The Asus Eee PC 1201N doesn’t go on sale here in the UK until the new year, but we’ve just blagged one, and cracked it open on camera for you on the unboxing bench. Want to see this Ion fuelled laptop up close? Read on for the piccies.
We were the first to tell you that the Asus Eee PC 1201N, with a 12.1-inch screen, Atom 330 dual core processor and Nvidia Ion graphics for trotting out HD video, was UK bound, and now we’ve had a play we can see why Asus has been hyping it up. It’s essentially a larger version of the black Eee PC 1005HA with a beefy battery.

It’s got the same island keyboard and dimpled trackpad, but the twist is the Asus Eee PC 1201N also sports a HDMI port. The idea is that you can watch HD video on the train home, then when you get in the door, you can plug it in to your TV for continued hi-res viewing.
We’ll be putting the Asus Eee PC 1201N through its paces for a full review coming shortly, but in the meantime, check it out up close here in our gallery.
