Archos is planning to launch an updated version of the Archos 13 laptop. And as you’d expect from the name, the notebook sports a 13.3 inch display, which pretty much rules out anyone confusing it for a netbook — even though it has an Intel Atom processor. But here’s the unusual thing: It will use an Intel Atom D510 Pine Trail CPU. That’s Intel’s latest dual core, desktop version of its Atom processor with integrated GMA 3150 graphics.

Either this means that the rumor about Intel launching a dual core Atom chip aimed specifically at notebooks was wrong… or it’s true and someone at Archos didn’t get the memo or just didn’t feel like waiting.

The new Archos A13PS will also reportedly run Windows 7 Home Premium… and that’s about all we know for now. The laptop should be available in April.

  1. Much like women, if you call a bit of tech ‘classy’ you often mean tawdry and of poor quality.

  2. Can’t wait to see the performance/power consumption stats on this thing. Maybe someone will make a netbook with it, preferably with ION2 🙂
