Simple question.

Are any Duel Core Atom Netbooks are the market yet?

I got the impression the Acer Aspire One is a Duel Core but that seems....wrong.

none in netbooks. They're all single core, and some have hyper threading.

here is the problem with duel cores. if you have them side by side, one always ends up killing the other.

Nope.

The Intel Atom processors designated for Netbooks (N270 & N280) are single core.

There are Intel Atom processors designated for Nettops (230 & 330) that are dual core (330), however I don't think anyone has taken a Nettop processor and stuck it in a Netbook....unless Clevo decided to make a monster Netbook :D

Flytrap nailed this one .. the dual-core Atom 330 CPUs are not being put into netbooks. One of the main reasons is that they run considerably hotter than the single-core Atoms and require more cooling than netbooks can contain.

Having said that, rumour indicates that dual-core netbooks will arrive in the second half of '09
