MAK-CIK Fever


Yesterday I had read thru a news regarding our country Malaysia had already launch a new PC, They called it "MAK-CIK" (Makcik mean aunty in malay). It's specially designed for those communities who lived out-town & never used computer before...

The MAK-CIK PC is being designed to be lightweight and mobile and to work with any TV. The device is also expected to be equipped with Wi-Fi (and soon WiMAX)capabilities to enable remote connectivity. It will also have built in flash memory instead of a large hard disk capacity to achieve the desired form factor and lightness.

Here's Some MAK-CIK PC specifications:

* Does not have keyboard & mouse

* Has touch screen (copy iPOD concept..)

* Wide screen (mini plasma TV?)

* Easy accessible (Betul ke???)

* Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and WiMAX connectivity

* Flash memory

* Softphone (VoIP Phone)

* Personalization software developed by MIMOS


Makcik PC is available throughout the promotion period with lowest price about RM560 per PC. The screen interface was all in Bahasa Malaysia only... Sigh.

I'm wonder whether would it be support "SKYPE" application or not? If can, then can consider get one for my "Makcik"(my mum actually) as well since it was really cheap :) But I'm still prefer using Laptop, because this stupid MAK-CIK couldn't support on other applications & also can't do anything else except watching TV on it...


Hmm... Just curious that next time round when they launch the brand new palmtop & would they name it as PAK-CIK... who know?... hehe :)
