MojoKid writes “Atom-based netbooks have come a long way since they were first introduced. 7 and 8-inch netbooks are no longer the norm, and availability of 12-inch netbooks is on the rise. The newest member of the Asus Eee PC lineup is the Eee PC 1201N, and it really stands out in the crowd of netbook in terms of specifications. The machine features a 12.1″ HD display, new dual-core Atom 330 CPU, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, Windows 7 Home Premium, an HDMI output and NVIDIA’s Ion chipset with integrated GPU. HotHardware was able to demo the system’s ability to handle more advanced benchmarks, thanks in part to the Ion GPU. It’s also the first netbook they tested that could actually play older 3D titles respectably. You won’t get Crysis running but lighter duty titles can be played back nicely if you tone the details down and lower the resolution. It the 1201N also played back 720p and 1080p content without stuttering, and the dual-core CPU allowed enough headroom to multitask while videos were playing.”
