FUD Zilla reports Intel will allow netbook makers to equip machines with the Atom N470 processor with up to 2GB of memory.
The N470-based netbook as a part of Pine Trail-M two chip platform will come with N470 CPU that has an integrated graphics and NM10 southbridge that has the rest of the chipset. It will come with Condor Peak Wlan and with 1 to 2GB of DDR2 memory.

The storage guidance is to use 20 to 32GB SSD drive or a 160GB mechanical hard drive. The operating system of a choice is Moblin Linux, something that Intel tries to push on its end, but naturally manufacturers will be able to use XP Home Edition or Windows 7 Starter. The screen size will vary from 7 to 10.2-inch and battery will end up with 4 cells of less. The price of these machines will vary on configurations from $299 to $349 but we are confident that you will see even more expensive versions.
