The ASUS Eee PC 1215 was the highest powered netbook on the market with NVIDIA’s Ion graphics core, its AMD variants indicated with the B tacked onto the end were equally as successful since they too provided additional graphics power. ASUS has not given up this line up since they’ve and has quietly put up a product page for the11.6″ netbook which is based on AMD’s Brazos chipset.
There will be two CPU options with an AMD C60 dual-core 1GHz processor and the dual-core 1.65GHz E450 APU. It is capable of up to 4GBs of DDR3 RAM and storage options starting at 320GB and ATI Radeon HD 6320/6290*1 integrated graphics with DirectX 11. Additional specs include an 11.6-inch display with 1,366 x 768 screen resolution an integrated webcam, both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, VGA and HDMI outputs just like its predecessor. The price point of the 1225B remains in the same premium category and should start at 349 ($455). Battery life is claimed at around 7 hours, which leaves me wanting a little more.
Release dates remain unknown, but with CES just few weeks away we’re sure to get some hands on time and a few more answers.
