New additions to the Asus Eee PC lineup of netbooks seem to be pouring in at least once a month and the upcoming Fusion-equipped notebook is no exception.
Called the R051BX, the 10.1-inch netbook runs on an entry-level dual-core 1GHz AMD Fusion C-50 with an integrated Radeon HD 6250 GPU, 1024x600 resolution display, 320GB HDD, 2x USB 2.0, webcam, card reader and an HDMI port. All pretty standard options in terms of netbooks of this category.
What’s noteworthy, however, is its soldered 1GB DDR3 RAM and supposedly possibly short battery life. According to Laptoping, the built-in RAM is non-upgradeable and the only battery option is a 3-cell module. As a result, the limited and un-modifiable hardware could be turned away by many wallets.
The R051BX is now available in Germany for 259 Euros ($342 USD), although a launch stateside is still unknown at this point.
