When I spotted the Eee PC 1215B laptop at the Asus booth this weekend I had no idea that the AMD Zacate-powered machine had a little brother. But the folks at Notebook Italia dug up some info on a related model called the Asus Eee PC 1015B.
The 1015B has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and a smaller case and keyboard design. But it has the same 1.6GHz dual core AMD
E-350 processor and AMD Radeon HD graphics, which should offer an overall speed boost over a typical Atom-powered netbook and a much better graphics experience (on par with what you would get from a machine with NVIDIA ION graphics).
There’s no word on pricing or availability yet.
Update: It looks like this model may actually have an AMD C-50 Ontario processor rather than the E-350 Zacate chip that had originally been reported.
