If it has a halfway decent processor, and retails for a halfway decent price, I am very interested

I gotta agree with some of the comments...ECS has never impressed me. This may be a good little laptop, but I'm a little skeptical of the quality.

Once upon a time ECS made good mainboards. Alas, now the parent company of ECS proudly makes sure that ECS bites. PC Chips, you're a good old friend--to some idiot.

I've never had an opportunity to use an older ECS board. All of the ones I've used have been lacking in many areas, and I just don't deal with them any more. Unfortunately, I'm afraid that this G10IL will suffer the same flaws as there mainboards.

I may be surprised, and it may be good, but I don't think it will.

Call me once bitten, twice shy. I won't sink "sub-$500" into these wonders. Or less than $300. Or anything.
