Although it’s not set to go on sale in the UK until early next year, Electric Pig managed to get their hands on the higly-anticipated Asus Eee PC 1201N.

As Electric Pig notes, the 1201N is somewhat of a beefed-up 1005HA. It sports a larger 6 cell, 5200mAh battery, HDMI output, and a 12″ 1366×768 display. In their initial handling, the 1201N didn’t disappoint – not surprising with the dual-core Atom 330 and Nvidia ION internals.

  1. i am falling behind here…i thought the dual core atom 330 wasn’t going to be much faster just more efficient, which would only make this a little better than current ions. culv’s are much faster correct?

  2. Bah, it’s nice and all, but a 12″ screen.. why can’t they put good components like this into a 10″ form factor?

    1. I think they’ve determined that 10″ form factor is for those that want the ultimate portability and 12″ is for those that want a little more power. I think, in time, you’ll start to see ATi and Ion powered 10″ books, but not very soon. Intel and Microsoft have done everything they can to limit 10″ books that are too powerful.

  3. The wait for the 1201N is killing me! Just release it so that I can buy it. Thanks
