Samsung wafts 11.6in, Ion-based netbook around
N510 release imminent?
Samsung has been quietly showing off an 11.6in netbook based that uses Nvidia's Ion chipset, we hear, and two European retailers even briefly posted details of the machine before being told not to by the South Korean giant.
The result is a name, a collection of specs, a price and a possible launch date.
The N510 looks something like this
The name is N510, the specs: 1.66GHz Atom N280 processor, 1GB of DDR 2 memory, 160GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. While the N280 seems commonplace on the continent, it's less popular in Blighty, so we suspect it may appear over here with the 1.6GHz N270.
The display has a resolution of 1366 x 768. The battery contains six cells - as do most other Samsung netbooks' power packs.
Pictures of the machine show a machine not unlike the recently released N120.
The price? €462 (£390/$652), but that's without sales tax or VAT. One site said the N510 would be out today. We shall see... ®
