Asus Eee PC 1215N: Dual-core Atom, ION 2 netbook to launch in July

April 23, 2010 at 11:52 am

 Asus Eee PC 1215NFollowing on from this morning’s rumour that the 12-inch Asus Eee PC 1201PN will not feature Nvidia Optimus technology, despite running next-gen ION graphics, Blogeee is reporting on another Asus netbook that will include Optimus.

The Asus Eee PC 1215N netbook will come with Intel’s new dual-core Atom netbook processor, next-generation ION and Optimus technology. It is expected to launch in July. No other specs are known at this time.

Update: Notebook Italia is also confirming the existence of the Eee PC 1215PN, although they say it will launch in June, rather than July. They also confirm the Optimus-less 1201PN and say it will launch in May.

    No, they are saying the dual core will have optimus and the 1201PN will not. This is the first i’ve heard of this and the the main reason everyone is waiting on the 1201PN is for optimus. If it does not have optimus, it’s barely any better than their last ion powered netbook the1201n if you have to manually switch back and forth.

    You are right .. I stand corrected, didn’t read it properly. The 1215 will infact come with Optimus.

    12-in, next-gen ION and optimus technology……

    After months of waiting I think THE netbook has finally arrived. The only thing missing that would determine whether or not the 1215N is a perfect netbook is the battery life.
