I've noticed that there is only 512K cache in the most netbooks which makes
then unsuitable for development. ATM this is stopping me from buying one.
Do you know if there are some with larger cache?
The Celeron/M based netbooks have 1MB L2 cache. The dual core AMD and dual
core Atom netbooks have 1MB L2 cache but that's 2 x 512KB per core.
However, compiling code using concurrency_level=2 would definitely see a
speedup using the dual core CPUs, even if they have no more L2 per core vs.
the single core CPUs. If you want to do development on a netbook today, I'd
recommend a dual core model over a single core Celeron with 1MB L2 cache.
So basically you're looking at one model of Asus Eee in black or silver.
Here's the black one:
Given the 12" screen I don't really consider this a "netbook". If your goal
is a small form factor, I think this is the smallest portable you'll find
with a dual core cpu. It's probably not suitable for any kind of real
"development" work, but it will probably be more suitable than any other
"netbook" class portable.
