Asus Eee PC 1215N leaks - the new king of netbooks

The Asus Eee PC 1215N may not officially exist, but if the latest bunch of rumours are even close to accurate, it should well be worth holding out for if you’re in the market for a new netbook. Read on to find out why we’re so excited.

We liked the Eee PC 1201N when we tested it late last year: its Ion graphics made fast work of HD video, and a HDMI port meant you could connect it to your flatscreen TV. But the Asus Eee PC 1215N that All About Eee PC says is in the works could blow it out of the water.

The site claims the Asus Eee PC 1215N will pack a new 1.5GHz dual core Atom chip, along with Nvidia’s Ion 2 graphics, which should pump through even HD Flash video with ease. Best of all though, it claims the Asus Eee PC 1215N will use Nvidia’s Optimus tech for automatic graphics card switching, which should seamlessly remove the issue of battery life we had with the 1201N when you’re not using applications that require the GPU.

There’s no official word on when we’ll be seeing the Asus Eee PC 1215N, but the site predicts it should be making an appearance around 13 May. We’ve got fingers and toes crossed.
