Pioneer Australia offering an 11.6 inch laptop called the DreamBook Lite U11a which looks like it will be available with a discrete graphics option in the future. Right now, the only version of this laptop available for purchase comes with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor and Intel GMA 3150 intergrated graphics. But on the product page, there’s mention of two additional options:

  • 1.83GHz Intel Atom N470 CPU
  • Discrete graphic N11x

I’ve seen the N470 option mentioned before, although I’m not aware of any computers sold with this chip today. But the N11x graphics option is a new one. Sascha at Netbook infers that N11x could be a code-word for NVIDIA’s next-generation ION 2 discrete graphics chip. And that seems likely, given that I haven’t really seen any other graphics card makers talking about discrete graphics solutions for Intel Atom-based systems.

The DreamBook Lite U11a has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 2.5″ hard drive, 78-key keyboard, 3 USB ports, VGA and HDMI output, a flash card reader, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, and a 1.3MP webcam. There are also optional Bluetooth and 3G wireless modules.
