Asus Eee PC 1201PN

CNET
31 October 2010
  • Summary: Touting the Asus Eee PC 1201PN as the first next-gen Nvidia Ion Netbook is a bit misleading, since it offers single-core Atom performance, with no automatic graphics switching in an expensive package that underperforms its predecessor.
  • Pros: Comfortable keyboard, good screen and speakers; Ion processor offers some graphics and performance gains.
  • Cons: Full laptops can be had for the same price; streaming video and gaming are hit-and-miss with this single-core Atom/next-gen Ion configuration.

Review Asus Eee PC 1201N Ion-Notebook

Notebookcheck
28 October 2010
  • Conclusion: The Asus Eee PC 1201N's most perceptible advantage for the user will likely be its gain in size . On the one hand, this has an effect on the input devices that now almost have the size of fully functional office devices , as well as on the display that provides for a reasonable work environment with a screen size of more than 30 centimeters .
  • Pros: Attractive case, Solid workmanship, HDMI port, 3x USB, Fully functional keyboard, 12 inch display with HD resolution bids a good overview, Good CPU and GPU performance data, Gaming suitable with restrictions, Low case heating, The size.  12 inches bids a significant additional value in view of display and input devices and the netbook remains to be very mobile, anyway.
  • Cons: Smudge susceptible high gloss surfaces, Average VGA quality, Keyboard has clattery areas, Average display brightness and glare surface prevent outdoor use, Always present fan, A version with an integrated UMTS, at least until the official statement of specifications and model alternatives. Actually a must in mobile devices: a matt and luminous display for outdoor use.

  • Pros: Dual-core Atom processor, solid gaming graphics for a Netbook, large screen, affordable for its features.
  • Cons: Awkward touch pad, mediocre battery life.

Tech2

  • Excerpt: It’s raining netbooks all this week on tech2, and to kickstart the reviews, we have a brand new model by Asus, and let me add straightaway that this one is not just another ‘me too’ in the market. It’s got a larger (slightly) screen and graphics powered by Nvidia Ion, so let's get straight to the dissection routine.

Asus Eee PC 1201PN Review

LAPTOP Magazine
21 June 2010
  • Summary: Asus and Nvidia deserve credit for improving on on the best 12-inch multimedia netbook. For $499, the Eee PC 1201PN offers longer battery life and better graphics performance than its predecessor. However, this system's CPU often feels like a bottleneck compared to the 1201N's dual-core CPU, as we often had to wait for that Windows 7 circle to stop spinning. We also want Asus to banish its stiff touch button in favor of something more comfortable.
