What would scare me away from Mitac is the look I had at their websites. I looked at the Taiwan and the US website. The 8050 is nowhere to be found, nor are any manuals, drivers, utilities for it or hardly anything. I know that you can say it is new, but, if you are interested in an 8050, I suggest you check out their sites. I can generally get a decent idea of who I am dealing with by what their website looks like, and Mitac's is quite pitiful, unfortunately. It would make me worry about where any future support was coming from.
