After witnessing countless press releases for single-core netbooks over the past couple of years, the dual-core revolution is finally here, and it's Asus that's leading the charge. According to Asus, its newly introduced Eee PC 1015PEM netbook is the first netbook in the U.S. to feature Intel's two-cored Atom N550 processor, though it certainly... Read more...
We seem to be heading into an era where netbooks aren't being positioned as the bargain bin machines that they once were. We can't recall the last time we saw a $199 or $249 netbook arrive.  The vast majority coming our way now are priced at around $399 at least, and Asus' Eee PC 1215N fits the mold here. With a $499 MSRP, this isn't... Read more...
Is Intel's Pinetrail platform really all its cracked up to be? We recently took an in-depth look at the 1.8GHz processor / platform, but it's a different thing to take a look at the same thing in a shipping product that's available today to consumers. We have been longing for faster Atom processors, and particularly in recent months, we felt... Read more...
With the announcement of a new dual-core processor that is designed to be used in tablet PCs, netbooks, and smartphones, Samsung is giving us a glimpse at what may be coming in 2011. The new processor, codenamed Orion, contains a pair of 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 cores. This processor will be able to handle 1080p video playback and recording at 30... Read more...
It's that time again. The time of year where students and parents frantically hit e-tailers with overnight shipping deals in order to get that all-important back-to-school technology into a dorm room or backpack before classes begins. It's back-to-school season, and whether you've started classes recently or are awaiting (dreading?) that first... Read more...

New laptops anyone? If you're Samsung, you're definitely saying yes. The company has announced two new lines of sleek mobile computers today, the SF series of ultraportables and the NF series of standard-sized notebooks. The SF series consists of the Samsung SF310, SF410, SF510, with screen sizes being 13.3", 14" and 15" in order. These units... Read more...
HP is definitely on a roll. First comes a slew of new notebooks and a Wireless Adapter, and now the company is issuing a pair of new netbooks. Way to round things off, guys! The newly redesigned Mini 210 is a sleeker, slimmer and more powerful Mini than what you're used to, equipped with built-in Wi-Fi, a webcam, microphone, near-full-size... Read more...
Intel just recently announced that its dual-core Atom N550 processor will be shipping in no less than 12 netbooks now and in the coming weeks, so we'll cut Hewlett Packard (HP) some slack for being slow to update its main product pages. But while the company's HP Mini 5103 netbook landing still shows old specs, the product's Energy Star profile... Read more...
There is little argument that most netbook owners wouldn't take a little bit more performance headroom in their machine if it was available. The reality is, though Intel has mopped the floor with netbook design-wins that employ its ultra low-power Atom processor, performance on Atom-based machines has always felt...

Another day, another netbook. This time, it's a new one from Dell, and it's another in the Inspiron Mini 10 lineup. Dell's Mini 10 range has been around for nearly as long as 10" netbooks have been around, and the new Mini 1018 borrows styling cues from the curvy Inspiron R notebook line and includes mostly just the...

It's the size of a netbook, but it packs a mightier punch than we're used to seeing. It's Dell's newest ultraportable, the Inspiron M101z. Dell calls this new machine an "ultrathin laptop with long battery life," and if you've been looking for netbook portability with more power than usual, this looks to fit the bill. It weighs less than 4lbs.... Read more...
Acer's been busy showing off its new netbook at the Taipei Computer Application Show, and there's good reason for attendees to get excited. The Aspire One AOD255, as it's been dubbed, comes configured with both Google's Android platform and Microsoft's Windows XP OS. Holy dual-booting netbook, Batman! On the hardware front, the AOD255 is a... Read more...
Around seven months ago, we were able to review one of the more advanced netbooks out at the time, the Eee PC 1201N. It was one of the first netbooks to integrate a graphics chip known as the NVIDIA Ion.  The Eee PC 1201PN retains many of the same features and nearly the exact same form factor as the original, but it utilizes the next-generation...

It's been said for years by industry veterans: a lot can happen in a very short window of time when you're dealing with technology. As soon as one piece of cutting-edge tech makes it to market, the next big thing is just days, weeks or months away. In the netbook realm, that hasn't applied as much. Netbooks haven't evolved nearly as quickly... Read more...
If the Wind U230, and its 12.1" display, was just a little too big for your netbook needs, help is soon on the way. MSI has today announced their newest notebook, the U230 Light. It's an interesting one, mostly because it resembles the original in so many ways, but the most obvious difference is the smaller (just barely) 11.6" LCD. The new... Read more...
There was a point in the past few years where there was a new Eee PC being announced every month or so. At a time, we easily found over 20 active Eee PC netbook models, with small tweaks to each meaning that your perfect netbook was almost certainly available from Asus. But as the netbook category has evolved and the hype has died down somewhat,... Read more...
Google and Apple aren't exactly Microsoft and Apple, but it's getting that way. These days, Google and Apple are looking like more and more like rivals, mostly because the two are grasping for the same market share in a break-out market. That said, Microsoft has the primary PC market locked down, with over 90% of the... Read more...
Dell's Studio line has always been about both form and function, and now an even greater emphasis is being placed on the aesthetic design. In a joint collaboration with Threadless, Dell is sprucing up its Studio laptop line with "11 inspired designs," each one created and submitted by members of the Threadless community. "The Threadless community... Read more...
Samsung has teamed up with Verizon Wireless to offer the Samsung N150 netbook through the nation's largest carrier. The netbook offers built-in connectivity to Verizon Wireless' 3G network as well as global connectivity thanks to a pre-installed SIM card that provides access in more than 200 countries. The Samsung N150 is powered by an Intel... Read more...
Is it a netbook? Or is it an ultraportable? That is certainly up for debate, but Gateway's LT32 is nonetheless an attractive portable computer. The design itself is certainly one of the nicest around, and the 11.6" display is one of the more unique available today. It offers a larger-than-usual screen compared to most 10" netbooks, yet it's... Read more...
Another week, another MSI netbook. Not that we're complaining, but it's certainly becoming more and more difficult to find one netbook that fits your needs completely without having another nearby tempting you with one or two different features. In the race to saturate the market further, MSI has just issued the Wind U160DX, a thin and light... Read more...
