A low price mini notebook that realizes long-term driving with less than 20,000 yen appears

Previously at GIGAZINEApproximately 30,000 yen EeePC appearedAlthough it reported, it became clear that a groundbreaking low price mini laptop computer which realized driving for a long time with a price of 20,000 yen or less appeared.

Despite its low price, it carries a 8.9-inch LCD screen as well as a CPU that achieves processing speed that does not impair practicality.

Details are as follows.
Freescale Semiconductor targets the netbook market
Comprehensive solution based on ARM technology designed to enable low-power, gigahertz performance netbooks at sub- $ 200 price points

Work on semiconductors and othersFreescale · SemiconductorAccording to the release, it seems that he developed a platform to realize a $ 200 (about 18,600 yen) mini laptop computer.

It is a CPU called "i.MX515" manufactured in a 65 nm process integrating the ARM Cortex - A8 core, a video output chipset compatible with 2D and 3D graphics built in the CPU, a low cost printed circuit board In addition to realizing long-time driving for 8 hours with very low power consumption, heat sink and fans are unnecessary because it is low heat generation.

Furthermore, since it can load 8.9 inch LCD screen like conventional low price laptop computer and Adobe Flash Lite etc are installed, browsing comfort is not impaired.

By the way, OSUbuntuIn order to reduce power consumption, the CPU is of the type that the number of clocks varies from 600 MHz to 1 GHz according to the usage situation, and the DDR 2 and Mobile DDR 1 memory is supported in the memory.
