The difference is that the reviewed 450 has a wired USB connection, a slightly different design, and lacks some multimedia buttons, whereas the K350 is a wireless keyboard for multimedia oriented consumers.
The reviewed N450 integrates the CPU, the memory controller, and the graphics processor on a single piece of silicon, in order to reduce power consumption. These chips are separated in the previous N270/N280-based netbook platform.
The ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 is an integrated graphics chip that can be found in AMD-based mainstream notebooks, such as select Acer Aspire AS5542, Compaq Presario CQ61z, HP Pavilion dv4 and dv6, HP ProBook 6545b, or Toshiba Satellite L505D, A505D and L555D models.
The HD 4200 supports DirectX 10.1 and has the UVD chip for hardware decoding of high definition video. The GPU is a part of the 2009 AMD Mainstream Platform for laptops, also featuring the AMD AMD Turion II Ultra, AMD Turion II, and AMD Athlon II dual core processors, and a single-core Sempron.
I’ve compared three AMD’s Socket AM2 processors with prices below $50 in the US market. These are the AMD Sempron LE-1250 and LE-1300, clocked at 2.2 and 2.3GHz respectively, and the 2.7GHz AMD Athlon LE-1640. All CPUs are single core units and come in retail packages with coolers included.
The tested 64-bit chips have 512KB of L2 cache and a 45W power consumption. They are built using the 65nm production technology. The Semprons have an 800MHz HyperTransport link, whereas the Athlon LE-1640 uses a 1000Mhz HT. Supported instruction sets include MMX, 3DNow, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, and x86-64. In addition, the 1640 supports virtualization.
The Chieftec Aegis CH-05SL-B-OP is a silver & black ATX mid-tower steel computer case, advertised as an “Extreme Workstation Tower”. The case includes front door, a side panel with a window, three 5.25″ drive bays, six 3.5″ HDD bays, a 3.5″ Floppy drive bay, and seven expansion slots. Mounting of 5.25″ and 3.5″ devices, as well as PCIe/PCI cards, is screwless.
Besides a clock speed increase of only 0.06GHz, the N280 features a faster front side bus. It’s 667MHz, which is up from 533MHz in the N270.
