It looks like those sold on the ASUS N10's
good looks but not on its netbook-style size or processor now have yet another model to consider from the company, which has expanded its overflowing laptop offerings even further with its new N20A model. This one ups things to a slightly more spacious 12.1-inch WXGA display, which is actually described as "glare-type" (points for honesty, ASUS), and it gets a boost in the performance department from your choice of four different Core 2 Duo processors, though it seems you will have to make do with integrated Intel GMA X4500HD graphics instead of the N10's GeForce 9300M chipset. Otherwise, you can expect up to 4GB of RAM, a max 320GB hard drive, and a DVD burner, plus the usual built-in webcam, memory card reader, and a generous array of ports (including HDMI and eSATA connectors). No official word on a price just yet, but at least one retailer already has a Core 2 Duo T5800-based model available for $999.
