While I don't profess to know as much about this major Apple product line revision as I did in the previous instance where NVIDIA invaded the entire mobile product line, what I DO know this time might be just as interesting. After checking with quite a few sources I can say without a doubt that the upcoming Apple tablet device being announced on Wednesday will not have any version of the NVIDIA Tegra product powering it.

The new Eee PC 1101HA sports an 11.6" screen at 1366×768 and is powered by an Atom Z520 @ 1.33GHz, 1GB of DDR2 memory and a 160GB hard drive, relatively common for smaller sized mobiles. Interestingly, it supports overclocking; Tech Spot had it running at 1.74GHz stably. You still shouldn't expect huge results from an Atom processor but including overclocking in a Seashell, or any other notebook for that matter, is going to garner you some fans.

The Asus UL30A is another example of Intel's CULV mobile PC; not quite a full laptop but more than a netbook. The screen is 13.3", the keyboard is 'chiclet' style, with well spaced out keys emerging from underneath the metallic body of the CULV and the trackpad is a series of holes punched into the body below the keyboard. Inside you will find a a Core 2 Duo at 1.3 GHz, Intel's X4500MHD IGP, 4 GB of DDR3 and an installation of the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium.

Over the past few weeks, the buzz about NVIDIA's ION 2 and it's coexistence with Intel's Pinetrail CPUs has been the subject of much speculation. As we near the 1/2 way of the first quarter of 2010, more details of NVIDIA's discrete graphics chip are being revealed.

The ASUS K42F is a 14" 1366x768 notebook with an Intel Core i5 540M powering it and comes with some nice features, like a Blu-Ray drive. Legit Reviews contrasts it with an HP Pavilion DV4-1555dx
which is powered by a C2D P8700. Between the HyperThreading, Turbo Mode and the on die Intel HD graphics, they saw a 40-50% performance increase from the older HP system. Also worth noting is the battery life; you might expect the older and slower machine to come out on top but again it is left behind the new Arrandale machine.

During a pre-show event last night, we spent a few minutes with Bill Henry of NVIDIA who showed us a prototype tablet computer based on the Tegra platform. You know about Tegra from our previous discussions on it and likely from all the hype surrounding the Microsoft Zune HD.

There is something a little unusual about Lenovo's new X100e laptop; inside you will find a single core Athlon Neo MV40 CPU, not an Intel Atom. Even though it retains the smaller size of the X series, it still has a 11.6" 1366 x 768 display, along with 4GB of RAM, a Realtek 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, and a 5200RPM HDD of 160GB to 320GB. The 6 cell battery does interfere with the style of the notebook so you will have to decide between keeping the sleek lines or longer battery life.
