Netbook with a notebook spirit. 

Red with Patten

The new Asus 1215B now packs the latest AMD E-450 processor where its 25% better than its previous processor AMD E-350. The 1215B is the bridge between people who wants a lighter notebook without compromising performance.

The AMD E-450 is now equipped with an AMD 6320 (256mb) Graphics that is still clocked at 400Mhz. But with the new AMD Turbo Core technology (kinda sounds like Intel Turbo Boost), its able to overclock in a stable condition making your mobile experience faster when you need it. The processor can already perform well in applications such as Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Visual Studio for programmers or even games like Starcraft II is playable in fair graphics settings.


Now with USB 3.0 compared to its previous generation. The Eee PC 1215B is future ready not only in Hardware but also in design, as its Seashell design is enchanced with 3 colors rather than its just plain White and Black colors before. Now there is Silver, Black with Pattern and Red with Pattern

The chiclet keyboard of Asus is improved in the 1215B not only in ergonomics in typing but as its easier to clean and the keys can't pulled like notebooks in other brands. 

The touchpad is quite big compared to other 12 inches netbooks. although the seamless design is a little setback for persons with big fingers as it may interfere with your touchpad experience due to that when pressign the left and right touchpad buttons there is a chance your finger may touch the sensor area besides your finger in the touchpad area thus can mimic a "Muti-touch" gesture even if you don't want too. 

Asus Eee PC 1215B Specs
  • Dual-core 1.0GHz AMD Fusion E450 
  • Windows 7 Starter
  • 12.1-inch glossy LCD display (1366 x 768)
  • Integrated AMD Radeon HD 6320
  • 2GB DDRAM (upgradeable to 4GB)
  • 500GB 5400rpm SATA HDD
  • WiFi 802.11 a/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0

  • 2-in-1 card reader

Overall the Asus Eee PC 1215B is truly a Netbook with a notebook spirit. Bringing the latest AMD Processor E-450 it will definitely show how a netbook should be. The biggest contender of the 1215B would be HP's new DM1 as they packed Beats Audio in their unit, but we shall see if their audio is better since I haven't seen any of their unit in the market for now.
