NVIDIA’s Ion platform is pretty snazzy, welding an Atom and a 9400M graphics chip (the same found in Macbooks, fanboys) to handle high def content with ease. Samsung’s N510 is an 11.6-inch netbook built on this platform, making its way to the U.S. next month.
AU: We’ll keep you posted on news of an Australian release date. No word as yet.
According to Lilliputing, the 1366 x 768, HDMI-equipped N510 will make its way to the States in September for an introductory price of $US599. Even for the extra power, that’s more than we want to pay for anything loaded with a puny Atom processor—especially if it’s loaded with but 1GB of RAM as we suspect. [lilliputing and image]
