New netbook platform allows 4GB RAM, 12.1 inch screens

Written by Fuad Abazovic


Cedar Trail to get up to $399
One of the key points of netbooks was to be cheap and Intel made sure that they stays within the 10-inch format for the longest time. Since tablets are now the next hot thing, Intel had to loosen some of the netbook restrictions and even today you can get a bunch of 12-inch Atom based netbook.

Until Q4 2011 netbook will be limited to 2GB of memory but with the introduction of Cedar Trail – M atom, new netbooks will be able to get even 4GB of DDR3 1066 memory. This will apply to machines with the more expensive Atom N2800 dual cores, while versions with N2600 will still be limited to 2GB DDR3 800 and not more.

Display size can be anywhere from 7 to 12.1 inches and the battery is 4 to 6 cell. When it comes to hard drive size, Intel recommends 32GB SSDs or HDDs up to 250GB. The choice of Operating systems including Windows 7 Starter/ Home basic, MeeGo or Chome OS, whenever this one gets available.

The suggested price for these top notch netbooks is between $329 and $399 for the fastest, fully speced one and as we said before, they are scheduled to appear in Q4 2011 and live for the best part of 2012.

Horse, barn door.

Go buy an AMD Brazos E350 with an 11.2 or 12.1 inch screen and 4GB RAM. CPU as good as best Atom, graphics vastly better.

Intel still thinks it can control the netbook form factor? :-x

And you get a 7200rpm 320GB, 3-4GB DDR3 1333 superior cpu and way superior gpu(HD6310) with things like the HP DM1z with AMD Fusion Zacate E-350.

Good points. Also, E350 (I'm using a Sapphire Pure Fusion E350) can display video at 1920x1080 using Windows Media Player or XINE on Linux - DVD ripped to VOB, AVI, MKV, etc. Atom can't touch that!

That HP you mention is on my shopping list :lol:
