OCZ formally launches DIY netbook

— 11:45 AM on March 31, 2009

Following a quiet appearance at CeBit earlier this month, OCZ has formally announced its Neutrino "do-it-yourself" netbook. The system is pretty much what you'd expect: a 10" netbook with an Atom processor, chipset, and various other essentials, but with no memory or storage built in.

According to the official product page, the Neutrino touts a 10" 1024x600 display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, a 945GSE chipset, integrated 802.11g Wi-Fi, a PCI Express Mini Card slot, a flash card reader, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, and a removable four-cell battery.

Users are free to add up to 2GB of DDR2 memory and their choice of 2.5" storage—either mechanical (5,400 RPM) or solid-state. The Neutrino doesn't seem to come with a bundled operating system, either, so buyers will have to dig up a Windows license or install a netbook-friendly Linux distribution. OCZ recommends Ubuntu or gOS.
