Gigabyte’s CeBIT booth to get a look at its newly announced T1000 netvertible. Intel inadvertently announced their Pine Trail Atom N470 processor early, a 1.83GHz processor chip designed for netbook devices and today we see the first netbook to offer the new chip.
First T1000 Netbook To Offer The New Chip Atom N470 processor by Gigabyte
T1000 comes powered with a 1.66GHz N450 processor with an optional n470 and sports a 10.1-inch LCD display with 1366×768 pixel resolution that is interchangeable between a netbook setup and tablet setup.
It has 1GB DDR2 RAM, 250GB 2.5-inch SATA HDD, an integrated microphone with two 1.5W speakers and a 1.3 megapixel web cam. For network connections, the T1000 includes full support for wireless 802.11b/g/n connectivity, wired 10/100 Ethernet and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.
There is also 2 USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA/USB combo (no USB 3.0 included), 4 in 1 multiformat card reader, audio in/out and an express card port.
Two versions of the T1000 are being offered and these are the T1000x and the T1000p. Where the units differ is in their battery which additionally affects the overall weight of the device. The T1000x comes with a 4 cell, 4500mAh Li-ion battery and an overall weight of 1.3kg whereas the T1000p has a 6 cell, 7650mAh Li-ion battery that results in a slight weight increase to 1.48kg. Users will need to make the decision of whether better battery life outweighs the reduced portability that comes associated with it.
