ASUS Eee PC 1201PN With NVIDIA’s ION2 Chipset

ASUS Eee PC 1201PN is a netbook from ASUS with NVIDIA’s second generation ION GPU and Intel Atom N450 processor. Its screen size is 12 inch compared to a traditional netbook screen size of 10 inches. It is pre-installed with Windows 7 Home Premium Operating System and it supports HD video. Nvidia Ion 2 chip in ASUS Eee PC 1201PN really plays a nice role in playing HD video. It has 2GB RAM and 250 GB SATA Hard disk. Now let us check the details of this model.

ASUS Eee PC 1201PN Mini Laptop Configuration
It is better to start with the processor and processor speed. It has Intel ATOM N450 Processor with 1.66 GHz frequency. You do not see any difficulties with running high definition videos on 1201PN due to NVIDIA’s second generation ION GPU.

It is HD capable and runs most of the high definition videos.

Now let us check the storage it supports. It has 250 GB SATA Hard Drive with 5400 RPM. If you purchase this model soon, you may get a promotional offer of 500GB of online ASUS web storage.

This promotional pack may be discontinued after the promotional period. 1201PN has 2 GB DDR2 RAM and pre-installed with Windows 7 home premium version. It has a six-cell battery with considerably good battery life.

Data Transfer
You can use the following modes to transfer data from this netbook. It has Bluetooth, USB ports and 802.11 b/g/n wireless adapter along with Ethernet port. Bluetooth support USB 2.o technology.

One of the negative points I see is the lack of a Linux version of Eee PC 1201PN. Every piece comes with Windows 7 as the default Operating System. If you want a Linux mini laptop, you have to install the Linux on it by yourself.
