Mobile Computer: Hands-on with the Asus N10 gaming netbook

Mobile Computer writes: "Today we have the base model in the N-Series – the N10. This uses an Intel Atom N270 processor rather than a Core 2 Duo, which means it's really a netbook rather than a laptop. However, the design is very much along the lines of Asus' other (and much more expensive) ultra-portables and like the N20, it's rather stylish.

More impressive is its specification, particularly the graphics chip. In addition to the same so-so Intel 945 graphics found on other netbooks, the N10 also has a discrete nVidia GeForce 9300M graphics chipset – enabled with the flick of a switch (and a reboot). The result? The N10 is the first netbook we've seen that's capable of playing 3D games at reasonable resolutions and frame rates. More info and a video of the N10 in action after the cut."

As you can see in the video, the Asus N10 gaming netbook, with its NVIDIA GeForce 9300M, has the capability of playing Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. You'll have to drop some settings like anti-aliasing, shadows, and dynamic lighting to get it playable, though.
