Asus' ION 2 based Eee PC 1015PN netbook has finally found its way to retail/e-tail. Although still not available, it is nice to see that it is finally listed and coming.

The full specs of Eee PC 1015PN include, amongst other things, Intel's Atom N475 CPU clocked at 1.83GHz, 1GB of DDR3 memory, 250GB of HDD space and 802.11bgn WiFi. It has a 10.1-inch LED TFT screen with 1024x600 resolution, features Windows 7 Starter OS and a 6-cell 5200mAh battery.

The star of the specifications show is Nvidia's ION 2 GPU, or to be precise, GT218 GPU core paired up with Nvidia's Optimus graphics switching tech.

And it's a single-core... Seriously, you can get a proper 11.6- or 13-inch CULV for that sort of cache... With a dual core processor and a 1366x768 screen

Probably worse graphics though, which means that despite that, this would probably be better for games. You have to look towards something like an Alienware M11x for a real comparison, which is much more expensive.

The Ferrari line you are paying for the label.

Its 1024x600, which is more than 800x600 but not 720p's worth. They do a 12 inch though with 1366x768 for 720p.

HP sells a 10.1" netbook with a 1366x768 screen and a broadcom chip which works fine for 720p videos. Ion doesn't bring anything new to the table. Not like i can play any games with an ion chip anyways. Atom is wayy too underpowered for it.
