Will AMD Neo be actually on Netbooks?

The AMD Neo platform was built to provide a relatively cheap and low power processor and GPU setup that would compete in the same level or probably offer better performance than Intel’s Atom platform. Currently there aren't any netbooks reported with Neo Processor but only in the notebook category (HP Pavilion dv2).

AMD Neo platform is known for its higher capacity in video processing, but the real truth is for day to day tasks like web browsing, most users won’t notice the difference between an Atom powered PC and one with the Neo chipset, but talking about battery life, many Atom powered netbooks last for 5 hours or more on a charge, and the Neo based platform reportedly gives up after just about 2.5 hours.

The battery life is probably why there aren’t any big name laptops powered by AMD’s Neo platform right now.
