ASUS 10.2-inch N10 netbook priced at $849

Ah, fiddlesticks! Here we were hoping that somehow ASUS could pack a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and NVIDIA's GeForce 9300M GS into a netbook for under half a grand, but deep down, we knew it wasn't to be. Instead, this (very) well-spec'd N10 is ringing up at $849 over at J&R's website, but that also buys you a 10.2-inch LCD, 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, a fingerprint reader, Windows Vista Business and a built-in webcam. Wondering when the charge will actually hit your card? "Coming Soon" is all we've got.
