NEC goes dual core with new netbooks

NEC wants to bring the latest and the greatest with a couple of new netbooks primed to hit the Japanese market, where one of them will rely on the new dual core Intel Atom N550 processor, while the other will pack in less processing muscle courtesy of a single core processor. The NEC LaVie Light BL550 won’t shirk from processing responsibilities since it will run on the 1.5GHz Atom N550 dual core processor, aided by a 10.1-inch display at 1366 × 768 resolution, a 320GB hard drive, 2GB RAM and Windows 7 Home Premium as the operating system of choice. With such specifications, you can expect to fork out top dollar – and those expectations are in line to the tune of $990 plus after conversion, making it one of the most expensive netbooks in the market. What do you think is the treshold for netbook prices before you disregard such a device and decide on a notebook instead?
