Just when you thought the Asus Eee PC was the only low-priced ultra-portable subnotebook on the market, Everex today launched their much anticipated Ultra-Mobile CloudBook (model CE1200V) featuring the latest Linux-based open source operating system from gOS.

Measuring 9″ in length and two pounds in weight, the Everex CloudBook is designed as an all-in-one mobile computing solution. Featuring a 1.2GHz VIA C7-M ULV mobile processor, the laptop averages five hours of battery life on a 4-cell, lithium-ion battery.

The most impressive features, when compared to other subnotebooks like the Asus Eee PC, are that the CloudBook features a 30GB hard drive, digital video output (DVI-I), 4-in-1 card reader and a higher resolution 1.3MP webcam.

Everex experienced some success last year with their budget-priced gPC desktop computer sold at Walmart stores around the US. With the launch of the CloudBook, Everex is positioned to bring yet another low-priced success on their hands. The CloudBook CE1200V will be available in late January at Walmart.com for $399.
