Netbooks have been shoved aside by tablets, but Intel is carrying on with its forthcoming Cedar Trail platform and new Atom processors, even if their launch has been delayed by graphics driver issues. The company can at least be encouraged by the first benchmarks for the new platform, which have just been revealed by VR-Zone.

Dell showed its forthcoming Inspiron Duo Tablet at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF 2010) but it would be nice if it called it the Dell Flip, or at least the Dell Transformer. It’s a convertible -- it works either as a netbook PC or as an entertainment tablet -- but takes a different approach to swivelling the screen, as show in the video below.
The obvious first choice in loading Linux on my new Samsung netbook is the Ubuntu Netbook Edition. This should be particularly well-suited, because UNE was originally developed specifically for Intel Atom based netbook, and although it has been improved over the past couple of releases so that it works on others (such as my HP 2133 Mini-Note), I believe that it still works "best" on Atom-based systems.
