Intel Atom N470 1.83GHz Pine Trail chip tipped for Q1 2010

The Intel Atom N450 release date controversy continues, and this time there's a second processor that's apparently being brought along for the ride.  Despite Intel's protestations to the contrary, the 1.66GHz N450 - the replacement for the N270 chip currently found in most netbooks - is still on track for a launch in Q1 2010, where it will apparently be accompanied with a 1.83GHz Atom N470.

Intel cuts netbook Atom Z-series supply claim insiders

Intel cuts netbook Atom Z-series supply claim insiders

If there's one thing the past few days have shown us, it's that speculation about processor plans can get confusing - witness Intel's supposed Pine Trail delay and subsequent denials - but that certainly won't stop the rumors from coming.  Latest leaks from "industry sources" suggests that Intel has told its customers that no more Atom Z processor orders for netbook devices will be accepted, which if true would mean that products such as the Sony VAIO P and ASUS Eee PC T91 would have to find different core components.

Strong Atom sales only good news for Intel Q2 2009 finances

Stronger than expected sales of Atom processors have seen Intel post Q2 2009 revenues of $8.0bn, up 12-percent on the previous quarter, though not enough to avoid recording a net income loss of $1.0bn.  Atom CPUs such as the N270, a common sight in netbooks and budget ultraportables, defied the trend for falling processor ASPs (average selling prices) by climbing 65-percent sequentially, and bolstering the company coffers by $362m alone.

Windows 7 may run well on an Intel Atom N270/N280 based netbook, but according to the latest rumors manufacturers of the budget ultraportables may not be offering users access to the "Upgrade to Windows 7" program.  A combination of price and low demand is being blamed for the decision, which if followed through would mean that buyers of Windows XP netbooks in the run-up to Windows 7's launch would not be eligible to a free upgrade once the OS arrives on October 22nd.

With the tablet torrent at CES 2011 we'll admit to having forgotten about bModo's 12G tablet, announced in October last year, but the 11.6-inch Windows 7 slate has now shown up for a full review. AllTouchTablet picked up the $849.99 slate - which runs a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 single-core CPU with 2GB of RAM and Broadcom's CrystalHD video accelerator - and found the Windows experience to be pretty solid, with media playback impressing.

ASUS slashing netbook prices as tablets take market; MSI dropping out completely?

The market obsession with tablets has left netbook manufacturers facing significant price cuts and even abandoning the segment altogether, according to channel sources. DigiTimes claims that ASUS has slashed the retail cost of its latest Atom N450 and dual-core N550 netbooks after attempts to position them based on style and specifications fell short, while MSI is tipped to be "phased out of the market" altogether.

Google Cr-48 Chrome OS notebook review

Google's first Chrome OS notebook, the Cr-48, has landed on the SlashGear test bench, and to say it's an interesting machine would be an understatement. The stealth-black 12.1-inch ultraportable is, like the color-scheme suggests, intended to fall into the background and let the Chrome OS platform take center-stage.
