Asus Eee PC 1201N

 

Better video performane due to the Ion chipset ; Big, high res screen for a netbook

2GB max memory limits usefulness ; Much more expensive than most netbooks

The Eee PC 1201n offers better video performance and a bigger screen than most netbooks, but at a cringe-worthy price.

Asus EeePC 1201N

 

The ASUS EeePC 1201N is the best 12-inch netbook in the market, even though it only has 4 hours of battery life.

Dual-core Atom processor. Nvidia's Ion platform benefits smooth HD playback and light 3D gaming. Lightweight. Full size keyboard. Fastest netbook available. Large 12-inch widescreen. HDMI port included. 2GB of RAM standard

Battery life is a tradeoff.

Asus Eee PC Seashell 1201N review: Asus Eee PC Seashell 1201N

 

Asus Eee PC Seashell 1201N

Dual-core Atom processor, solid gaming graphics for a Netbook, large screen, affordable for its features.

Awkward touch pad, mediocre battery life.

As one of the few Netbooks with a dual-core Atom processor and Nvidia Ion graphics, the 12.1-inch EeePC 1201N has superior performance compared with most Atom-based machines, but any higher-level ULV thin-and-light will still do better.

Review Asus Eee PC 1201N Ion-Notebook

 

Ion meets Eee. As far as netbooks are concerned, Asus has always

Attractive case; Solid workmanship; HDMI port, 3x USB; Fully functional keyboard; 12 inch display with HD resolution bids a good overview; Good CPU and GPU performance data; Gaming suitable with restrictions; Low case heating

Smudge susceptible high gloss surfaces; Average VGA quality; Keyboard has clattery areas; Average display brightness and glare surface prevent outdoor use; Always present fan

In a tighter sense, Ion models of other brands: Samsung N510, HP Mini 311 followed by 13" ULV Notebooks: Asus UL30, Toshiba T130, HP Pavilion dm3, Dell Vostro V13, Samsung X120, ... still in the race: classic netbooks of all manufacturers.

ASUS Eee PC 1201N Review

 

The ASUS Eee PC 1201N is loaded with Intel's dual-core Atom as well as NVIDIA's ION. This computer falls into its own little category since it is too fast to be a netbook and not as powerful as a CULV notebook. Read our full review to find out how well...

Great build quality ; Responsive touchpad ; Nice display

Only slightly faster single core Atom with NVIDIA ION ; Poor battery life

Asus Eee 1201N Review

 

What differentiates one netbook model from any other of the same size? There are only a few flavors, after all: last-gen netbooks, with Atom N270 or N280 processors and Windows XP; current-gen netbooks, with Pine Trail Atom processors and Windows 7;...

Dual-core performance; thin profile; comfortable keyboard; Ion graphics; 2GB RAM

Middlin' battery life; hard drive not easily upgradable; smudge-prone

At $500, the 1201N hits the upper end of the netbook range. But that buys you Ion graphics, dual-core processing power, 2GB of RAM, a real version of Windows 7, and a screen that can display 720p video. Next-gen Ion systems will have better battery...

Asus Eee PC Seashell 1201N and the Acer Ferrari One FO200-1799

 

Today we'll take a close look at two netbooks, the Asus Eee PC Seashell 1201N and the Acer Ferrari One FO200-1799. Both offer very good performance in their class, along with a few surprises.

A good amount of storage for all of your important data is available with the system's 250 GB hard drive. Battery life is where this particular netbook disappoints a bit, however, as its six-cell battery only provides around five hours of usage when...

Asus Eee PC 1201n Netbook

 

A brand you may not encounter often, Asus, has a netbook that deserves a second, or even third glance. The Eee PC 1201n resembles conventional thin and light laptops based on CULV mainstream CPUs. It has a hefty price tag at $489, but it has both a...

Large, high-resolution screen for a netbook ; Good video performance ; Ion chipset

Expensive ; 2GB memory limit

Asus Eee 1201N ION Review - The Netbook. Supercharged.

 

With Asus product design and NVIDIA's ION graphics, the Asus Eee 1201N has all the markings of a winner. But can a netbook with an identity crisis win the hearts and dollars of consumers?
