Pioneer DreamBook Lite Netbook Launched

There doesn’t seem to be a week pass where a new netbook is announced, especially with the likes of ASUS launching new Eee PC’s every week it seems. Pioneer are now launching their DreamBook Lite which has a 12.1 inch screen and runs either a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor or a slightly faster Intel Atom N470 running at 1.83GHz.

The 12.1 inch screen is LED which we should see benefit from that in terms of a clearer image. For connectivity it has Wireless that can connect up to 802.11b/g/n networks as well as a bunch of ports on the side including USB 2.0 and a wired LAN port.

The DreamBook Lite comes with a 4 cell battery although if you go for the optional 6 cell battery the netbook can achieve about 10 hours of usage between charges.

Pioneer are letting the DreamBook Lite ship with a variety of operating systems which include Ubuntu 9.10, Windows XP, Windows Vista and of course, Windows 7.

Back to graphics, it seems that there’s options there too with the choice of an Intel GMA chip, or an NVIDIA ION2 GT218M with memory up to 512MB. Back to the 12.1 inch LED backlit screen, we also see it is a 16:9 aspect ratio running a HD 1366 x 768 resolution.

The netbook can support up to 2GB of DDR2 and comes with a 2.5 inch SATA drive (unknown capacity) for storing files.

Although it’s “another netbook” it actually seems like it’s got something going for it. It will be interesting to see how it sells when launching, we guess in the next few months. Prices and exact launch details are not known yet.
