"Asus announced a netbook that not only includes Intel's
dual-core Atom N550, but also offers USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0. The
Eee PC 1015PEM provides up to 13 hours of battery life, running
either Windows 7 Starter Edition or the Linux-based "Express Gate"
operating environment, the company says.
"The dual-core N550 is the latest in Intel's Pine Trail series
of Atoms (also known as "Pineview" when their companion I/O
controllers are taken into account). It was first tipped in May by
Fudzilla writer Fuad Abazovic, but not formally announced until
"According to Intel, the 45nm N550 has a 1.5GHz clock speed, 1MB
of second-level cache, and an 8.5 Watt TDP. (The latter puts it
usefully ahead of one dual-core rival, AMD's Athlon II Neo K325,
which has featured in netbooks such as Dell's Inspiron M101z, and
is said to have a 12-Watt TDP.)"
