If you’ve been waiting (im)patiently for Asus to bring the Eee PC 1215N mini-laptop with next-gen NVIDIA ION graphics to the US, it looks like you might have to wait just a little bit longer. Engadget reports that Asus will start shipping the laptop in the States on or around August 23rd.
Sure, next week would have been more exciting. But we’ll have to take what we can get.
The Eee PC 1215N will have a 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, a 1.8GHz Intel Atom D525 dual core processor, and the latest NVIDIA ION graphics as well as NVIDIA Optimus technology for automatically switching between the low power Intel graphics and the higher performance NVIDIA graphcis — which draw more power and reduce your overal battery life.
The notebook is expected to sell for under $500.
