ASUS Eee PC 1201N Ion-Based Seashell Ready For $500 Amazon Pre-Order

ASUS Eee PC 1201N Ion-Based Seashell Ready For $500 Amazon Pre-Order

By | Dec 4, 2009

It’s a bit later than the mid-December target heard previously, but ASUS’ 12-inch Ion-packing Eee PC 1201n is up for pre-order with an anticipated January 15 release. A penny short of $500 takes home a dual-core N330 processor clocking 1.6GHz on the Atomic clock, 2GB of DDR2 memory with room to expand to 8GB, a 250GB 5,400 RPM hard disk, Bluetooth, 802.11n WiFi, webcam, and fancy new 32-bit Windows 7 Home Premium OS — none of that Starter Edition netbook nonsense. Here’s the rub: are you really going to pull the trigger for a legacy Diamondville-class Atom lappie now knowing that the big CES event in January will likely be flooded with Intel’s latest Pineview-class machines sporting new N450 Atom processors, of which, at least a few will offer HD video acceleration? Pre-order now if you want but we’d wait until January 11th to see what might get announced.
