The Eee PC 1201NL is priced around Rs. 25,990 (excluding taxes). This is a pre release product and is not available in India right now, but is expected to come by next month. Conversely, you can buy an Eee PC 1201T right now for Rs. 21,500. That's a saving of Rs. 4,500 straight away. Both are 12-inch netbooks that can play HD.

A lighter version of the 1201N, the Asus Eee PC 1201NL is a slim, nicely designed netbook with an NVIDIA ION chipset. Compact and light in spite of its 12.1 inch screen, the Eee PC 1201 gives good multimedia performance and is a stylish looking machine. The ION chipset means it can handle video no problem. The Atom and 1 GB of RAM do unfortunately impose certain limitations however, holding back the chipset a good deal.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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).


N270:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.

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.

1.4 kg:

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

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
