Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1201T
AMDeee. The 1201T is Asus's first Eee PC with AMD hardware; it provides an interesting alternative to the Eee PC 1201N which has the latest Intel components. Find out how the AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 processor and the ATI graphics measure up in our review.
The Eee PC 1201T sells for just about Rs. 21,500 (excluding taxes) but beware of the fact that it comes with no OS on-board. So you'll have to shell out more if you want to install Windows on it later. It is the first model we've tested that has broken netbook barriers in some respects. Overall, the 1201T is a good option for people who are interested in HD playback. But we really missed an HDMI port on it and we're sure many will feel the same. Also, if you're looking for a netbook with a five-hour plus battery life, then the 1201T is not for you. However, if you're looking for a big-screened netbook to watch HD movies along with internet and office productivity, then the 1201T is a decent and cheap option. Let's hope the Eee PC 1201PNL (with an Intel Atom-NVIDIA ION combination) gives us what's missing from this netbook.

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
MV-40: Slow single core processor for small and thin laptops. A bit faster than Atom based systems but the power consumption is also higher.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
