Dual Core Intel Atom N550 Netbooks now ready for Shipping
Personally, I am totally uninterested in netbooks anymore thanks to the Apple iPad and many other upcoming tablets we keep hearing about. But, for people who are still interested in these machines, good news is that Intel is all ready with netbooks which will ship with dual-core Intel Atom N550 processors.
Obviously it will be more efficient and responsive than the single-core variant of the Atom, so expect a faster performance on many applications. It is set to operate at about 1.5GHz and your netbooks will now be fully capable of running 720p videos.
Few of the companies who would launch these netbooks include, Acer, Samsung, Lenovo, HP, etc. However, no information is out on the pricing or specific availability but we expect to know more on Monday.
That is all we have on these new chips, we are not much interested but are you?
