Atom N450 Netbooks at 2010

n450 atomArrival of next-gen Atom chips the N450, will have a great impact next year.


Search for netbooks on Amazon.com and you'll notice that for all the different models you can buy, the specs are mostly the same: 10.1-inch screen, 160GB hard drive, 1GB DDR2 of memory, and a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor. If you're willing to spend the money, you can upgrade to 2GB ram and a 1.66GHz Atom N280, but that's about it.

Manufacturers signed an agreement with Intel to hold off on releasing netbook based on the new Atom lineup.All of the major netbook players (Acer, Asus, Lenovo, and MSI) are set to launch their line of more powerful Atom N450 based netbooks next year on the month of January.

We will expect1.83GHz Atom N470 including 2GB of RAM which will set a new standard of netbook specs. Despite the processing power upgrade, these processors may still not be enough to handle HD video playback, the litmus test for small gadgets nowadays. A pairing of Nvidia's Ion graphics technology with the Atom N450/N470 may still be needed before you can get your HD video on the go, but no such hardware is planned for release.

Elonex Netbook That Looks Like A Macbook

There are plenty newcomers in the netbook or mini notebook products range, one of them is Elonex with the product called Elonex Webbook. Elonex, for you who never heard it before is a company founded in 1986 to offer computer and related IT services direct to customers allowing them to exercise more control and benefit from improved flexibility.

Anyway enough for Elonex introduction, let's look at their product the Elonex Webbook. This product is probably created for consumers who wants a different look or feel for a netbook. Although the specs is just the same as other netbooks. Starting from the Intel Atom N270 processor, 1 Gigabyte RAM, and Intel 945GSE chipset with the usual onboard GMA 950.

Looking to the picture, we can see what differentiate this product from others is the design that looks like the MacBook Pro. They sell a white keyboard version of the Webbook, and if you look at it, it really looks like a Macbook!

Observing the design, this Webboook from Elonex looks like a little bit heavier than the usual netbook.

One important thing I noticed is that the battery is permanently installed to the netbook. It is possible to open because screws exist and should be able to open but inside it looks like the is cable soldered to the netbook.

The performance of this netbook is standard. Now as a conclusion, people who are going to buy it must decide from the price tag.

Hi netbook reviewer readers, after my last post about my blog being sandboxed by Google, I was quite dissapointed and just simply laid back to wait what Google will do to my blog.

It didn't took a long time to get back detected by Google and now I'm out of the sandbox!

Below is a video I found about Google penalty, maybe it will be of your interest so that Google penalty will not happen to you.

The Blurry Line Betweeen Netbooks and Notebooks

The distinction between the Netbook and the Notebook can be considered blurry because of the development on both categories.


Advancement in notebooks recently are the development of thin and light notebooks with consumer ultra-low voltage (CULV) processors. This is an advantage in order to make smaller notebooks.The size of notebooks could reanch around 11 inch screen sized netbooks.

On otherwise the Netbook, which is defined as a machine with its small keyboard, small screen, and lack of an optical drive will certainly compete with notebooks which is getting thinner and sell roughly for the same price.

It's clear this is mostly arbitrary. If there were a technical definition Netbooks would have been defined as something with a much smaller screen, at least as small as 7 inches, and a more expensive starting price.

The combination of Atom Processors and NVIDIA ION GPU in netbooks is probably the recent trend and recently reported that these kind of netbooks will show up in the US in the form of Samsung N510.

The recent report from Liliputing.com claimed that the Samsung N510,will be around in September 2009. The ability of this netbook is very advance, it will have a HDMI out and able to play Blue Ray. Reports are not confirmed whether this product will come out with an optical drive.

This beefed up netbook in theory will have a similar graphic power compared to the Ge Force 9400 M, and this is very good news for gamers. Price of the Samsung N510 is reported to be around $599.

The downside is probably due to the battery life and this may push away netbook consumers. As a gaming machine, it is still questioned but I guess a lot of folks out there need a machine like the Samsung N510 to fulfill their mobile gaming activity, especially those online 3d MM0RPG such as Warcraft Online.

The consumers then mus decide whether they aim for the cost, or rather have a graphically-boosted Netbook, a thin-and-light, or a budget laptop with a better core processor?

LG Netbook 3G Ad


A Video of the LG x110 3G netbook. Interested?


Sony launched its P-Series Lifestyle PC in January. It is an 8-inch laptop computer that competes or maybe succeeds the netbook-level computers. It is very small so it could suit in to a wallet. Very compact sized form factor.

This computer doesn't fit in to a netbook, a laptop or a tablet category. It is already August but the P-Series already went to a price drop.

When it appeared, reviewers were keen on the P-Series’ form factor but less so on its sluggish hardware and its almost $2,000 price tag.This is probably why it lacked on sales.

NVIDIA Will Release ION LE Graphic Processor


Nvidia has introduced a new Ion integrated graphics processor which is called the Ion LE. This chip is an entry-level netbook graphics chip that will only support up to DirectX 9. The chip competes in the low price graphic chip market while still providing great performance compared to Intel’s 945GSE chipset and GN40 part.

Netbooks are meant to be low cost, and NVIDIA's decision is on the track. However, the technology would probably have a short life because in the future it couldn't run any OS higher than Windows XP.

Windows 7 Netbooks Will Cost More?

We all know that the netbook targets consumers because of the low cost price with low specification that couldn't run the Vista OS. It made consumers happy but of course Microsoft has their problems because netbooks doesn't help the sales of Vista OS due to the fact that netbooks aren't capable to run Vista and seems stuck to the previous windows OS which is the Windows XP.

Appleinsider.com published an article that stated Microsoft will increase pricing in their new OS the WIndows 7. The ability of netbooks to run Windows 7 will involve both a redefinition of what a netbook is and a change in pricing, because Microsoft does not want to continue making lower and lower margins on the PC operating system software business it monopolizes.

acer android netbooktry google androidAlthough the recent update in my blog was that Acer will not release any new netbooks in Q2 2009, recent rumor published on CNET said that an Acer netbook with Google Android as an operating system will be released this year. No more news yet whether the netbook specification will have an upgrade or not. The development of Pinetrail and launched date is not yet confirmed although Intel recently published a new information regarding to their decision of continuing Ato Z CPU's.

MSI U-100 Topped the Top Loved Netbooks

Earlier this month PC Pitstop published an article about their survey on netbooks. The survey was done by asking readers of the site with questions such as How satisfied are you with this PC? Is this PC running slow? Is this PC hanging or requiring frequent reboots? Based on these questions they narrowed the results by filtering makes and models.

The result was there were 5 Netbook that satisfy and loved by the readers.

Well, according to their survey MSI U-100 was the most lovable netbook! This netbook have mainstream specs such as 10-Inch display, 1.6 GHz Intel Atom Processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB Hard Drive, XP Home and 6 Cell Battery Black. Also you should know that the MSI has integrated Bluetoothand supports 802.11 draft N.

asus eee pc t 101H

The news broke out that Acer and ASUS, two major companies that are well known for its netbook series, are said to halt the development of new netbooks in the second half of 2009. The decision according to Digitimes is related to the Intel’s move in delaying the launch of the Pine Trail-M platform up until Q1 2010.



The two companies will probably now be focusing on the thin and light notebook segment using Intel’s CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) processors while the Atom CPUs would probably be not further developed.

People who are expecting the ASUS EEE PC T101H tablet netbook would also be worried because it wouldn't be released until Windows 7 launches in October.

A Review of HP Compaq Mini 110c

Although recently CNET published that the HP company was provoked by Greenpeace in the cause of dangerous products contained in HP products, I really think this news breaking story wouldn't be a burden towards the sales of HP netbooks world wide.


In this article, I would like to review the HP Compaq Mini 110c. This product is actually based on the Compaq Mini 700, but differences are of course identified. The 110c looks cheaper because of its materials used. It has a coarser matte black plastic finish and no 'frameless' display. One upside is that the 10 in display has an anti-glare finish which is suitable for outdoor use.

The complete look is that this netbook seems sturdy enough and quite charming with its glossy lid. When you open the lid, you can see an interior with 92 per cent full-size keys that are comfortable to use

Unfortunately, the touchpad features buttons that would not appeal users because the buttons remain on either side. A strange arrangement but likely you could get used to it.

The hardware is pretty the same mainstream thing. It comes with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive and also get 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a webcam.

Connectivity is also similar, though this model does share the Mini 700's lack of a second audio jack, with just one port serving both headphones and microphones. The usual ports found are 3 USB ports, a VGA output, multi-format card reader and Ethernet port.


Audio visual of this HP Compaq Mini 110c netbook is much like most netbooks. While bright and sharp, the display is merely passable where colour production is concerned, while the speakers barely pass muster so you will need a good set of headphones.

The price is affordable and this netbook costs around $419. It's worth to know that Windows XP is the operating system. I think HP has produced a good netbook in the Compaq Mini 110c. The keyboard maybe the main advantage but it doesn't offer anything special compared to other netbooks flourishing the market.

What A Future Netbook Will Look Like

smartbooks

Netbooks are bound to evolve into gadgets that are capable for advanced purposes. A new generation of netbooks will be named smartbooks and eventually be able to have instant-on functionality and persistent connectivity. Recently at the COmputex 2009 Expo, Freescale announced this concept and said that the smartbooks are cloud-computing-centric and characterized by all-day battery life.

As the smartbook category takes shape, Freescale has teamed up with industrial design programs to demonstrate possible next-generation form factors for smartbook devices. They are commonly powered by processors based on ARM technology, such as Freescale's i.MX515.

In my opinion, this smartbook looks like it will appeal customers with its fancy design. I hope it will be capable to play games like the PSP.

What To Think About Before Buying Netbooks.

Recently the netbook is gaining popularity because of its low price and its feature as a secondary mobile computer useful for light task computing such as browsing, creating documents, playing audio, video and light games. The netbook is energy-efficient and weigh less than 1.5kg. It is very useful for people who are mobile.


Buying a netbook involves many considerations and considering the following factors will be important to get the best value for money.

One of the most important factor is battery life. Most netbooks in general will last for at least 3 hours but it depends to which kind of programs you are running, the graphic processor used and also the main CPU. We could now see that there are various kinds of CPU's but it seems that the Intel Atom is quite dominant in powering most recent popular netbooks. Intel's new N280 CPU that launched around February was reportedly energy efficient compared to its predecessor, the N270. Well, CPU power draw definitely accounts for a significant percentage of a netbook's power consumption, but it is far from the only factor.

Some netbooks are equipped with a 3G broadband modem and an accompanying SIM card that allows you to connect to the web using the same wireless network as mobile phones. This feature will be useful for mobile users who are constantly connected to the internet.

The netbook screen plays an important part. The bigger a netbook’s screen, the larger and heavier it will be. Netbooks with 10 inch screens or smaller weigh 1.3kg or less, while models with 12in screens are heavier. The netbooks with 10 inch screens will have a good resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels, which is large enough for browsing the web and editing documents. To get a higher resolution which makes creating and manipulating documents easier go for a 12 inch screen.

The disadvantage of a netbook lies on the fiddly keyboard. Netbooks with larger screens tend to have more room for a larger keyboard, but even they have a few undersize keys. Otherwisw probably you will get used to the small sized keyboards.

Some netbooks offer support of multitouch geastures, so you can perform actions such as scrolling through windows.

Some of the netbooks have advance features such as touchscreen displays and styluses, which are useful for notetaking and graphics.

Hard disks range in size from 60GB to 250GB. If you only need to store office documents, you can get away with a smaller disk.

Hands On Pegatron ARM Powered Netbook

A prototype netbook has been built by Pegatron (a company which is subsidiary of ASUS). The new netbook developed is using the ARM Cortex A8 chip on its Freescale iMX515 CPU which is found on the Palm Pre smartphone. What is interesting is that the chip is clocked at 1GHz rather than the 600MHz in the Pre. If you notice the clock speed is lower compared to Intel Atom-powered netbooks but the Pegatron netbook's CPU is reported to be capable of playing back 720p HD movies and supporting 3D games.

What to expect of this netbook is the energy efficiency. It has a the two-cell battery that could last up to 8 hours, with a minimum of 4.5 hours. Other features are, the netbook have two USB ports, a VGA output and a memory card reader.


Pricing or release information is yet to be confirmed, even there isn't any certainty whether it will be produced. Netbooknews.com uploaded a hands on video review on Youtube.

Much like your cellphone, the Touch Book is always on, meaning that you can bypass any lengthy boot processes, and since it has no fans or disk drives, it won’t make any noise while operating! Capable of operating in one of two modes (keyboard and touchpad mode, or tablet mode), the 3D interface is easy to use.

Additionally, the Touch Book will include Mozilla’s upcoming mobile browser (codenamed Fennec), which was created specifically to cater to the needs and capabilities of touchscreen devices.

EasyPeasy Installed on Eee Pc 701 4G

Easy Peasy is an Ubuntu based operating system for netbooks. It's optimized for netbooks. It could be easily installed on your netbook. You could get the Operating System by downloading it at geteasypeasy.com and install it to your netbook using a flashdrive.

One of the reason to get a netbook is you can get them for a cheap price without worrying about their performance. Viewing various online stores, you can actually buy netbooks from anywhere between $200 to $500. Athough high-end netbooks that come with higher specs for eye candy features will cost you more, most of us just care about the price especially because the function of netbooks as second computers and for their purpose in light computing tasks.

I suggest that you don’t have to spend $400 or more for a netbook to get decent features on your netbook. There are plenty of netbooks which are under $250 that you give you a good bang for your buck while allowing you to get your work done without suffering any loss in performance. Here are my 10 picks for netbooks under $250.

1. ASUS 8.9" Eee 4GB PC Netbook Computer with Linux. This netbook is priced for $220. It is not recommended for people who prefer Windows XP as the operating system. This netbook is preinstalled with Xandros Linux. It handles light tasks such as browsing and also writing using OpenOffice. It's major disadvantage is its small disk storage capacity. other than that this netbook is sufficient.

2. Sylvania GNET13001 7" Netbook PC. Don't expect the Intel processor on it because its equipped with a 1.2 GHz Via C7-M Processor. It will be a decent netbook because with the price offered you could get a 1 GB RAM and 30 GB Hard Drive. This product has a built in WiFi that is important for internet access.

3. ASUS Eee PC 900 8.9-Inch Netbook is probably a suitable and much better netbook in this price range. It is equipped with an Intel Mobile Processor, 1 GB RAM, 12 GB Solid State Drive, XP Home, 4 Cell Battery. It provides the power of a full-sized laptop in a compact body with a larger 8.9-inch screen. Even with the larger size of the Eee PC 900 when compared to the original Eee PC, the new model weighs just over 2 pounds--perfect for students toting to school or road warriors packing away to Wi-Fi hotspots. And because it uses flash memory instead of a hard drive (with 12 GB of storage), the Eee PC 900 is optimal for weathering rough handling and sharing space in overstuffed bags.

I hope that you could wisely pick your choice and pick the netbook that will be sufficient for your use.
