Asus today took the cover off the new N10 10.2" screen Intel Atom powered notebook. Despite its small size and Atom processor, Asus really wants you to know this is not a netbook, but indeed a notebook. Which explains the lack of Eee PC in the naming. The N10 has a full sized keyboard and even switchable Nvidia dedicated graphics to separate it from the netbooks flooding the market of late.
ASUS silently announced a new group of laptops this weekend, reminding consumers that ASUS makes full-featured notebooks in addition to their popular Eee PC netbooks. The all new F6V, F8Vr, B50A, G50V, and G71V come in sizes ranging from 13 inches to 17 inches and have something to offer everyone from serious students to hardcore gamers.
Now that the MSI Wind has finally started to trickle out to consumers, we were finally able to get our hands on one of these for review. The Wind is another mini notebook in a field originally started by the ASUS Eee PC, but with one primary catch: It is priced well under the equivalent Eee PC. Now having a better price doesn't always mean you are going to win in any given market, but the MSI really outdid themselves and created a great mini notebook. Read on to see just how much ASUS should fear the MSI Wind.
It seems Asus has finally caved on the higher priced EEE PC Lineup, reducing the cost of the older 16GB Linux equipped EEE 900 to $399, and the Windows XP version for $449. While these aren't exactly Intel Atom units at reasonable prices, it is nice to see the price coming down. Currently the $399 Linux version is being offered only in white, with the $449 Windows XP model being offered in black.
