Samsung N510 product page now live

September 14, 2009 at 11:31 pm

Nvidia IONThe Samsung N510 is already on sale in a few places including Italy, Germany and Hong Kong. It is expected to go on sale in the UK very shortly, with a number of UK e-tailers opening up pre-orders but no one actually shipping right now.

To gear up for the launch, Samsung has unveiled the official product page for the N510 netbook, which includes an official spec list. The interesting part is that it does look like the UK will get slightly beefier specs compared to mainland Europe. The N510 UK SKU will get the N280 Atom (Europe gets N270) and we believe that the 6-cell battery will be rated at 5900mAH, compared to 5200mAh for Europe.

Also, now that the N510 is already out in Europe, some users have been busy putting the ION-powered netbook through its paces. One such person is Fungus-T, who has ran a number of video tests (including gaming & HD video) to show off what it can do. Check out a selection of videos after the break.

    I’m disappointed that it’s not coming with Windows 7, as it’s just around the corner now.

    According to the release date I found. I did see Windows 7 mentioned in one of their press releases though.

    They probably aim to sell (last straws) as many XP or Vista Home Premium’s as possible and then give you an option to upgrade to Win 7, albeit at a cost.

    Who needs windows when Ubuntu has clearly surpassed it? Currently running Ubuntu 9.04 on another ION based unit and it performs really well – with all compiz/3D enabled.

    Because Linux distros don’t support hardware acceleration for 1080p/720p which is what many people want Ion for -.-

    Finally got one – and quickly installed Ubuntu 9.10 on it as windows was not really utilizing the platform. Everything runs smoothly and HW video decoding seems to be supported (extra package).

    This is one nasty Ubuntu machine 🙂
