Asus has begun shipping the Eee PC 1215T in the US. This notebook has a 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display a 1.7GHz AMD Athlon Neo K125 CPU and AT Radeon HD 4250 graphics. It’s basically what you would get if you crossed an Eee PC 1215N with an Acer Aspire One 721.

The Eee PC 1215T looks like most other 12 inch notebooks from Asus, which is to say it has a chiclet-style keyboard with flat keys and spaces between them, a nice wide touchpad with a single button below it, and a curved case design which is wider in the back than the front. The notebook has a glossy HD display and HDMI and VGA output. It runs Windows 7 Home Premium and has 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive.

What makes the Eee PC 1215T different from most other notebook from Asus are the AMD processor and ATI graphics. While I haven’t tested this model specifically, I can say that based on my experience the ATI K125 CPU offers roughly twice the performance of an Intel Atom N450 chip while the ATI Radeon HD 4200 series graphics chips offer 3D and HD video capabilities that are similar to first generation NVIDIA ION graphics. Not bad for a notebook 3.2 pound notebook that’s selling for $436 at Amazon. There’s no word on the battery life though.

  1. The AMD Neo K125 CPU seems to be very good. I recently helped a friend buy a Toshiba Satellite T230/00L which also has the AMD K125 but with HD 4225. I have to say, i was really impressed with the performance of this machine, and the 1.7 Ghz CPU is up to any day to day task, including multimedia… !

  2. Hey Brad, I’m not trying to troll. Just a point of information.From the official Asus site:”Go anywhere in style with the Eee PC™ 1215T Seashell – An excellent Netbook for multimedia enjoyment”and “The Eee PC™ 1215T defies the notion of netbooks being designed just to cater to basic computing needs, with its impressive multimedia performance and modern features.”====Your site, your influence your call. Obviously. I’m just making a point of information for the sake of clarity. You can continue to push and drown “netbook” which is totally fine. I’m just pointing out that apparently Asus isn’t hung up or limiting what is or isn’t a netbook. Just providing some actual facts to the table. Cheers and keep up the great work you workaholic!gemasteraka gman
