OCZ outs Neutrino netbook
OCZ has officially announced its 10.1-inch Neutrino netbook, first shown during CeBIT at the beginning of March. Part of the company's Do-It-Yourself (DIY) line-up, the computer can be upgraded by users without voiding the warranty. The Neutrino weighs just under 2.9lbs, and by default sports a 1024x600, LED-backlit screen, though it can be upgraded to a 1600x1200 display. Processing power comes from a 1.6GHz Atom CPU.
Up to 2GB of RAM is supported, and users can choose from hard drives sized up to 250GB, or OCZ solid-state drives ranging in capacity from 30GB to 250GB. Standard fare includes a Wi-Fi module and a four-cell 2200mAh battery; video conferencing is handled through a built-in 1.3-megapixel webcam and microphone, while audio output is produced from 1.5W speakers.
Connections include an Ethernet port, VGA output, two USB 2.0 ports and a headphone jack. Users can order the Neutrino with Windows XP or gOS/Ubuntu Linux operating systems. No prices or release dates have been released, but the netbook is expected to become available soon.
