Samsung netbookSamsung still has not confirmed rumours of the N510 11.6-inch netbook, despite a number of retailer listings. Now the French-based retailer, Pixmania, has the ION-based netbook listed on its site for €499 and a release date of 21st August.

There’s no information apart from that, although the listing does confirm the specifications that we’ve already seen. It will have a high-resolution (1366 x 768) display powered by a 1.66GHz N280 Atom, 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. It will come with the Nvidia 9400M GPU, HDMI-out, Wi-Fi (Draft-N), a 1.3MP webcam and 6-cell battery. If the release date is just a few weeks away, expect an official announcement from the company soon.

    good to hear! I have been puzzled by the time it has taken such systems to come out,… ION has been talked about for months and months, but such a long time to be released.

    Now the important part, I assume lots of similar models will soon come out and a price of around 500 USD will soon be reached? Also, surely this will be the prefect hackbook platform, usable as a mac mini, but also great for on the road? Any reason why hackintosh will not work well given the specs?

    USD 700 + is quite frankly too much. The whole point, I think, to a certain extent is also “$” if one needs a netbook. Would like to know what extra’s we get from the ION platform though.
