Asus Eee PC 1215B, Starting @ $380
For those of you who are looking for a quick computer purchase, check out the Asus Eee PC 1215B. This is a 12.1-inch laptop, powered by an AMD Fusion processor and starts at a base price of just $379. The laptop is just a tad pricier than your typical notebook, but has better graphics, higher resolution display, larger keyboard, and ships out with Windows 7 Home Premium.
For a $449 model, users will get a 1.6GHz AMD E-350 dual core processor and Radeon HD 6310 graphics. The base model is a 1GHz AMD C-50 dual core CPU and has Radeon HD 6250 graphics. The specs are very similar to the HP Pavilion dm1z, but the screen is a bit larger.
The resolution on the 12-inch screen is 1366 x 768 pixels. Amazon is selling the Eee PC 1215B-PU17 with the AMD E-350 processor for just under $440. Buy.com is selling the cheaper model for just under $380. While I’ve never been a huge fan of AMD processors, this laptop will surely be sufficient for a college notebook. It’s small enough to type on a compact desk and weighs similar to your average college textbook, upper division, that is. Take a peak at the video and see for yourself!
