haleron swordfish net 20

Remember Haleron? They’re the company that surprised and kind of horrified the world a few weeks ago with the announcement of the Swordfish Net102 netbook that sports two separate Intel Atom N270 processors. Not a dual core CPU — two separate CPUs sucking up your power and most likely not talking to one another properly to actually help improve performance.

But it looks like Haleron also has a slightly more sane-looking netbook called the Swordfish Net 20 that swaps the usual Intel Atom N270/N280 CPU for a dual core Atom 330 processor. This chip is usually found in desktops since it consumes more power than the N2xx series processors. But it has a pretty strong track record of playing well with Windows and Linux.

The Swordfish Net 20 includes 2GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive (or an optional 250GB HDD), a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel LCD, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, 3 USB ports, VGA, Ethernet, a 1.3MP webcam, and a 5-in-1 card reader. It has a 6 cell battery and features an unlocked 3G modem. The laptop sells for $499.

Haleron also makes several lower cost netbooks with single core Intel Atom N270 processors.

  1. Why don’t they just jump on the Ultra Sparc 8-core/8-hyper-threads per core chip?
    (Yes, you read that correctly, 64 process threads == one chip.)
    They could even give away a backpack to carry the battery in. 😉
