Summary: For the money, you'll hardly find a better mini laptop these days. The Asus 1215B is solid built, decently beautiful and fast when dealing with the daily tasks, video content or even some lighter games.
Asus 1215N review – powerful EEE PC in a compact sleek body
8 November 2013
Conclusion: In the end, I can say I like this Asus mini laptop. I particularly like that it manages to pack some power, enough for it to act snappy in everyday tasks and run fine my daily applications. Plus, it can handle all kind of video content, self stored or Flash and a bunch of modern games.
Pros: Very good overall build quality, new materials used for the exterior casing, with a smooth matte plastic for the lid cover and a textured plastic for the bottom part, great hardware: Intel Atom D525 1.8 GHz dual core processor, nVIDIA Ion graphics, 4 GB of memory, 320 GB storage, nice Full-size c...
Cons: display and the area around it are still glossy, screen only tilts back to about 120 degrees, keyboard has some flex and some poor picks in terms of layout (only for the European version, US version will be OK), trackpad’s click button is awful

10 July 2011
Excerpt: ASUS’s Eee PC 1215B is the newest player in netbook segment and equipped with AMD’s Fusion Brazos APU (APU is short for Accelerated Processing Unit).

ASUS Eee PC 1215N Review: Atom and Ion, Back Together Again
25 April 2011
Excerpt: You don’t hear much about Atom these days. It’s still there, still kicking, still being stuffed inside an endless stream of netbooks. Yet it’s also not very exciting, and hasn’t created much buzz. This isn’t a case of a journalistic blind spot; Atom just hasn't been update.
Conclusion: The 1215 is difficult to classify, and thus even more difficult to conclude on. While most people label it a netbook, I wouldn’t strictly call it so—I tend to define netbooks as anything with a 10” screen running Atom at a sub-$400 price point.
