Sub-$400 Sandy Bridge Notebooks Hit the Market

Lookout netbooksآ… have some stiff competition in the sub-$400 market these days. Sandy Bridge processors are showing up in cut rate notebooks, like HP’s Pavilion and Toshiba’s Satellite, both priced well under the $400 mark. With prices this low, netbooks are struggling to keep up with the higher end notebooks.

Those pricier Core i5 and Core i7 Sandy Bridge chips come with extras like Turbo Frequency (which speeds up the processor to tackle demanding tasks) and larger built-in cache memory. But you're still getting the same basic 32-nanometer chip technology in cheaper versions.
