The Shanzhai vendors have announced a $290 MacBook Air "inspired" laptop which features some improvements over the original.

Improvements:
1. Full metal jacket for enhanced rigidity and better thermal sinking.
2. It features a frameless 11-inch screen instead of the Mac Air’s 13-inch screen, for increased mobility.
3. It has 2 USB ports and a removeable battery, plus a reserved PCIe slot inside for a 3G module (no 3G on the MacBook Air).
4. The dimensions of the device are 277x187x25mm; slightly thicker than the Mac Air but also lighter at 1.33kg (MacBook Air is 1.36kg).

Other Specifications:
Processor: Intel Atom 1.6GHz
RAM: 1GB DDR2
HD: 2.5inch 160GB
Screen: 11.1 inch, 1366*768 resolution
Connectivity: Ports are mainly on left and right sides (as opposed to the back), 2 USB ports, earphone port, power, one RJ-45 port. A card-reader and status lights on the left side.
Battery: 3500mAh (removable)
