Intel hasn't convinced you yet that its upcoming Atom processors will be dirt cheap and pregnant with promise? Well the company has a new definition on the table to see if you'll reconsider. Intel is talking up a new "NetTop" concept of desktop PCs ranging in price from $100 to $299 -- the desktop counterpart to the Eee PC, if you will. Naturally, Intel plans for those desktops to be powered by its own Diamondville processor, but also has other plans like solid state storage, no system fans or CPU socket, optimized power supply unit and "cost optimized OS solutions." The machines will run on Linux or Windows, and Intel projects 60 million of 'em will be sold a year by 2011. Those crazy, cash-addled dreamers.
