But now the Asus 1215N has shown up for
pre-order in the UK from Amazon for just £429. It also lists a release / shipping date of August 23rd.
Update: It’s now available and shipping in the UK!
As far as I’m aware, this is the first time it had shown for pre-order, and has yet to show in the U.S. But following this UK announcement, we’re sure it will follow suit very shortly.
If you’re looking for a portable notebook and want something slightly bigger and powerful than an average 10-inch netbook the Asus 1215N should be a good bet.
It offers a higher resolution 12.1-inch display of 1366 x 768 pixels for more screen space, along with a stylish finish.
It’s powered by the new Intel Atom D525 dual core 1.8GHz 64-bit processor and new Nvidia Ion 2 (next generation) graphics, along with 2GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive.
The Asus 1215N has a quoted battery life of up to 7 hours. The performance and battery life is balanced by an intelligent switching technology, which stitches the Ion 2 graphics and and off as they are needed, providing both graphics performance and battery saving.
Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3x USB 2.0, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, and a multicard reader.
