In addition to a system by Asus, Intel's forthcoming DDR3-compatible Atom processors will appear in product refreshes from HP and Toshiba. The new chips are supposedly due this summer, but few, if any official details are currently available about their features, price or availability. Nonetheless, machines with the processors are appearing online worldwide.

A German Amazon listing reveals a new version of HP's Mini 210, which carries the 1.6GHz Atom N455, GMA 3150 graphics, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, a 10.1-inch display, Windows 7 Starter and is priced at 349 (around $464).


Similarly, a new netbook briefly appeared on Toshiba's French website before the company pulled it. SlashGear reports that the NB305-10F is mostly identical to existing models such as the NB305, except it has an Atom N455 with 1GB of DDR3 1066MHz RAM. It too will cost around 350.
