OCZ Shows Off Its Neutrino Netbook at CeBIT

Paul Lilly

Another day means another netbook on the horizon, this one from former memory-maker-gone-everything-maker OCZ. And another netbook means another Atom processor on the spec sheet, but OCZ adds a twist.

OCZ says its new Neutrino netbook will part of its DIY program, meaning power users can select from a list of validated components (in this case, probably RAM, HDD or SSD, and WiFi) and install it themselves. OCZ's DIY line so far includes a handful of 15-inch and 17-inch gaming notebooks, but this will be the first time that we know of where end-users can assemble their own netbook.

For those who'd rather not dink around inside such tight quarters, OCZ also plans to offer a pre-configured Neutrino with a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 LCD display. Other specs include an Intel Atom 1.6GHz CPU, 945GSE chipset, up to 2GB of RAM, optional 250GB OCZ SSD, two USB 2.0 ports, WiFi, 13.MP webcam, and either Ubuntu or Windows XP.

Look for the new models to start shipping in 2-3 months and "priced competitively."
