Intel Atom N2600 

Released December, 2011
  • 1.6 GHz
  • Dual core
5.7 Out of 10

At $299 is where you'll likely find features like WiDi as well as potentially fanless designs.

In The News From around the web

Intel still sees the netbook segment as a profitable one (for itself) through 2012, although I'm fully expecting the line between netbook and convertible tablet to blur after the launch of Windows 8.
Atom has been at the heart of nearly all netbooks since the segment's inception.
