We’re starting to see more netbooks running the newer AMD Athlon II Neo processors that can be considered in the ULV category. The Gateway EC13N01i is one of them, sporting a dual-core 1.3GHz CPU and a healthy 2MB cache.
11.6″ display @ 1366×768 pixel resolution
AMD Athlon II Neo dual-core K325 @ 1.3GHz
ATI Radeon HD 4225 w/ 384MB VRAM
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
5-in-1 card reader
3 x USB 2.0 ports
Windows 7 Home Basic
The K325 has the same TDP (12 watts) as the K125 of the Aspire One 721 I reviewed earlier. I’m expecting the K325 to perform better while consuming the same amount of juice. Good thing Gateway put a 6-cell 5800mAh battery in it.
The unit is selling for Php27,900 in stores. It will be interesting to pit this against the Acer Timeline 1810tz running a dual-core Pentium 1.3GHz processor.
