Panasonic has announced a new line-up of “Let’s Go” notebooks and amongst them is a netbook “Let’s Note”, sporting the new Intel Core i7 processor. The netbook in question boasts of a 1.20GHz Intel Core i7-650UM vPro processor with a 10.4-inch (1024 x 768) display. Intel’s Atom chip is the standard stuff that is showing around all over as the driving CPU of the 10.1 inches netbooks these days like the Dell Mini and HP Mini, so to have a netbook with Core i7 is surely an amazing thing for this form factor.
It looks like the rumors that were leaked earlier regarding a Google branded Chrome OS netbook were indeed true. Google is planning to release atleast two sub $300 netbooks that will be powered by Chrome OS. These machines will sport 10.1 inches screen and will be powered by NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform. They’ll also feature 64 GB SSD, 2GB RAM, webcam, USB ports, GPS, WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity to go with it. Multitouch screens with GPS are also planned for high end models.
