The netboon is *** $209 USD ***, with free shipping!

Could this be the first of the ARM variant netbooks ?

................. cpu........................

Burst is introduced to the mark as portable mobile multimedia products,
based on an innovative 32-bit embedded CPU technology, by Ingenic
Semiconductor Co., Ltd. It redefines the 32-bit embedded microprocessor
core performance, multimedia capabilities, power consumption and size
standards. Various performance of XBurst indicators much far ahead of the
existing industrial sector 32 CPU cores. Under the same process in CPU
industry, XBurst enhance its computing performance of more than 80%,
multimedia capacity by 100% or more, while its power saves 70%, and size
saves 50%.   

XBurst includes the following aspects:

· A set of industry-standard RISC instruction set.

Support for Linux, WinCE, a large number of third-party software and
development tools.  

· A multimedia acceleration for the SIMD instruction set.

SIMD instructions can effectively accelerate the speed of video codec

· An innovative micro-architecture design: XBurst.

XBurst pipeline design uses some innovative elements, which make the
processor in high-speed to launch of the implementation of directives under
low power consumption.


XBurst offers such powerful supports of four aspects in mobile multimedia
portable devices as followings:

· High performance:

XBurst is designed under the 0.18-micron process. It can stably provide a
360 MHz frequency, and it is much more than other industries often at 200
MHz core within. Under the same industry process, XBurst can performance of
others more than 80%.    
· Ultra-low power:

Power of XBurst is 25-30% of similar products, which means the power
consumption can reduce 70%.
· Ultra-small size:

Area of XBurst is 50% of the similar products in industry, which saves 50%
of the silicon area.

TomTop sells 7" Xburst Netbooks for USD209

TomTop Wholesale Center, which sells a whole range of China-made products
from digital cameras to mobile phones to laptops, etc. is selling to
Non-Wintel netbooks for only USD209 each, with free shipping. Despite its
corporate name, the price is applicable even for single quantities.

The two units have very similar specs -

If we wish to reduce our ignorance, there are people we will
indeed listen to.  Trolls are not among those people, as trolls, more or
less by definition, *promote* ignorance.
