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.
Michael Arrington of TechCrunch is reporting on an interesting news regarding a Google branded netbook, which could launch late next year. This rumored netbook will of coarse run on top of Chrome OS with mobility features like support for 3G, and will be sold directly to consumers under the Google brand.
