Asus Eee PC 1201K uses AMD Geode NX1750 CPU

I remember sitting in a meeting with AMD folks at CES a couple years back when netbooks were just getting popular and thinking they would be eating their words when they told me they weren't going to offer netbook hardware. Today we have a new netbook from Asus called the Eee 1201K that uses that AMD netbook processor they didn't want to offer a few years back.

The processor inside the new Eee is the AMD Geode NX1750 and the rig comes with 1GB of DDR1 RAM and can be fitted with optional Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. The machine can be fitted with 160GB, 250GB, or 320GB HDDs and it has a built-in 0.3MP webcam.

Power for the little machine comes from a 6-cell Li-ion battery promising 2 hours of run time per charge. That run time is a bit scary if the runtime is as inflated as manufacturers normally claim. The netbook has a larger screen than you normally find on Intel machines at 12.1-inches and it has a 1366 x 768 resolution. Pricing is unknown at this time.
