HDDs up to 250GB and running at 5,400rpm are supported, while SSDs between 30GB and 250GB can be selected. There’s also an optional 4-in-1 card reader. As standard you get a 1.3-megapixel webcam, WiFi, PCI-Express slot, two USB 2.0 ports and a VGA output capable of driving external displays up to 1600 x 1200 resolution.
There’s also a 4-cell 2,200mAh battery. The OCZ Neutrino DIY netbook should be available in mid-April, priced at $269.
