Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1201HA

70% Asus Eee PC 1201HA
Source: Techtree.com English
The Eee PC 1201HA is priced at Rs. 24,000 plus tax. Of the previous two models we tested, the NVIDIA ION based 1201NL sells for just Rs. 2,000 more. A typical 10-inch netbook with a slightly faster processor sells in the range of Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 18,000. So, that's an extra six grand that you'll pay at least for the 1201HA, to get two more inches of screen size, and slightly better ergonomics. If you look at it this way, the 1201HA's price does feel a little on the higher side.

The Asus Eee PC 1201HA sells for £349 inc VAT. And the choice you have to make couldn't be more simpler: if you desire good looks, modest performance, and amazing battery life, you should buy the Eee PC 1101HA. But if you desire greater RAM and storage space and the latest Windows 7 operating system on your netbook, go for the Asus Eee PC 1201HA.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 500: Integrated (onboard) graphics chip on the UL11L, US15L, and US15W chipsets with a licensed PowerVR SGX core. DirectX 10.1 support but because of low clock rates (100-200 MHz UL11L - US15) and only 4 shaders not suited for 3D games. The integrated video decoder accelerates the playback of HD videos (MPEG2, VC-1, AVC).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z520:

Power efficient single core CPU with a very low performance. Offers more features (power saving, VT-x) than the N series Atoms.

12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
