One of the most highly-anticipated netbooks of, well, next year has finally landed on the Amazon.com website!
Yes, the NVidia Ion-powered Asus Eee PC 1201N is now available for pre-order. The price: a paltry $499US.
I’m seriously impressed. I’ve been able to pre-book the 1201N through one of my distributors for a little while now, but this is one of those cases where Amazon beats wholesale pricing hands down. My cost is currently about $523US. Dang.
Here’s what $499 gets you:
- Intel Atom Dual Core N330 Processor 1.6GHz
- 2GB DDR2 RAM, 2 x SODIMM Slot, 8GB Max
- 250GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM) + 500GB Free Web Storage; NVidia ION Platform
- Windows 7 Home Premium Operating System (32 Bit)
- Bluetooth; Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n; 0.3MP Webcam; Free Sleeve Case
Not a bad deal at all, if you ask me. I just wish they were shipping on December 15th 2009 and not January 15th 2010. While you wait, you can always check out Brad’s previous coverage of the 1201N.
