MSI, ASUS, Acer and Lenovo prepping Atom N450 netbooks for January 11th

MSI's rumored plans to corner the Pine Trail netbook market this month look to have been put on hold, with the company named as one of four firms - the others being ASUS, Acer and Lenovo - set to launch Atom N450 based models on January 11th.  The new timescale apparently complies with Intel's launch schedule, with the N450 set to officially debut on January 10th, ahead of the Atom N470 processor's arrival in March 2010.

ASUS Eee PC 1201T dumps Atom for AMD Congo

ASUS have pushed out another 12.1-inch ultrathin, and this time they've eschewed Intel in favor of some AMD goodness.  Unlike the 1201HA and 1201N, the ASUS Eee PC 1201T uses AMD's 1.6GHz Congo MV40 processor, along with the RS780MN chipset and ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics; that adds up to 1080p Full HD performance, though it doesn't appear from the spec sheets that ASUS have fitted an HDMI port to the 1201T.

The wire has been pretty barren when it comes to word of ASUS' upcoming 10.2-inch convertible touchscreen netbook, the Eee PC T101H.  Last we heard, ASUS had pushed its release back until September "at the earliest" and were watching sales performance of the T91 before finally green-lighting the project; now, according to NetbookNews' sources, the T101H will make its official debut at CES 2010, complete with Intel's next-gen Atom N450 1.66GHz processor.

ASUS plan to unveil their touchscreen Eee PC at CES 2009 in January, with a launch early in the new year, according to Samson Hu, general manager of Eee PC business at the company.  No specific details of what format the touchscreen Eee will take have been released; ASUS could choose to add a touch-sensitive panel to the screen of an existing netbook (similar to the aftermarket mods we've seen) or it could develop a new Eee Slate PC.

ASUS Eee PC 900A: Atom in an older casing

It's not a proper day if there's no new Eee news choking it up, and ASUS are delivering the goods with yet another variation on the netbook theme.  Today it's the turn of the Eee PC 900A, an 8.9-inch screen version of the original Eee PC 900-series only packing Intel's Atom CPU rather than the Celeron-M which that range used to include.

Intel confirm Atom delay until September; ASUS relieved

With all the Atom-powered notebooks on show at Computex, you'd be excused for thinking that Intel's manufacturing shortfall was long past.  Not true, worried out loud Asustek's Jerry Shen; both the new Eee PC 901 and 1000, together with the Eee Box B202, are powered by the 1.6GHz processor.  While denying that Atom availability would seriously impact upcoming Eee shipments, Shen did suggest that, unless Intel ramp up production by October, getting hold of an Eee pre-holiday would be tricky.  Of course, Intel responded by saying that, in fact, fabrication would be up to speed by September.
