Cheapest Netbooks with Intel Atom N450 Pineview Chip, PineTrail Platform - 2010 Prices in the Philippines

Lester H. from Katipunan, Quezon City emailed TP this question last night:
"TechPinas, I'm planning buy a new netbook come semestral break. I want it relatively powerful with [long battery life -- but the things is,] my budget is a bit tight. I think a netbook running on [Intel Atom N450 should fit my needs really well. TP, what are the cheapest netbooks with Intel Pineview chip out in the Philippines today?] Thanks!"

Hi Lester!

Here are some sub-20k netbooks running on Intel Atom Pine Trail platform with N450 chip (learn more about PineTrail and Pineview via the link):

There you go, Lester. I hope you find this helpful. Also, if you're planning to buy any of these, I suggest you visit a shop and try them out yourself first. Don't buy a netbook based on specs alone; touch the machine, check the build quality, turn it on, see how fast it runs the operating system and the softwares you need, do a side-by-side comparison with other netbooks. That's the best way to do it.

I'll try to create a separate post for other netbooks running on Pine Trail that cost a little more than Php 20,000. Please stay tuned for that.
