Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1215B-BLK017M

ASUS Eee PC 1215B-MU17-BK 12.1-inch Netbook PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
ASUS is one of the few companies to have offered a netbook that has a 12-inch display. The extra resolution of the display has the advantage of provide a much nicer experience that is less cramped. It also provides extra space for a larger, more spacious keyboard. The AMD C-50 doesn't offer much of a performance advantage over an Intel Atom based model except that it can fully support HD video.

Asus has priced the 1215B quite well at Rs. 17,999 and a one-year on-site warranty. This is without Windows 7 Starter, so even if we had to include the OS cost it should not go beyond 20K. For this price you're getting a 12.1-inch screen, great keyboard, HDMI, decent battery life and the ability to easily playback 1080p content, thanks to AMD's Fusion APU. If you're looking for the cheapest 12-inch netbook that plays back 1080p and has a good battery life then the 1215B seems to fit the bill perfectly.

AMD Radeon HD 6250: Integrated graphics card in the Ontario netbook processors (e.g. C-50 and C-30) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory.

C-50: Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. Due to the low clock speed, the CPU should be only as fast as a single core Atom CPU, but offers a faster integrated GPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.

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