Asus Eee PC 1218P aluminium netbook on the horizon

Asus Eee PC 1218It looks like Asus weren’t ready to announce news of a new netbook in its 12-inch series called the Eee PC 1218. To my eyes it looks like a 12-inch version of the desirable Eee PC 1018P.

AsusDesign has prematurely revealed that the netbook as a 2010 RedDot Award winner. The Eee PC 1015 and 1215 also won the award. The Eee PC 1218 appears to be clad in aluminium and comes with a chiclet keyboard, retractable webcam and ports located at the back. There’s little other information for now, but let’s hope it comes with next-generation ION graphics and would it be too much to ask for dual-Atom too? Check out a larger screencap after the break.

Update: Digitimes reports that the Eee PC 1218 will sport Nvidia ION graphics.

    Whether this is just a concept Eee PC or a look at things to come for Asus’ most successful product series remains a mystery right now. But we’re guessing that we may know the answer to this in time for Computex 2010 happening in Taipei sometime in June.

    If you’re going to own a netbook, it should look like this.
