The Eee PC 1201T is one of umpteen versions of the Asus Eee PC 1201-series of laptops. They all have 12.1 inch, 1366  x 768 pixel displays ans the same chassis and keyboard. But while the Eee PC 1201N, 1201HA, and 1201NL all have Intel Atom processors, the Eee PC 1201T has an AMD Neo MV-40 CPU and ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics.

The folks at Yugatech have posted one of the first reviews I’ve seen of the AMD version of this laptop. There’s not a lot of information about the overall performance, but here are a few things I learned:

  • The Eee PC 1201T comes with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium (most other models have the 32-bit version).
  • The computer has a Windows Experience Index of 3.1 (with the graphics notching the lowest score and the CPU weighing in at 3.2). By comparison, the Eee PC 1201N has an Index of 3.3, with a 4.3 graphics score, but a 3.3 for the CPU.
  • HD video appears to be a mixed bag, with the Eee PC 1201T playing 1080p HD video locally without a problem, but struggling with 720p and higher resolution Flash video.
  • Battery life was pretty sad, with the computer lasting about 2.5 hours with a 4400mAh battery.

Yugatech reports that the Eee PC 1201T sells for about 21,900 Philippine pesos ($471 US) in the Philippines.

  1. does it play 1080p DivX videos via the hdmi port without troubles?
    i think i’m going to buy it, caus i don’t want to cary my pc all the time to my hd beamer wenn i want to watch a movie…
    thx for the benchmark, but can you pls make som more like unigin heaven (grafic) or a prim benchmark (cpu)

  2. This netbook has “suck” written all over it. A few weeks ago I wrote about why Asus should just scrap the 1201T. Other netbooks with similar specs have already come out and no one noticed them because they provided horrible battery life and overall performance. Even the Lenovo x100e is fighting to stay relevant with the only savings grace being the trackpoint. People over at Netbooked have said in the comments that the only reason they spend the $400 something dollars on it was because of that. Sad.

  3. I was going “not another asus netbook when I say the Amd and the ati graphics. I was hoping someone would go that route. My Zino HD with Amd and Ati 4300 is for $349 is the best computer for the money I have ever owned. Some people don’t like Amd, but I am a big fan.
    Without their competition Intel would have on a $400 1200ghz 32bit cpu.
