Asus 1215B AMD E-350 Netbook

Reading the review below will help you find out whether the Asus 1215B managed to live up to the expectations or not, as I will speak thoroughly about each important aspect of this device.

Once again, I do have to say that this is yet a sample unit and although the guys at Asus ensured us it’s very close to the final version that will be available in stores soon, take the results with grain and salt (as some aspects can be improved on the final release).

The specs

First, let’s take a quick look at the specs to see what we can expect from this Asus 1215B 12 incher:

* 12.1 inch LED backlit display, 1366 x 768 px resolution, glossy
* AMD Brazos APU with AMD E-350 dual core processor and integrated AMD graphics
* 4 GB DDR3 memory
* 320 GB hard-drive
* Wireless N, Bluetooth 3.0, Gigabit LAN
* one USB 2.0 slot and two USB 3.0 slots, VGA, HDMI, headphone/mic, card-reader, webcam
* Windows 7 Home Premium OS
* 6 Cell 5200 mAh 56 Wh battery
* measures 11.6 x 8 x 1.5 inches
* weighs 3.2 pounds

Design and exterior

The 1215B inherits the seashell body shape from the 1215N. In fact, on the outside, both these devices are identical. Lid is covered in smooth rubbery matte plastic while the bottom comes with a textured finish. The matte plastic especially feels really nice and looks good, although smudges and fingerprints are visible on this black finish we had on our desks.
