The N280 runs at 1.67GHz, up from the N270's 1.6GHz, and the machine's 1GB memory will be clocked at 667MHz rather than 533MHz. That's thanks to an improved chipset: Intel's GN40, which also bring HD-capable graphics, though at what cost to battery life remains to be seen.

Other specs are largely Small, Cheap Computer standard: 10in, 1024 x 600 screen; three USB ports; SDHC card slot; VGA port; and 10/100Mb/s Ethernet, plus 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It comes with a 160GB hard drive and a Sony/Apple-style lozenge keyboard.
