ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1215N-PU17-RD 12.1-Inch Netbook

Asus has upgraded both the processor and the graphics technology for the ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1215N-PU17-RD Netbook. The processor is the desktop grade Intel D525 1.8 GHz dual-core processor, a step-up from the dual core Atom 330s powering the initial 1201N. While I would’ve liked to see Intel’s new N550 dual core Atom processors on the ASUS Eee PC Seashell 1215N-PU17-RD Netbook instead, the D525s are more than sufficient. I suspect that Asus will release their next version of the 12XXN series with some sort of new lower power dual core processor and graphics technology.

Note, the N550 processors are a new generation of 1.5 GHz low power dual core processors, and suffice it to say, the days of single core N450 type processors are quickly disappearing. Asus has announced a 1215P netbook, which is equipped with the N550 but NO Nvidia ION2 technology, and relies solely on Intel’s GMA3150 integrated graphics solution, which is increasingly antiquated when used as a standalone. The 1215P is intended as an upgraded to the previously poorly received 1201PN, and while it will have an improved battery life, it will have difficulty handling games and high definition 1080P media.
