By on March 9, 2011, 9:00 AM
Asus is set to release a couple of new netbooks based on the well-received AMD Brazos platform, which enables better-than-Atom graphics and processing performance in the same affordable netbook package. Starting at just $380, the 12.1-inch ASUS Eee PC 1215B will come in two different configurations, with the base model featuring a 1GHz AMD C50 dual core processor, Radeon HD 6250 graphics, 1GB RAM and 250GB hard drive.

The other version will have a 1.6-GHz AMD E350 processor, Radeon HD 6315 graphics, 2 GB RAM (expandable to 4GB) and a 320GB hard drive for $450. Meanwhile, a more affordable Eee PC 1015B features a 10-inch display, a single core AMD C-30, Radeon HD 6250 graphics with support for 1080p HD video playback and will cost $290 at launch.


Both the 1215B and 1015B come equipped with a range of ports and connectivity options such as 802.11n Wi-Fi, HDMI output, USB 3.0 and Bluetooth 3.0. The 10-inch model will be available in black, white, blue and red colors, while the 12-inch notebooks will come in black, silver, or red. All models will reportedly arrive in the U.S. this April.

I still don't understand why they cant just throw consumers a bone and standardize 2GB of RAM already. I've read many reviews on different netbooks and most of the time people have to upgrade to at least 2GB RAM to actually enjoy the device. And now at $380 + $20-$30 which is about $410, people might as well invest in a $440 Lenovo X120e with an E350 and get much better hardware.
