The Averatec netbook comes with the Intel Atom N450 processor, which is a single core chip running at 1.66 GHz and using 512 KB of L2 cache.   The Atom N450 integrates the display, graphics and memory controllers with the CPU for speedy performance and higher efficiency. This is a 64-bit processor built on a 45 nm die which does support HyperThreading.

The 10.1″ display has a resolution of 1024 x 600 in a 16:9 aspect ratio. An Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 powers the screen which uses response-boosting dynamic video memory up to 128MB.

The netbook comes with 1 GB of DDR2  memory running at 800 MHz and is expandable to 2 GB. The hard drive is a 160 GB Serial ATA (SATA) model running at 5400 RPM.  It’s not overly large, but should be big enough for what a netbook is normally used for. There is no optical (CD/DVD) drive on the system, but one can be connected using the USB ports.

The integrated 0.3 megapixel webcam and microphone make video chatting simple.  For transferring pictures from your memory cards the netbook comes with a 3-in-1 media reader which supports Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity and MultiMediaCard formats.

The operating system is Microsoft Windows 7 Starter edition.  Other software includes Samsung Recovery Solution III, Samsung Magic Doctor, Samsung Update Plus, Easy Display Manager, Easy Battery Manager, Easy Network Manager, Easy SpeedUp Manager, Easy Resolution Manager, Battery Life Extender, Adobe Acrobat Reader 8, Cyberlink YouCam, and McAfee Internet Security 9.0 (free 60-day trial).
