Whats the difference between this and the 1005p they both have atom N450

hmmm... the new intel atom N450 will mean reduced power consumption BUT im not entirely sure there will be any performance gain compared to the cheaper, more widely used Intel N270 processor :?

See the graph here: techpinas.com/200…tml


Minimal performance gains over the N280.

why dont they use b/g/n cards in these:?

hot for new model.

n450 is far better at video processing isn't it? (i know the performance gains in other areas are pretty minimal)

Our net test speeds only come in at 3 meg with a b/g card but with a b/g/n get the full 8 meg....well near as damn 7 meg, which is best going to get with IP profile of 7150

Same price at Simply ASUS - but you have choice of colours and free delivery...

I'd get this but I bought the 1001HA around a month a go and it is practically the same except it has a N270 processor. Still manage to get around 7-8 hours battery out of it though without Flash (the battery EATER)

Both power-consumption and processing-power are very slightly improved with the new Atom N4/N5-series chips.
Note the words very slightly - it's not enough to care about.

Nope - it comes with a slightly-souped-up version of the old Intel GMA 950, renamed as GMA 3150. It has no HD capabilities whatsoever, and won't play games. Look for a Netbook with the Broadcom decoder installed if you want to play HD or FlashPlayer content.

Why would they bring out an "very slightly improved" CPU after after a16 month gap?....oh , wait they didn't.........

It features hyper-threading and is still manufactured on a 45 nm[40] process. The new system-on-a-chip design uses half the power of the older "Menlow" platform. This reduced overall power consumption and size makes the platform more desirable for use in smartphones and other mobile internet devices.

To reduce costs and size.

The new Atom chips have the graphics-core and memory-controller integrated on-die - they cost less for Intel to manufacture, and take up less space inside your new netbook.

I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do with that information, but thanks for proving my original point.

Here's some more reading material for you.
anandtech.com/sho…9/5
"Across the board, thanks entirely to the integrated memory controller, Pine Trail is roughly 5 - 10% faster than the original Atom platform. The performance gain varies, but on average I’d say 5 - 10% is a reasonable expectation. It’s lower than I expected, but it looks like Atom’s performance is gated in more areas than just memory operations"
Anand later goes into a bit more detail - anandtech.com/sho…925 - explaining exactly why there's almost no performance gain.

Bear in mind that the newer Atom and chipset does draw slightly less power than the old (around 15w less) - but 10+ hours of battery life is already common on Netbooks, so this isn't a big deal.

is this good then?

Acording to Asus the identical non pinetrail does 8hrs and this does 11hrs,
3hrs difference is quite a lot for some people - probably.....
