Multimedia, AV The sweet smell of competition is lingering in the air. That sweet smell which indicates that somewhere in the vicinity a company is working on actually improving a product so we can all benefit. This time around, it's Adobe, delivering the first Flash 10.2 beta. Prime feature? Complete hardware acceleration of the entire video pipeline - fully cross platform, cross-form factor. Cross-platform! There's a catch, though.

If they ever come out with a decent intel atom netbook with a nvidia ion chipset that fits in my budget this would be good news.

It's nice to see Adobe showing linux users some love though, not complaining by any means...

Keep up the good work Adobe, but please, can you do anything for intel gma video cards to help them run faster under linux. my netbook works great for everything except flash using Ubuntu netbook remix

What's your budget? The 1201N from Asus fits your specs and is $484 from Amazon:

Is that too much?

The GMA 950 is still a very common gpu and in a lot of Core 2 Duo notebooks, he shouldn't have to buy a new computer for smoother Flash.

that's out of my price range. If I ever do get a Ion based netbook it'll have to be under 200 dollars. Honestly my Acer Aspire One ZG5 works great for me for everything but flash, just hoping that Adobe could maybe make their optimizations work for any video card insteads of just specific ones.
