-in-one multi-touch panel (photos 1-4 below) and an all-in-one 3D panel (photos 5-8 below).

 

 

 

 

 

ECS even showed off some new e-readers - some with touch, some with manual controls. Basically, ECS designed and manufactured the hardware and now they'll sell it to another company that will put their software (and logo) on it.

 

 

 

Lastly, I'd like to thank James for showing us around the booth. I don't know about you guys, but Kevin and I certainly didn't realize everything ECS does. They may be a motherboard manufacturer first and foremost, but they're clearly much more, and have a much larger impact on the computer industry than we realized.
