    "The DX11 GPU should make light work of outputting high-def media on the netbook's 10.1in 1,280x720 display"

    Is it really a 1280x720 display, or is it a 720p display from which we may infer that its resolutions is in fact 1366x768?

    Some c-50 tests put it close to the dual core N550 Atom in cpu synthetics (it's a mile ahead in graphics as you might have guessed). Remember though that in single core loads Brazos will handily beat atom due to it's OoO architecture.

    AMD also says the C-50 can loop 3dmark06 for 6 1/2 hours non stop, but I lost that link.

    My FireFox bookmarks are becoming too big, but I had to save this page...

    Crazytom, I agree with you about the price.

    Jedibeeftrix, I hope this isn't that strange resolution, either! 1366 is 683 x 2, IE not a multiple of 16. Bit weird...

    I think the reasoning goes:
    • Not going below 768 "lines" is useful for older programs that need that resolution.
    • 768 / 9 x 16 is 1365.3 (1dp), or 1366 rounded up.


    Even so, why not just make it 1280 * 800 for a 16:10 ratio instead?

    Whilst 16:9 films unfortunately get a few black lines, you do get that bit of extra scrolling height in your browser. I'd happily "sacrifice" the black bars for more FireFox.

    (Same also goes for 24" monitors, manufacturers!!) :-|
