Asus Eee PC 1201K netbook surfaces with AMD Geode processor

Asus has debuted yet another new netbook, although the 12.1-inch Eee PC 1201K is slightly larger than usual and runs on an AMD Geode NX 1750 processor.

Asus has debuted yet another new netbook, although the 12.1-inch Eee PC 1201K is slightly larger than usual and runs on an AMD Geode NX 1750 processor.

Asus really appears to be breaking the netbook mold with this machine. Another few points of notable interest is the integration of a SiS 741GX/966L chipset and that Windows XP Home is the only operating system option. Developers have also paid some extra attention to the LED-backlit WXGA display, which hosts a 1,366 x 768 resolution and a glossy color-shine touch for easier reading.

Most Asus netbooks and laptops follow similar patterns when it comes to specs, so these small innovations could point to some bigger design and development choices down the road.

For now, here's what else can be found inside the Eee PC 1201K netbook:

  • 1GB of DDR1 SO-DIMM memory
  • 160GB/250GB/320GB hard drive
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR
  • MMC/SD/SDHC card reader
  • 0.3-megapixel webcam
  • 6-cell Li-ion battery
  • Connectivity: Two USB 2.0 ports, VGA, RJ-45 LAN, Headphone, Microphone
  • Weight: 3.2 pounds

While we know it will be available in black and silver, there doesn't seem to be any information pointing towards a definite price or release timeline yet.
