With Intel’s hot new dual core Atom processor, the Atom N550 receiving its officially announcement a few days ago, we are now starting to see more and more netbooks coming out of the woodwork featuring this chip.
It is now Gigabyte’s time with their new T1005M 10-inch tablet convertible netbook, aka netvertible. The Gigabyte T1005M seems to be identical to their previous T1000P netbook, but it has swapped out its previous processor for the latest dual core N550.
Update: The Gigabyte T1005M is now available from Amazon for $599.
The current T1000P is listed on Amazon for $699 (down from $899), and the new Gigabyte T1005M has been spotted in Australia for $900 AUD which works out at $795 US directly converted. We have yet to hear the official US price, but this looks about right, but hopefully it will drop a little upon its release.
Being a netvertiable it of course features a touchscreen display (multi touch capacitive). The display is 10.1-inches with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. It has 2GB of DDR3 RAM, Intel GMA 3150 graphics, a 320GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet, HSDPA 3G, 1 x USB 3.0,2 x USB 2.0 / eSATA, VGA output, audio in and out, and runs Windows 7 Home Premium.
It also comes with a beefy 6-cell 41Wh, 7650mAh battery so the battery life should be very respectable.
