Toshiba NB510 makes pre-CES appearance, stands up for the netbook cause

CES 2012 is expected to be reigned by the generation of Ultrabooks, but the netbooks of the world refuse to quit without a fight -- at least that's what Toshiba hopes. According to Notebook Italia, the Japanese company is expected to introduce the NB510 mini-machine in Las Vegas next week, splitting the numerical difference between the NB500 and NB520 from a year ago. The rig's said to be sporting Intel's Cedar Trail Atom processors, accompanied by one gig of DDR3 RAM, a WSVGA (1,024 x 600) display and it'll be running on Windows 7 Starter Edition. Price tag on the lappy might be €340 (around $400 in US cash) for the entry-level variant, but we'll hold our horses on that until we see an official unveiling in the upcoming days.
