Intel We already reported on the fact that updated Intel Atom chips are expected to arrive somewhere in the second half of 2009. With the Atom being Intel's only platform that's actually profitable, it makes sense for the chip maker to focus a lot of effort into improving the platform. Information provided by the usually-reliable DigiTimes points to some serious improvements making their way to Intel's Atom chip. The new chip is codenamed Pineview.

Arent Atom netbooks already available second-hand at lower prices?

Even if the performance is the same as an older laptop, battery life in my Asus 901 is way, way better than I've ever had in a laptop. I doubt you can get better than that at a competitive price, even second hand.
