Intel's new Atom chips appear in HP, Fujitsu netbooks

HP and Fujitsu are updating their netbooks with new DDR3-capable Atom chips

Hewlett-Packard and Fujitsu are updating existing netbook models with new Atom processors that were announced last week by Intel at the Computex trade show.

The new Atom chips, the N455 and N475, run at the same speeds as their predecessors but include integrated DDR3-capable memory controllers, allowing data to be exchanged faster between the memory and CPU and boosting overall system performance.

HP is updating its Mini 210 netbook with the DDR3-capable chips, according to a brochure on its Web site.

The netbook has a 10.1-inch screen and 320GB of storage. It will come with up to 1GB of memory for the Windows XP version and 2GB with Windows 7. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and the netbook can also be configured to include 3G mobile broadband, GPS and a video accelerator.

The laptop will offer up to nine-and-a-half hours of battery life, according to the brochure. HP did not return calls about availability or pricing. It is still offering netbooks with the older Atom processors, starting at US$279.99.

Fujitsu in Japan announced the MH380-1A laptop, which will include the Atom N475 processor, according to a page translated through Google Translate. The laptop will come with WiMax mobile broadband and include a 10.1-inch screen, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It will run the Windows 7 OS. The PC will start shipping on June 17. Pricing was not immediately available.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
