With 2010 just around the corner, we’re going to start seeing a lot of netbooks with Intel Atom N450 and chips based on the new Pine Trail platform. It looks like one of the first could be a new model from lenovo which will feature a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N450 processor and your usual netbook specs including a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel screen. 2GB of RAM, 250GB hard drive, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
The FCC has published some documents related to the new machine including a couple of images. It looks like the mini-laptop will feature the standard Lenovo keyboard layout with the Fn key to the left of the Ctrl key. And unless I’m missing something, the touchpad doesn’t appear to have left and right buttons. Could they be integrated into the touchpad like those on the Dell Inspiron Mini 10v?
Lenovo’s been keeping pretty busy on the mini-laptop front lately. Last week Qualcomm announced that Lenovo would manufacture one of the first smartbooks with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a 3G modem for connecting to AT&T’s wireless network.
You can find a picture of the back of the netbook after the break.
At least they got the Delete key in the upper right corner, but they’ve managed to do that in other netbooks as well.
The FCC people provided us with a little more data by not wiping off their fingerprints. (It has a very glossy wrist rest area).
