Acer, Asus, Lenovo, and MSI tip Cedar Trail netbooks

Filed under
Hardware

In the wake of Intel's announcement late last week of its dual-core "Cedar Trail" N2600 and N2800 Atom processors (pictured), a quartet of Cedar Trail netbooks have popped up on the web, with several models available for pre-sale. The formal launches will await next week's CES show in Las Vegas.

Acer Aspire One D270

Back in 2009, Acer announced the first Atom-powered netbook with its Aspire One AOD250-1613. The company has stuck with the format through thick and thin -- and lately the market has been very thin indeed. Recent models include an Aspire One 722 netbook announced last April, featuring a dual-core AMD C-50 Fusion processor.

Since Intel's Cedar Trail announcement, Notebook Italia discovered a number of European retailers whose price lists include Acer's Aspire One D270 (or AO270).

Review: Kdenlive, the Linux video editor I want to use

There once was a time when video editing on Linux was an elusive beast. Well, that's not exactly true. Professional-level video editing on Linux has been solid and mature for many years now, with the likes of Lightworks, Cinelerra and Blender. But the "hobbyist" video editor market just wasn't very well-served. There were video editors out there… but they were often buggy and lacking in critical features. Read more

Atomic Mode-Setting/Display Support Progresses In Linux 3.20

Going along with many DRM graphics driver improvements for Linux 3.20 is the seemingly never-ending work on atomic mode-setting. Atomic mode-setting/display support has been talked about for years but is finally nearing a reality within the mainline Linux kernel with drivers like the Tegra DRM driver adding initial support. With Linux 3.20 there's the actual Linux DRM Atomic IOCTL and along with other changes means that Linux user-space can start accessing the atomic support, albeit it's hidden for now behind the experimental drm-atomic=1 flag.

Industrial box-PC takes Linux-on-Haswell to extremes

The Acnodes “FES8670″ is a rugged industrial box-PC that runs Linux on a 4th Gen Core CPU, and offers four GbE ports and numerous storage and display ports. So far, we’ve still only seen one company (Congatec) announce products based on Intel’s new 5th Generation Core (“Broadwell”) processors, although we expect many more to break cover at Embedded World next month. Yet, there’s still plenty of juice left in the 4th Gen Haswell Core chips, which drive Acnodes’s powerhouse FES8670. Earlier Acnodes industrial PCs have included the Atom D2550-based FES2215.
