Asus 1215N - simply the best netbook you can buy

  • Excerpt: I was super exicted to see ASUS finally put out a dual core netbook with the new Nvidia ION2 graphics card in it - I just purchased this about 3 weeks ago, and I am loving every minute I have with this machine! First note - this is NOT a laptop!  Do not believe that it is going to do everything your current mainstream laptop can do - it is designed for the ultraportable market, and it performs as such.

Great performance

  • Excerpt: Excellent overclocking abilities using SETFSB and Nvidia tools software. Out of the box performance in 3D Mark 2006 = 2650 3D Marks. With an OC'd CPU at 2.1 ghz and video card bumped up faster than GeForce 305M clock settings my 3D Marks are now at 3225. CPU marks went up from 775 to > 1100 OC'd to 2.1 ghz. BIG NEGATIVE- Stock 250 gb HDD is SLOW. Even worse, Asus did not make the HDD accessible from the bottom of the laptop.

Great Netbook!

  • Excerpt: Coming from a first generation macbook, I am extremely impressed with how this netbook runs. It can play most games at low settings and the battery life is ~5-6 hours with moderate to light use. Fast, great battery life, can run several VM's at the same time. AR-9285 atheros wifi chipset supports injection, runs backtrack nicely, Ubuntu 10.4 runs fast, however the nvidia card is always on cutting battery life. There is a vgaswitheroo app but haven't tried it.

Works as expected

  • Excerpt: This laptop has it all and does not feel like a netbook in any sense other than the size. The display is crystal clear, no dead pixels, and great viewing angles. Beautiful case, Matte finish on the lid is very classy looking. This system really straddles that line between netbook and full laptop. The NEO 2 processor is reasonably fast and allows for snappy performance and the ATI video adapter is powerful enough for some 3D gaming.

great netbook

  • Excerpt: This netbook uses AMD Chipset and Nvidia mobile graphics, right off the bat you notice a difference in speed vs other netbooks and the machine is able to handle HD video no problem. Battery life averages around 4 hours and the screen is gorgeous. The build quality is pretty decent too the hinge is solid and the matte black prevents any smudges on the case cover. Also, I never realized how useful it is to have an HDMI out.

  • Excerpt: Overall it does what I need it to do. It just doesn't seem to be as responsive as my other eeepc with the Atom processor.

  • Excerpt: One reason I bought this particular unit is as an eventual replacement for my Dell X1 that has kitchen duty. I will either buy an HP TouchSmart desktop or 14" Lenovo Edge laptop to replace the Asus.

Asus 1215N Eee PC netbook

Brock, REVIEW STREAM
22 April 2011
  • Excerpt: A few days ago, a friend asked me to recommend a laptop at a good price and well built. And I remembered about the 1215N Eee PC from Asus , a model that has been sitting on my couch for two days waiting for an honest review, but I managed somehow to forget about it. It is a 12.1-inch mini laptop - something neither too small nor too large.

Asus EEE PC 1215T Laptop

poyayan, REVIEW STREAM

  • Excerpt: Is it a laptop or a netbook? Frankly, after weeks of owning an Asus EEE PC 1215T, I’m still not quite sure. One thing I’m certain about is that this portable piece of technology simply kicks butt. See, when I opted to upgrade from my old Compaq a month or so back, I still wasn’t decided on whether to get a full-fledged netbook or get a more expensive but better-performing 12-inch hybrid.

  • Summary: So much worse than my expectation. Horrible drivers make the ION2 graphics almost worthless. After trying more driver versions than I can remember, I had to settle with an outdated version from the ASUS website. When playing any game, the GPU will never use more than 50% of available clock/mem meaning that performance is poor. Even games like AOM or CS:S are unplayable. Hundreds of topics open on NVIDIA forums explaining performance issues and yet none of them addressed.
