More details on the ASUS Eee PC 1215N are seeping out, ahead of the netbook's expected debut on May 13th, and it's shaping up to be a pretty impressive ultraportable.  According to AllAboutEeePC the 1215N will indeed have the new dual-core 1.5GHz Pine Trail Atom N500 processor expected to hit production in July, together with NVIDIA's Ion GPU.  However, unlike the Eee PC 1215PN, the 1215N will support NVIDIA Optimus for automatic graphics switching.

ASUS Eee PC 1018P caught in wild: USB 3.0 and 18mm thick

Of the new netbook models ASUS unveiled at CeBIT last month, the most interesting has to be the Eee PC 1018P.  Toting not only Intel's latest Pine Trail Atom N455 and N475 processors, the netbook has Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 3.0 connectivity along with the promise of 10hrs runtime.  TechInStyle.tv have got their hands on the 1018P, and the brushed aluminum chassis certainly doesn't let down the high-spec guts.

Sony's upcoming netbook refresh, the Sony VAIO M, has broken cover, and we have to say it looks a little less interesting than the company's previous netbooks.  Suspected to replace the VAIO W range, the VAIO M packs Intel's new Atom N450 1.66GHz processor along with 1GB of DDR2 memory, a 250GB 5,400rpm HDD and Intel GMA 3150 graphics.

Out of all of the leaked ASUS netbooks we saw last week, the most interesting was the Eee PC 1018P.  That's now been officially announced at CeBIT 2010, and the Eee PC 1018P Prime looks even better in photos than it does in renders.  Clad in brushed aluminum, bearing USB 3.0 ports and promising 10hrs of battery life, the 1018P Prime also gets Intel N455 and N475 processors.

Early Ion 2 benchmarks suggest GPU slower than predecessor?

While we grabbed some hands-on time with Acer's Aspire One 532g netbook at MWC 2010 last week, what we didn't think to do was to sneakily attempt to benchmark it.  Being the first netbook to pack NVIDIA's second-gen Ion 2 GPU, the AO532g has many would-be buyers curious as to how it matches up to the first-gen Ion chipset; unfortunately, going by NetbookNews' testing,

You'll have to forgive our disappointment, but when we first caught sight of the LG X20 in its FCC photos we hoped it was a smartbook.  The form-factor certainly looks a lot like previous smartbook prototypes we've seen, but sadly this is another regular netbook, albeit an Intel Atom N450 Pine Trail model.
