When I spotted the Eee PC 1215B laptop at the Asus booth this weekend I had no idea that the AMD Zacate-powered machine had a little brother. But the folks at Notebook Italia dug up some info on a related model called the Asus Eee PC 1015B.
The 1015B has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display and a smaller case and keyboard design. But it has the same 1.6GHz dual core AMD 350 processor and AMD Radeon HD graphics, which should offer an overall speed boost over a typical Atom-powered netbook and a much better graphics experience (on par with what you would get from a machine with NVIDIA ION graphics).
There’s no word on pricing or availability yet.

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.

What makes the Eee PC 1215T different from most other notebook from Asus are the AMD processor and ATI 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.
