HP readies dual-core Atom netbook

Mini 5103 inbound

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

HP is preparing a netbook based on Intel's new dual-core Atom chip, the 1.5GHz N550, and has posted a service manual on its website ahead of the as-yet-unannounced machine's release.

The included specs show that, in addition to the N550, the HP Mini 5103 will also come in versions fitted with the 1.66GHz Atom N455 and the 1.83GHz N475.

Broadcom's Crystal HD graphics chip is also an option, available as an alternative to the integrated graphics core in Intel's NM10 chipset. Likewise, a 1366 x 768 display will be offered alongside the customary 1024 x 600 netbook screen. Both panels are 10.1in.

Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11n are the networking facilities that come as standard. Bluetooth and 3G are optional.

There's no word on when the Mini 5103 will debut, or - since the manual is aimed at US users - if it'll make it to this side of the pond. ®
