Comes to Europe next month
According to various reports around the net new Asus' ION based Eee PC 1201 will apparently be available in Europe as of next month but we are sure that Asus will announce it officially in a matter of days.
The new 12.1-incher has 296x208x27.3-33.3mm (WxDxH) dimensions, weighs around 1.46kg, and will feature Intel's dual-core Atom 330 CPU, up to 3GB of DDR2 memory and of course Nvidia's ION graphics. The 12.1-inch LED-backlit screen has a maximum resolution 1366 x 768, but we still aren't sure if it is glossy or mate.
The rest of the specs include either a 250GB or 320GB hard drive coupled with 500GB of Asus WebStorage trial, which means that you can use it for one year, 802.11bgn WiFi, optional Bluetooth, webcam, HD audio codec, integrated stereo speakers and microphone, VGA and HDMI outputs, three USB ports, card reader and one LAN port.
The Eee PC 1201N will ship with Windows 7 and a 6-cell Li-ion battery that is enough for 5 hours, as measured by Asus via MobileMark 2 in Windows 7. Despite reports that it should become available as of next month, we are quite sure that Asus will officially announce it soon.
