New ASUS Eee PC 1015PN with Ion 2 and Atom N550
ASUS is well known for its netbooks thanks to its Eee PC line of netbooks which have been around since the beginning of netbboks. Now the company has made a new addition to their netbook offering and this time it is the ASUS Eee PC 115PN.
The ASUS Eee PC 1015PN has a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1024×600 pixel. It features NVIDIA Ion 2 next-gen graphics, Intel’s Dual-Core Atom N550 along with 1GB of RAM and a 250GB HDD. It is also capable of HD video playback. The 1015PN is an Optimus enabled device which allows the user to switch between discrete graphics and integrated graphics without the need to reboot the system. This helps in saving the battery life of the netbook.
According to ASUS the Eee PC 1015PN can last for around 9.5 hours after a full charge. However, I believe that average usage may provide a battery life of around 6 hours. The Eee PC 1015PN is priced at $429 US.
