Asus EeePC 1201T in the flesh!
Interestingly, Asus’ 12-inch version of their netbooks have only arrived this week despite other PC manufacturers offering them as early as last year. The Asus EeePC 1201T is the 12.1″ version of the Seashell series and I bought a unit for review.
There are supposed to be 3 models in this series — 1201HA running Atom Z520, the 1201N running Atom
N280 N330 with nVidia ION and the 1201T running AMD Athlon MV40 and ATI Radeon HD3200.
The specs of the Asus EeePC 1201T include:
12.1″ display screen @ 1366×768
AMD Athlon MV40 @ 1.6GHz
ATI Radeon HD3200 256MB
2GB DDR2 RAM
320GB SATA HDD
Unlike the other netbooks in this category, the 1201T does not have an HDMI port although Asus claims it can play 1080p HD videos. The unit does not have any OS pre-installed so I got it pretty cheap.
The suggested retail price — Php21,990. Not bad.
