Samsung 11.6-inch N510 netbook on the way?


Looks like Samsung’s getting into the 11.6-inch netbook game with the upcoming N510. An 11.6-inch screen means a 1366×768 resolution, which in turn means that the machine ought to be able to play HD content, which in turn (in turn) means it’s going to need some extra oomph. And it’ll get just that by using the NVIDIA Ion platform.

Preliminary specs include an Intel Atom N280 CPU, NVIDIA 9400M Ion chipset, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, 11.6-inch screen at 1366×768, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/Ethernet, webcam, card reader, six-cell battery, and Windows XP.

The N510 is apparently still a ways out, not shipping until October. Pricing is rumored to fall around 570 Euro, which is about $800. That’s not to say that it’ll cost $800 here — it may be far less. If I had to guess, I’d think it’d be priced closer to $600 or so at most.
