Just very recently, Toshiba launched two new 10-inch netbooks, the NB500 and NB520, with the NB520 sporting stereo Harman Kardon speakers, a dual core Atom N550 processor and sleep-and-charge USB. The NB500 is pretty much the same but lacks all three features and comes with a single core processor. Now, there’s another model in the NB5xx series, announced over in Germany – the NB550D which sports an AMD Fusion ‘Brazos’ APU. As long as you’re fine with owning either a Lime green, orange or brown model then read on.

The particular APU for this netbook is the C-50, the same as on the recently leaked Acer Aspire One D522 which clocks in at 1GHz, dual core. There’s the same AMD Radeon HD 6250M graphics. Like the NB520, this model keeps the palm rest Harman Kardon speakers and sleep-and-charge USB. There’s also an HDMI port. This model’s battery is rated to last about 9.5 hours on a 6-cell battery. Other specs – a 10.1″ 1024 x 600 display, 250GB HDD, 1GB DDR3 RAM, 3x USB 2.0, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, VGA webcam and Windows 7 Starter.
