Hardware, Embedded Systems Netbooks, netbooks, netbooks, netbooks, netbooks. That's basicaly Computex in a nutshell. If you've seen one Atom-based netbook, you've seen them all, but luckily for us, NVIDIA is about to shake the world of netbooks up with a new Tegra chipset, the Tegra 650. Full high definition playback, battery life from outer space, and a processor that is always-on. Well, that's what NVIDIA promises, anyway. Twelve Tegra 650 devices were announced, with the first devices shipping before the end of the year - at USD 199 or less.

These CE devices will have apps like App Store style apps through microsofts app store front. So no customers wont be able to install their favorite software from disc, but their will be a decent amount of titles (most around 1st quarter of 2010).

There will be apps though, and it will feel desktop like. your normal user, casual user, will be satisfied. The battery life is one of the huge selling points on these guys (aside from their graphics capabilities).
