Matthew Dillon at GottaBeMobile has spent the last week using the 10.2″ Intel Atom-powered Asus N10 as his primary notebook/computer and has posted about it.
Even though it’s got a 10.2″ display, it’s at the high-end of the netbook/ultraportable market, with an HDMI port, and NVIDIA’s GeForce 9300GS graphics chipset (note this is not the NVIDIA Ion platform).
The model used was the N10Jc-A1 (1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, 6-cell battery). It actually has two graphics chips – a built-in Intel GMA 950 and a dedicated NVIDIA 9300M GS (256MB RAM). You can switch to the built-in/integrated Intel graphics to save on battery life.
The Express Gate was tested thoroughly, it’s Asus’ “Instant On” OS that allows you to jump into a few standard Linux-based applications very quickly, rather than booting all of the way up into Windows.
