Following its announcement earlier this month, OCZ Technology has officially launched its Neutrino netbook for those who want maximum customization. Starting at around $269, this 10.1-inch barebones system will surely appeal to a certain group of “do-it-yourself” users, although the use of a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU and 945GSE chipset (rather than the newer N280 and GN40 combo) already makes it seem a little outdated.


The netbook comes equipped with a LED-backlit screen that provides a 1,024x600 resolution, 1.3MP webcam and built-in microphone, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Gigabit Ethernet, VGA out, stereo speakers, a pair of USB ports and a four-cell battery. Users will then be able to squeeze in up to 2GB of DDR2 memory, a 2.5-inch hard drive or solid state drive offering up to 250GB of storage capacity and either Windows XP or Ubuntu Linux. The Neutrino barebones as well as necessary components will be available from OCZ starting in mid-April.
