Default Hands-On With Intel's Canoe Lake Reference Design Platform

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='' target='_blank'></a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Intel Unveiled their new &lsquo;Canoe Lake' platform for netbooks which allows devices to measure in at 14mm thick and be able to play 720p. We have already done our first hands on video, but we got to play around with it again and this time it was turned on. We got to see the windows rating, we can't tell you the number, but we think you'll be pleased. What you will get to see is the cores and how they perform when opening a few different tasks. A closer look at the Canoe Lake specifications Intel Atom N550, 2GB RAM, 120GB HDD and Windows 7 Ultimate. We are guessing a 44Whr battery right now."</em></p><p><object width="600" height="360" data=";feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"><param name="src" value=";feature=player_embedded&amp;ap=%26fmt=18" /></object></p><p>Intel's Canoe Lake platform is a significant step forward for netbooks: a true dual-core design (not just hyperthreading like we've seen with current netbooks), and some impressive design integration that allows them to build a reference design that's quite thin. I really like the cut away at the bottom of the screen - hopefully that hump there is a sizable battery. This is exactly the kind of netbook I'd go for - quick all you OEMs, someone build it!</p>
