Intel Corporation announced today a dozen of new netbooks based on its new, mobile dual-core Intel Atom processors are available in stores today. The netbooks - available now from manufacturers including Acer, ASUS, Fujitsu, Lenovo, LG, Samsung, MSI, and Toshiba - enable new levels of support for applications like game, as well as Adobe Flash technology for access to a number of web pages including online hotel booking systems and multimedia sites such as YouTube and Hulu.
Currently, about eight million netbooks are being shipped per quarter. Intel expects this number to grow as major computer makers add new models.
With the dual-core Intel Atom processor N550, consumers can enjoy Internet access on the go with more responsive experience in the same compact form factor, with DDR3 memory support and similar great battery life as the single-core Intel Atom processor N450. New netbooks based on dual-core Atom chips arrive in stores today and are available at a variety of consumer-friendly price points.
