First Netbook with Intel Atom 330 CPU and NVIDIA Ion GPU

Japan is the first country ever to get a netbook that is powered by the Intel Atom 330 processor and a NVIDIA Ion GPU (graphics processing unit). This netbook is from DosPara and is called the Prime Note Cresion NA.

The Cresion has a 12.1″ screen with a resolution of 1366×768, 2 GB of RAM, and a 320 GB hard drive. Other tech specs for this netbook include an integrated optical drive, a memory card reader, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, and HDMI out.

The relatively larger screen size may be nonstandard, but is likely intended to make good use of the high performance graphics unit. The Atom processor in this netbook is paired with a NVIDIA Ion platform, which adds a 9400M GPU for high-definition video playback.

This high-performing netbook doesn’t come at a cheap price. It boasts a price tag of $AU771 (or roughly $630 US dollars), not including the price of the operating system.
