    But where are they? There are virtually no netbooks available and even then they are a bit steep!

    I was hoping they would retail at the same price point as an atom.

    A lot of those sales seem to be in the US and outside Europe. The thing is that AMD have been selling every one they can make. On top of this they are already going to bring out a refresh. The C60,E300 and E450 will be out soon:

    The E450 has already been spotted at Computex IIRC.

    10.1" Toshiba @ £300 - in the middle of 10.1" Atom N450 pricing with a slightly better CPU and much better graphics.

    11.6" MSI @ £345 - same price as higher end dual-core Atom netbooks but with bigger screen, better CPU and GPU, more memory etc.

    13.3" MSI @ £440 - try finding another 13" notebook at that price with 4GB RAM and a 500GB hard drive: looks like a very nice ultra portable...

    And that's just what Scan has in stock in notebook / netbooks: they have also probably got the Acer Iconia W500 which is a C50 tablet...

    First one is pre-order. Okay there are some available.

    I'm talking the £200 area though. The graphics are the selling point but with them on die they should be cheaper. N450s start at 200 (I know there is no way I would spend more). With the huge market netbooks hold they should be picking up on brand recognition.

    They are still invisible on the high street. Of course I can only speak about the UK market.

    This AMD C50 based laptop is around £247:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004TBMLF...SIN=B004TBMLF8

    The C50 is a dual core whereas the the N450 is a single core. On top of this the Intel GMA3150 cannot compare in processing power to the AMD HD6250. The HD6250is far better at decoding videos and AFAIK also supports flash acceleration too.

    the 522 is 1280x720 rather than the usual 10" 1024x600 - shame its only the c50 and not the E350 or it would be my perfect netbook

    Bulldozer being delayed because their fabs are busy makes even more sense considering this.
