Swordfish Net 102 Dual netbook features twin Atom CPUs

Swordfish Net 102 Dual netbookNow this is a first. A company called Haleron has announced a new netbook on the market that features two Atom CPUs. The Swordfish Net 102 Dual netbook somehow manages to squeeze in two 1.6Ghz N270 Atom processors into its chassis (note we’re not talking about dual-core processors here).

The netbook has a 10.2-inch (1024 x 600) display, 2GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. I can’t think how long the 3-cell battery would last considering it’s powering two CPUs. Other features include a 1.3MP webcam and Windows XP.

It even has “Dual Bluetooth” to enable tethering to a smartphone as well as 3G access. Certainly sounds like an unusual offering, but it does come at a reasonable price-point of $450. I still am trying to work out whether we should actually expect improved performance from this bizarre setup…

    The company from Colombia, haleron, has a net dual core netbook with the Atom 330. They announced it this morning. Just thought it may be noteworthy. I had bought their dual processor unit. Works as stated, runs a little warm. But able to use my photoshop and do Flash projucts at the same time while out of the office…

Got something to say?
