neutrino-ion

OCZ’s Neutrino netbook is designed to be easily upgraded. The current model ships with an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 802.11b/g/ WiFi, 2 USB ports, and a 4 cell battery. But you select whatever hard drive, operating system, card reader, or RAM you want. One thing that’s difficult to add to a netbook like this, though, is a better graphics card. Now you don’t have to, because OCZ will soon release a version based on the NVIDIA ION platform.

Instead of an Intel Atom N270 CPU with integrated graphics, the new version will ship with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom 230 CPU (the kind usually used in desktops) and an NVIDIA graphics card (probably a GeForce 9400M GPU, which is what’s showing up in most ION based systems these days.

OCZ is also showing a nettop based on the NVIDIA ION platform, with support for up to 4GB of RAM, Windows Vista x64, a 120GB solid state disk, and an Intel Atom 230 CPU.

  1. “OCZ is also showing a nettop based on the NVIDIA ION platform, with support for up to 4GB of RAM, Windows Vista x64, a 120GB solid state disk, and an Intel Atom 230 CPU.”

    Windows Vista x64? So Intel’s finally delivering 64bit Atom CPUs?

  2. If the price is right (200 cdn) then I’m trading up and gutting my 1000ha.

    1. The MSRP on the old one was around $270 US Dollars (which I think is high for a gutted netbook). Hopefully this will be no higher. But I’m not sure you’re going to get your $200 wish…

  3. I wonder how much of an impact the desktop atom processor will have on battery life. If I remember, these things didn’t have great battery life to start with…
