HP netbook with new Atom chip available for pre-order

HP's Mini 210 will come with Atom N455, which could provide faster system performance

A Hewlett-Packard netbook with Intel's upcoming Atom N455 processor is available for pre-order on a German Web site ahead of the chip's official launch.

Amazon.de is listing a Hewlett-Packard Mini 210 netbook with Intel's N455 chip running at 1.66GHz.

The N455 is the likely successor to the N450, which was introduced in December and also runs at 1.66GHz. The N455 is expected to support DDR3 memory, an upgrade over the DDR2 memory in most netbooks today.

The DDR3 processors should allow data to be exchanged faster between the memory and CPU, translating to better overall system performance.

The netbook is priced at €349 (US$464). It comes with Windows 7 Starter edition, 1GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive. The Amazon listing was spotted by the German Web site nDevil.

Intel CEO Paul Otellini has said the company is committed to improving the performance of the Atom processor. He said Intel would release a dual-core version of the chip this quarter, though it hasn't confirmed yet whether it will be for netbooks or desktops.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
