Gigabyte Q2005 netbook gets Atom N550 love

As much as tablet fans might like you to think the netbook market is dead, the netbook ranks continue to grow as folks want a cheap rig that has a keyboard and standard form. Gigabyte has unveiled a new netbook called the Q2005 that gets dual-core Intel N550 power.

The Q2005 is a standard netbook form factor device so you get no fancy convertible screens here. You do get that N550 CPU that should provide decent power for the machine. The screen is a 10.1-inch unit with a resolution of 1024 x 600. The lack of HD resolution may be a deal killer for some.

Other features include 1GB of DDR3 RAM that can be upgraded to 2GB, 250GB of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0 is optional, and the machine gets a 0.3MP camera. Power can come from a 3-cell battery or an optional 6-cell unit. Gigabyte does pack a good memory card reader inside the rig. The reader is an 8-in-1 unit rather than just reading SD cards.
