While there’s reason to believe that some of the first laptops with next-generation NVIDIA ION graphics could ship in France soon, it looks like we might have to wait a little while before they start to show up in the US. Engadget reports that Acer and Asus have both confirmed that their first notebooks with next-generation ION graphics won’t be ready to ship in the US until late May or possibly early June.

That’s when Asus plans to introduce its Eee PC 1201PN laptop with a 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel HD display, Intel Atom N450 processor, and NVIDIA ION graphics. Acer’s first offering will be the Aspire One 532g with a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel HD display, Atom N450 processor, and a scaled back version of NVIDIA’s next-gen ION graphics designed for smaller laptops.

  1. Maybe they’ll have an option on the 1201PN for dual cores later on? Seeing as how intel just announced they’d be implementing them a little later, and the 1201N had one already, I don’t think we (or they, more importantly) should rule it out.
