Time to be giddy.
The first dual-core Atom 550 netbook could be hitting in Singapore next week. Engadget reports that there will be two different versions. The 1015 PEM will pack a 1.5 GHz dual core CPU. It will support up to 2 GB of DDR3 and start at around $440.
The 1015PM will be the same basic netbook, but with an Ion 2 processor. Both machines will have 10" displays and the PN is expected to hit the U.S. in September.
