This netbook is one of the earliest adopters of Intel's new Pine Trail platform, which comprises of the new Atom N450 CPU and NM10 chipset. The 532h is a regular sized net book, just a tad thinner on average at 0.99 inches. The weight is also lighter than average at 108 kgs. The lid is glossy with a deep blue finish, which the wrist rest also sports.
The chiclet style keyboard stretches from end to end, though the [Enter] key is not full sized and the arrow keys as a little cramped. The touch pad has a contoured black matte finish, with a separate scroll zone. The touch pad has the correct degree of sensitivity and is good to use. As for connections we have the standard set of 3 USB ports, a card reader, VGA out, Ethernet (10/100), and audio jacks.
The battery is regular 6 cell Li-ion strip. Windows XP SP3 comes preinstalled, along with a watered down version of McAfee Security and also a trial version of Microsoft Office. Benchmark results are not too different from the older Atom N270 processor, at least in CPU benchmarks. Intel did not really claim better performance, so that's fine, having said that some of the real world test results were slightly above average.
