A few days ago Intel announced their new N550 dual-core Atom processor which is said to deliver faster processing, better graphics and be able to handle 720p video. The 45nm Pineview model is said to run at 1,5GHz, support DDR3 memory, have hyperthreading and support 2GB RAM among other things.
All these specs are coming in at a perfect time for the netbook market which, as many see it, is in need of a boost. The N550 is definitely an interesting product that has the entire tech world talking. But the big question on everybody's mind is, "Which netbook will be the first one to feature this new N550 dual-core Atom processor?"
Well, the answer to that is simple, the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM. The Asus 1015PEM has all the functionality and style that one would expect from the company who is considered to be the one who started the netbook revolution. For them this is a brilliant step forward.
The combination of speedy and portable technologies could easily put netbooks back on top. The biggest thing about netbooks gaining dual-core processors is that you can now get all the portability of a netbook with the power of a bulkier laptop, and at a far more reasonable price.
Many people are interested in how much better the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM performs compared to its predecessors. Another interesting thing is how much improvement the N550 will deliver to the netbook market. The good news is that, thanks to Asus, nobody really has to wait long to find out the answers to these questions.
