Intel Not only has Intel teamed up TSMC to produce Atom CPUs, the company has also unveiled four Atom chips that will go into devices such as entertainment systems for cars, videoconferencing devices, robots and interactive kiosks. "The Z500-series Atom processors are integrated chips the size of a penny that draw little power and do not require fans to operate. The chips draw 2.5 watts of power or less and run at speeds of between 1.10GHz and 1.6GHz. They offer integrated 2D and 3D graphics and will be manufactured using Intel's existing 45-nanometer process."

You're correct; I saw the Nvidia logo and assumed that Nvidia logo plus Atom equaled the Ion platform. I should have made sure before firing off a post ;)


No worries. I just researched the hell out of the netbook, ultraportable market recently.

I ended up with a ASUS eeepc 1000HE. ION was just announced and no one makes an ION based netbook. I was surprised that I missed the Sony. I looked at the sony P, TT and Z but neither had a ION and were too expensive otherwise. Decided the 1000HE was the best bang for the buck.


The Sony one is really expensive, then again, their products I find are over priced and offer nothing over Dell, Apple, HP or any of the other brands; in many cases they're inferior to what cheaper brands offer.

Its too bad the ASUS eee pc 1000HE isn't in NZ yet or the 901 is incredibly difficult to get a hold of - and forget about trying to get a Linux equipped Netbook in New Zealand, its almost impossible to find a retail chain willing to sell it.
