Intel Corporation announced today that a dozen of new netbooks based on its new mobile dual-core Intel® Atom™ processors are available in stores today. The netbooks – available now and through the end of the year from manufacturers including Acer, ASUS, Fujitsu, Lenovo, LG, Samsung, MSI, and Toshiba – enable new levels of support for applications like games, as well as Adobe Flash* technology for access to a number of Web pages including online hotel booking systems and multimedia sites such as YouTube* and Hulu*. People need to pay attention because Intel is slowly, shall we say taking over the world. Intel does way more than just make chips these days, watch out for them because they are in position to capitalize on almost any and every market that needs chips. I don’t even think we have seen nearly what they will eventually be able to accomplish in the mobile department, stay tuned.
With the dual-core Intel® Atom™ processor N550, consumers can enjoy Internet access on the go with a more responsive experience in the same compact form factor, DDR3 memory support and similar great battery life as the single-core Intel® Atom™ processor N450.
New netbooks based on dual-core Intel Atom chips arrive in stores today and are available at a variety of consumer-friendly price points.
