"They should have upgraded more ingeniously!"3.0 starson by ProDigit
Pros: battery life
CPU is mediocre
Cons: too large to be carried around like a notepad, 9" is better
low screen resolution
Not a big step up from previous models.
Battery life is only moderate for a netbook, only thank to the 6 cell battery pack.
Not very upgradeable
Summary: Intel purposely holds back growth.
we are at a point where the atom processor should be 2Ghz, 22nm, with turbo boost, and dual DDR3/DDr4 memory channels, and an on-die 600Mhz clocked GPU.
Netbooks need to be 9" models, with a 720p resolution (1280x720) (640x720p 3D).
They need to be more optimized for low power consumption under low activity use (playing back mp3's, browsing).
Need to have a reflective screen, like the one from Toshiba, so that backlight can be eliminated.
That is what we are supposed to be seeing right now, not this device that performs only marginally better than my first gen EEEPC 701!
I would much prefer a lower speed 3cell MLC 60GB SSD over a 500gb slow hd to be the stock form of memory storage.
