The folks over at DigiTimes are reporting that HP is planning to release some new netbooks, despite many folks opting for tablet devices nowadays. These new netbooks will sport Intel’s latest 1.66GHz Atom N455 and 1.83GHz N475 processor. They will also be given the boost in terms of sporting the faster DDR3 RAM, instead of the more common (and slower) DDR2 that is commonplace on many netbooks nowadays. Such a move is apparently an attempt by HP to protect its position in the entry-level notebook business, which includes netbooks. The report also mentions that the netbook market will be heating up in October when Intel releases its next-generation, dual-core Atom CPU. With increased competition, the good news is that the consumer will hopefully benefit from lower prices, as major manufacturers look to compete with each other.
