Averatec’s HS-105 Netbook Has Decent Specs, Lacks Pine Trail

averatc-hs-105You know that Pine Trail platform that’s supposed to assist OEMs in creating thinner, more battery-efficient netbooks? Well, it looks like Averatec didn’t get the heads up when it went into designing the HS-105, a mini-notebook that instantly looks dated thanks to Intel’s new hardware. To be fair, the HS-105 appears to be fairly decent with its 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) LCD display, 160GB (or 250GB) hard drive, 2GB of RAM, 945GSE GPU, and 1.3-megapixel webcam, but the 1.6-GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU may relegate it to the kiddie table. Netbooks already have a difficult time differentiating themselves from one another, and outdated CPUs  don’t exactly help the cause. Hat tip: Engadget via Akihabaranews
