The new AMD Fusion-based laptops should be available this April at reasonable prices

The Asus Eee PC 1015B and 1215B first made appearances at CES this year and appeared again just last week at the CeBIT expo in Germany. The laptops are notable for their AMD Fusion APUs, thus they should be able to provide smooth 1080p playback through HDMI while keeping a solid battery life. No announcements regarding prices and release dates were mentioned, however, until just recently.

Asus has posted on their CampusLife website what prospective buyers should expect when the laptops become available. The Eee PC 1015B will be priced at just $289.99 while the Eee PC 1215B will be at $379.99. Both laptops should be shipping sometime this April.
