- 10 inch screen netbook that used to have 7 to 8 hour battery life could now go for 10 hours with 1.66Ghz N450 Atom ( with 63Wh 6-cell battery )
- performance is about the same with a bit better graphics power ( GMA 3150 vs GMA 945 on N280 )
- fanless design easier
- smaller size could enable it to be used also on bigger UMPCs ( still 7W TDP compared to 4.3W on 1.33Ghz menlow system )
