The model will come with an unspecified dual-core 1.3GHz processor, up to 4GB RAM and a 320GB HDD. System power in idle is quoted as 10.61W suggesting it will be an AMD processor as it’s higher than typical CULV power consumption.

Pierre gives us a comprehensive look at the U210 and also compares it to a 10-inch Wind U100. He also managed to fit the U100 battery into the U210 with success. It does have a glossy lid, but is not as much of a fingerprint magnet as other models. Another positive note is that the bottom panel easily allows you to upgrade components.
