Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1215B-SIV006M

70% Asus Eee PC 1215B Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
ASUS is late to the AMD Fusion party, but the Eee PC 1215B offers slightly better overall performance than competing ultraportables from HP and Sony. And, at $439, the 1215B manages to undercut the competition, and is even $30 less expensive than its Ion counterpart (though the 1215N is better for gaming). Still, in this category, the HP dm1z is tops. For just $10 more, you get a snazzier design, 3GB of RAM, a 320GB, 7,200-rpm hard drive, and an extra hour of battery life. But if you want USB 3.0, good sound, and a good selection of software at a reasonable price, the 1215B is a strong value.

Asus EEE PC 1215B review – impressive mini laptop
Source: Netbooklive English
Nothing changed on the outside from the 1215N, there’s the same seashell body covered in matte rubbery plastic, same keyboard, trackpad and display. However, the 1215B is faster than the 1215N, especially in terms of graphics, so will be able to deal with any kind of HD content and some modern games as well. Plus, you get superior battery life and a smaller price. All these make the 1215B a winner. And with the 1215N being a popular pick, I’m pretty sure the 1215B will get its share of fame, although some might fear picking an AMD powered laptop these days (but there’s no reason to, as the new Fusion platform really is impressive).
