Netbook improvements slow thanks to Microsoft

Netbooks are underpowered. There is no denying that fact. But is it really the manufacturer’s fault? Not exactly. Because of Microsoft‘s Ultra Low Cost PC (ulcpc) licensing program, manufacturers have to stick to Microsoft’s regulations. If they don’t, then they can’t purchase xp at a discount ($26-32), which is the only way to get xp since they no longer sell it. These rules are why you can’t buy a netbook with more that 1gb of ram. Thanks Microsoft.

Nvidia has announced a new platform designed to deliver high end graphics for netbooks with their new Nvidia Ion Platform. The Nvidia Ion Platform will be able to deliver HD video and high end 3D gaming to your netbook. The platform combines Intel’s Atom processor with a Nvidia GeForce 9400m GPU, and it is likely to be released in the first half of 2009.

The new Nvidia Ion platform will be powerful enough to run Windows Vista and Windows 7 on netbooks, and will generate less heat than the current Atom system while offering the same battery life. This new platform is likely to only add an extra $50 to netbook prices.
