Press release, August 24; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 24 August 2010]

Intel has announced that a dozen new netbooks based on its new mobile dual-core Atom processors are available in stores today. The netbooks, available now and through the end of the year from manufacturers including Acer, Asustek Computer, Fujitsu, Lenovo, LG, Samsung, Micro-Star International (MSI), and Toshiba, enable new levels of support for applications like games, as well as Adobe Flash technology for access to a number of Web pages.
