    A little late for april foolsday?
    Perhaps they still had a few million Atom processors for sale!
    There hasn't been a single newsbreaking revolution in the Atom market ever it took over the Celeron M processor.
    The N2650 is the processor we've been all waiting for since the Celeron M processor (since all steps between only score a few 'points' higher in benchmarks than their older brothers.
    And those points are relative. I'm sure a software flooded Atom N550 is slower than an N260 on some benchmarks, so all the Atom processors really aren't that different from each other!

    Just get the N2650 out today, so we can buy them!
    Emerging markets me arse.. Was trying to get the Lenovo version of this StudyBook, only available through government programs and what not. How come it's not accessible to general public even at higher prices?
