Remember the Asus Eee PC 1201N netbook we heard rumours about back in September? The Ion-infused little laptop is real, and it’s headed our way before year end, we’ve confirmed. Read on for the full skinny.
It’s been a bit quiet on the netbook front in recent months, but a new addition is about to join the Eee PC family, the Eee PC 1210N, with Ion graphics like an Acer Aspire Revo, so you’ll be able to trot out HD video at a canter. It was leaked on a Chinese site back in September, and is listed on Asus’s support site as running Windows XP or Windows 7, but we’ve now learned that it’s headed to UK shops in December.
Precise specs for the 12-inch UK Asus Eee PC 1201N model are still to be confirmed, but it’s likely that it’ll pack NVIDIA’s Ion chipset, HDMI to slap it up to a big screen, and Windows 7 rather than XP. According to an Italian listing, one European version will feature a 320GB hard drive, 3GB of RAM and an Intel Atom N330 processor, and will cost €510 (£460) but this could still change.
Stay tuned for an official announcement on the Asus Eee PC 1201N later this month, and we’ll bring you all the finished specs there and then.
