Samsung to launch Nvidia Ion-based N510 netbook

By on
Samsung already broke the typical netbook mold back in February when it announced the Nano-powered NC20. Now in a similar fashion, the company is joining Lenovo in bringing mainstream PC graphics to the segment, with the introduction of its Ion-based N510. Shown briefly during an Nvidia presentation, the new netbook will sport an 11.6-inch (1366 x 768) display, and Intelís latest Atom N280 processor under the hood clocked at 1.66GHz.

Besides housing an Nvidia 9400M graphics chip, the N510 should have relatively standard netbook components. These include a 160GB hard disk drive, 1GB of memory, Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, Bluetooth, a webcam, multi-format memory card reader, 6-cell Li-Ion battery and Windows XP Home. The N510 should arrive as soon as next month, though unfortunately the rumored 570Ä (~$800) price tag puts it firmly into full-notebook territory. (Image source: Legit Reviews)
