Still Waiting for the ASUS Eee PC X101

Posted by Hooch Tan in "Laptop Thoughts News" @ 01:30 PM

"ASUS has gone and made its super svelte Eee PC X101 official with a dedicated product page live on its site. We'd already gotten our hands-on with the crimson-colored ultraportable, but now there's a whole list of specs to flesh out this 920g wonder."

The specifications for the X101 do not look that impressive. In fact, it looks a lot like many of the netbooks of years gone by. Probably the biggest part of interest is the $199 price tag, which is finally starting to get the price of the netbook down to where it was originally supposed to be. I do not see the X101 saving the netbook industry, however. Netbooks will still play a wonderful role in our mobile computing, but tablets are the hot item, and what everyone is talking about. You will definitely not impress anyone at Starbucks with one of these.

ASUS 1215N Pushes The Limits Of Portable Computing

"The ASUS Eee PC 1215N comes the closest yet to that ideal of a sub-$500 machine that performs like systems that cost more--yet lasts even longer on a charge. That's because it's packed with a dual-core Atom processor and Nvidia's Optimus graphics-switching technology. Not only that, the 1215N features an improved design that makes it more comfortable to use for extended periods of time."

At 12 inches, the 1215N straddles the fence between being a netbook and a notebook. While Intel has recently released a dual-core Atom CPU specifically for netbooks, the 1215N sports a dual-core Atom that is designed for nettops or low end desktops. The result is a notebook that offers the best of both worlds at a competitive price. I just hope this is the first of many notebooks that offer this kind of configuration. These 16" and 17" laptops that weight half as much as a Hummer are becoming a strain on my shoulders. Is anyone else hoping to get this soon?

ASUS Eee PC 1215N Netbook for Power Users

"The phrase "netbook powerhouse" would typically be considered an oxymoron. That was before ASUS announced its Eee PC 1215N bumpin' a 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Atom D525 processor with NVIDIA Optimus to intelligently switch between its NVIDIA Ion discrete and integrated graphics."

ASUS has always been good at anticipating the changing needs of netbook users, and the new Eee PC 1215N continues the trend, further blurring the thin line between netbook and laptop. Details are a bit sparse today, but this "network powerhouse" sports a dual-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom D525 processor, a 12-inch 1366x768 display, NVIDIA Optimus to allow switching between integrated and NVIDIA ION graphics, and hardware decoding for H.264, MPEG2 and VC1 HD Videos to allow 1080p video playback in 16:9 format.
