Asus’ first netbook that boasts of the new Intel Atom N570 processor has finally arrived in the US, where it will be a wee bit speedier compared to the N550. After all, it does pack a dual-core N570 1.66GHz chip – now, if only software programmers ensure that their software makes full use of both processors in order to maximize its efficiency, right?
