Default Dual Core Atom 550 - 02-15-2011, 01:15 AM

I bought a 1012 with hi-def screen, Broadcom Crystal Acc, supposedly Dual Core Atom 550 1.5 but System says Atom 450 1.66. Came from the outlet, I guess I have to call Dell and see what they will do. The config in the email Dell sent me said Atom N450 at the top but also listed the Atom N550 towards the bottom of the listing. Anybody else run into this scenario, or shed some light on it.

It's a mistake. All 1012 netbooks have N450 CPUs.

Default Atom Dual Core - 02-15-2011, 01:58 AM

I noticed the post down below after I posted my comments, I guess a Dual Core Atom in the 1012 is just a mirage. Dell must have had complaints about this, it was in the outlet specs of the 1012 I bought also in the config Dell sent me as an acknowlegement of my order. Dell should get this corrected. I really bought it because I thought I was getting the dual core, I guess I'll keep it for a while. Probably sell it in a month or two, like every other laptop I've had. At least I finally got an Ice Blue model.
