This uses the AMD Athlon II Neo Dual-Core K325 1.3 "Ultrathin" line of processors. I bought it for an incredible holiday promotion price of $300 bucks new.
Summary: First I bought this over the ER1402-55 for a slightly larger disk (250GB) but more for the dual core processor.

Less bloatware to clean up, more hard drive space available, I like this product much more.
