ASUS Eee PC 1215B Netbook Review (AMD Fusion Brazos APU)
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).

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.
