Samsung N510 in September

Conflicting with an earlier rumor, Samsung's N510 netbook will arrive in the US in September. A high-end crossover netbook, it should center on its use of NVIDIA's Ion platform to provide relatively high-speed 3D and HD decoding without affecting power use compared to Intel's graphics. The N510 is on the large side of netbooks, at 11.6 inches, but can therefore sport a relatively high resolution of 1366x768.

There will be an HDMI output to take advantage of the graphics processing capabilities. There should also be typical netbook specs, however, including an Atom processor, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive.

Pricing is also said to be $599, which, while less than the originally estimated $800, is still significantly higher than the usual starting point for netbooks. [via Liliputing]
