Reviews for the Asus Eee PC 1215T
The Second Try. In the Eee PC 1215T, Asus releases a new AMD netbook with a 12 inch display onto the market that allegedly bids more performance than its predecessor. You regrettably wait in vain for a matt HD display. We've put the newest Eee sprout through its paces.
Our test unit came pre-loaded with Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit), whereas the unit available in the market comes with DOS. So obviously, you’d be paying more than Rs 22,499 if you’re buying the one with Windows. While we await the price confirmation, below are the specs of the unit available currently. We’ve rated this product considering that it is priced at 22,499, with DOS. If it was with Windows, in this price, it would’ve been a steal. But with Windows 7, the price will be nearing 28K (approximately), in which case, it’s better to buy a dual-core netbook built around an Ion platform. Or better yet, get a full-fledged laptop for 30K.

The Asus Eee PC 1215T is a 12-inch netbook which offers greater performance, larger screen compared to Intel Atom-based netbooks currently available in the market. It can also play 1080p HD video files and comes with an HDMI port. However, it has a below-par keyboard and battery life.

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
K125: Slow entry level single core CPU for small and light laptops. Still faster as 1.6 Ghz Atom based systems.» 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.
