Intel hasn’t officially announced any details regarding its 1.83GHz N470 Pineview Atom processor, however at least one netbook is now on sale sporting the new CPU. The Lenovo Ideapad S10-3t convertible tablet is on sale in the US (with N470 Atom) for $649 and is shipping in 9 business days. It comes with a 10-inch multitouch display.
This puts it at $100 more than the N450 Atom-based S10-3t. However the more expensive SKU does get you Windows 7 Home Premium, 2GB RAM and a 250GB HDD as standard. The cheaper version comes with W7 Starter, 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD. This could mean other netbooks sporting the faster Pineview processor are likely to be available soon.
