ASUS 1215B Features the AMD E-350 Processor at CES 2011
Every manufacturer has come out with a variation of an existing netbook with an AMD processor rather then an Intel Atom. ASUS 1215B is a variation of the 1215 series that usually sports Nvidia Ion 2 for graphics but now has the 1.6GHz AMD E-350 dul core processor and AMD Radeon graphics.
The notebook will be available with 2GB to 4GB of RAM, 250GB to 320GB of hard drive space, and a 6 cell battery. It runs Windows 7 and features 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. Like the rest of the 1215 series it will weighs about 3.2 pounds. It will also come in the same colours we expect from the existing line in black, silver, or red.
Like other Asus notebooks, the demo model featured a number of Asus apps including the Super Hybrid Engine for underclocking and overclocking the processor. I’ll be interested in seeing how well this works with the new AMD E-350 chip.
