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 […]

AMD demonstrate its Zacate low-power processor
Photo courtesy of AnandTechAMD has made a tradition of holding a “get together” media event while the Intel Developer Conference is in full swing. Today, they have demonstrated their Zacate CPU, a direct competitor for Intel’s ATOM. That means Netbooks, and possibly Tablets. So, what’s so cool about Zacate? Well, the idea is that it’s a low-power (9W-18W) chip that comes with an integrated graphics that outperforms Intel’s current graphics […]

Acer Aspire One Happy drops model numbers
Looks like Acer has finally realized that having a slew of alphanumeric model numbers for their Aspire One range of netbooks might just get a tad too confusing after a while, which is why we’re ecstatic that the latest model is known as the Acer Aspire One Happy. Basically, it doesn’t seem as though it is new, since this is more or less a rebranded Aspire One D255 that comes […]

Packard Bell Dot SE netbook arrives in Europe
Since Acer owns Packard Bell, don’t be surprised that the Packard Bell Dot SE which will arrive in Europe closely resembles the recently unveiled Acer Aspire One D255 netbook. When it comes down to specifications, everything is more or less identical – case in point, a 10-inch display, an Intel Atom N550 1.5GHz dual core processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory (why not DDR3, we wonder), a 250GB hard drive, and […]

HP Mini 5103 to come thanks to HP service manual
A netbook used to be a casual computing device, but it seems that the market has evolved to break down the netbook market into further segments such as a luxury class as well as the business crowd. The HP Mini 5103 is one such model which falls under the latter, where it will closely resemble its predecessors by featuring an aluminum and magnesium alloy, all-metal case. Other features include a […]

Asus netbook ambitions scaled down with iPad's success
Since the iPad was released, it has certainly performed extremely well on the sales front, and it is confirmed that the pie did not get bigger for everyone, much to Asus’s chagrin as they have lowered their netbook shipment estimates for the summer to between 7 and 8 million Eee PCs shipped, despite the period being the usual peak for Eee PC sales. This has indirectly proved the cannibalization of […]

Augen Genbook 74 is an Android-powered netbook
We’ve heard of the Augen tablet coming from Kmart, and here is news on another device from the folks at Augen – the Genbook 74, which is a $99 device, making it one of the cheapest netbooks around at the moment. It will also be sold at Kmart, offering cookie cutter specifications that seem to hail from three years ago. We’re talking about a relatively tiny 7″ display, a 400MHz […]

Sony Vaio P clone heading to the US
While we’ve seen our fair share of Vaio P clones in the past, it is safe to say that most of them do not make it to the US, but there is an exception to the rule this time round with the Pocket Sony Style L80 Mini Laptop. Similar to the actual Vaio P, this model comes in a compact design that lacks a touchpad right below the keyboard, where […]

Gateway NS series of notebooks to carry Intel Core i-Series processors
Gateway’s NS series of notebooks will come with Intel’s Core i-Series processors later this month, where the displays will come in varying sizes which range from 11.6″ to 15.6″, where they will run on Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 mobile processors. The smallest among them would be what you see above, the Gateway NS10 that will sport an 11.6″ display at 1,366 x 768 resolution, offering up to […]

Samsung N230 Slim netbook now official
Samsung’s N230 Slim netbook has just gone official, where this netbook remains true to its name by measuring a mere 2.3cm in thickness. Tipping the scales at a mere 1.2kg, one of the reasons why it looks slim is due to an optical illusion – Samsung’s engineers decided to place its hinges in the rear, hence making it pleasing to look at from many angles. While a 7 hour battery […]

Acer and Asus stops netbook releases
Did we hear it correctly? Asus, who has released enough netbooks to put my family line to shame, alongside Acer will freeze netbook releases at least until the middle of next month according to Digitimes. One of the main reasons would be to clear their inventory before the Atom N550 processor which is meant to be released in Q3. Intel intends to rol out the dual-core Atom N550 processor sometime […]

Enermax Aeolus N14 cooling pad targets netbook owners
Own a netbook? Well, netbooks aren’t exactly noted for shipping with high end specifications that will end up melting your family jewels if you use it for number crunching long enough, but with the advent of dual core processors in netbooks, things could heat up a little. Still, we don’t think it warrants a cooling pad, but if you’re a paranoid android, then go ahead and pick up the Enermax […]
