We have known about the Asus 1201T for a little while now, but it’s specifications have remained mostly unknown until now. This “T” model is one of three from the Asus 1201 12-inch netbook range, which features the already available 1201HA and the upcoming Nvidia Ion powered 1201N models.
It appears that this Asus 1201T model sits between the HA and N models. Unlike the other two models, and most netbooks on the market, the Asus Eee PC 1201T makes use of the AMD Congo MV40 1.6GHz processor, rather than the common Intel Atom CPU.
The Asus 1201T has the same great design and 12.1-inch 1366 x 768 (720p HD) display as the other models, along with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, and a 320 GB hard drive and 500GB online storage.
As well as the AMD MV40 CPU, it also features 1080p HD capable graphics in the form of the ATI Radeon HD3200. Other features include 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, 3x USB 2.0, audio ports, multi-card-reader, and VGA output. If you want HDMI output, you will have to go for the Asus 1201N model.
The Asus Eee PC 1201T features the attractive Seashell design, will be available in black and silver color options, and measures 296mm (W) x 208mm (D) x27.3 ~ 33.3mm (H) and weighs 1.46kg. Price and release date are currently unknown, but I predict it will be available in the next month or two. Via NetbookItalia.

Update 2: The 1201T is now available in the US from NewEgg for $389.99!
