Lenevo's FL5-B3 netbook has been given an early showing on the net. This is an interesting model as it looks to be the first that is confirmed to be powered by Intel's new PineView processor (next-gen to the highly underwhelming Atom), running at 1.66GHz (Atom N540). The processor has a built-in DDR2 memory controller with integrated graphics and also a Broadcom video decoding processor.




Other known specs of the particular unit at this point in time include a 10.1-inch screen with a native res of 1024x600, 250GB HDD and 2GB of RAM.




Photos come from the FCC after the unit made an appearance late Friday night in a filing by Intel.




Whilst what we see here looks to be in final form, PineView isn't expected to be formally introduced until January of next year, so it's not likely we'll see this model from Lenevo officially launched till after such time.
