The Asus Eee PC 1015B and 1215B mini-laptops with AMD chips won’t ship in the US until April, but the company has been showing the computers off for a few months. Now Asus has posted official product pages on its web site for each model.
As expected, the Eee PC 1015B features a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and Windows 7 Starter Edition. It will be available with either a 1.2 GHz AMD-C30 single core processor or a 1 GHz AMD C-50 dual core chip. Both models feature AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics.
The 10 inch netbook supports 1-2 GB of DDR3 memory and will be available with up to 500GB of hard drive space, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1 or Bluetooth3.0 and a 0.3MP camera. The laptop also has HDMI output in addition to the usual range of netbook ports including VGA, USB, and audio jacks. Battery options will include a 3 cell, 23W/h battery and a 6 cell 56W/h battery.
The Eee PC 1215B features a larger 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and runs Windows 7 Home Premium.
Interestingly, it looks like Asus will offer three different processor options: the same AMD C-30 and C-50 chips available in the 10 inch netbook, or a more powerful 1.6 GHz AMD E-350 dual core processor with Radeon HD 6310 graphics.
The Asus Eee PC 1215B will be available with 2 to 4GB of RAM, up to 500GB of hard drive, space, and all the other goodies that you get with the smaller version including HDMI, WiFI, and Bluetooth. It will ship standard with a 6 cell, 56W/h battery.
Both computers are available for pre-order from a handful of US retailers including ExcaliberPC and Abe’s of Maine.
