The Mini 210 and Mini 110 now ship with the 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 processor standard and a 1.83GHz Intel Atom N475 CPU option available for $25 more."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//lpt/auto/1278094142.usr1.png" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>As Notebooks.com points out, these new Atom chips pull 6.5 watts under load instead of 5.5 watts, so it's not entirely clear what advantages these new chips bring - the inclusion of DDR3 support seems pointless from a performance perspective on a small netbook. Although given that the primary power draw on a netbook or notebook continues to be the screen, that extra 1 watt of power won't amount to much. Still, it's a curious trend...</p>

XP??? My 210-1010NR came with Windows 7 Starter. That has to be a mistake. And I really think 6-cell batteries should be standard on netbooks now. It's a crying shame I only get 3 hours or so on my 3-cell battery for something so small.
