Asus 1015B And 1215B Now Officially On The Official Website

The AMD powered 1015B and 1215B netbooks from Asus are yet to be released in the US but the word has reached the shores long before Asus chose to make them official. The company has been showing it off recently and finally they have decided to put up official product pages for the netbooks up on the website. So now it looks like the April shipping date is more believable.

So far, there’s nothing outside what was expected out of them. The 1015 sports a 10.1 inch display with a 1024×600 pixel resolution. It comes preloaded with a Windows 7 Starter Edition. it is powered by a 1.2GHz AMD-C30 single core or a C50 dual core processor. They will both have the AMD Radeon 6250 graphics chip for handling all polygons and shadings. It will support 1 and 2 GB of DDr3 RAM along with the usual connectivity options — Bluetooth 2.1 and WiFi (b/g/n). There’s also HDMI, USB and VGA out. The combination of VGA and HDMI is actually an uncommon on one but it will be welcome to media professionals doing presentations. So it’s a plus.

The 1215 is a larger model with a 12.1 inch with a 1366×768 pixel resolution. Along with the same processors as the 10inch model, it also has the option for the more powerful AMD E-350 dual core processor with Radeon HD 6310 graphics.  It holds 2 to 4GB RAM  and also offers 500gb of hdd storage. Other than that it also has the sme connectivity options. They both have the 6 cell/56W/h battery but on the 1215b it is standard whilst on the 1015 it is an option over a 3cell version of the same. Given the usual battery life scenarios, expect the 6 cel version to last over around 5-6 hours of regular use. perhaps some more if used sparingly.
