Samsung ND10 Netbook comes OS free

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on August 13th, 2009

Samsung ND10 Netbook comes OS freeHere’s something you don’t see everyday. We like it. Samsung has launched the ND10 netbook and is allowing you to purchase it OS free. By being free and unshackled of any OS, it allows the buyer to choose what ever OS they want to install, whether it’s XP, Android or Linux.

The ND10 is pretty similar to the NC10 in specs and sports a 10.2 inch screen, an Intel Atom N270 processor and over seven hours of battery life. They are pretty much the same, with you saving $50 by installing your own OS.

What’s not to love? It looks just like the classic controller, is soft to the touch and keeps your netbook nice and cozy. It’s made of felt, so don’t be afraid to caress and gently stroke it my dork friend.

Sony to release Vaio P Mark 2 in October

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on July 9th, 2009

vaiop-sbAccording to TechRadar there will be a “range” of Vaio Ps coming later this year. The original line just got a minor spec boost that makes the Vaio P as fast as normal netbooks. At this time we don’t have details on what the new machines will have as far as specs.

The news was out when a Sony rep informed TechRadar at a recent launch event for its new Vaio NW laptop and Vaio W netbook that, while overall sales of the ultraportable P Series hadn’t gone through the roof, they were still selling a significant amount to certain niche markets.

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2009

vaiop-sbLooks like the Sony VAIO P is learning some new tricks. These new processor and drive upgrades will have the Tiny PC taring up benchmarks at twice the speed of the original. Most of that improved speed comes from the SSD drive, but the Atom Z550 sure doesn’t hurt.

Over in Japan they are getting a WiMAX version, which doesn’t mean crap to us since most of the US doesn’t have WiMax coverage. As usual, Japan is always beating us.

Posted in Netbook by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2009

Lenovo S12 gets official, first Netbook with Nvidia IonWith the IdeaPad S12, Lenovo is first to offer a netbook based on Nvidia’s Ion chipset. So far, we like what we see. The 12-inch netbook will give you the whole HD, game-playing thing for about $500. Nividia’s Ion is basically Intel’s Atom processor combined with the Nvidia 9400m graphics unit.

The resulting performance offers smooth 1080p video, accelerated h.264 playback, Blu-ray playback and moderate gaming capabilities. When it’s in a netbook, you get a midrange, 12-inch netbook with a multimedia slant.
