I wonder if this has a higher resolution than 1024x600.

Nope. Still the ridiculous 1024x600, even though they seemed to have learned their lesson with the retarded glossy/glare LCDs. All sub-models (more like color variations) have a matte screen.

Edit: the R052C-GRY001S (gray) and the R052CE-WHI002S (white) seem to be in stock on cyberport.de (in the link above, the top and bottom-most entries), whereas the amazon.de links all say "Ready to ship in 1-2 months" lol

I can't believe Intel is still restricting the netbook platform to 1GB of RAM and 1024*600 screens. Screw that, get an AMD Brazos netbook and call it a day.
