The Asus 1215T is yet another netbook with 12.1 inch screen but features 1.7GHz Neo processor and ATi HD 4250 graphics card. In these tests, the GPU is fully capable of rendering 1080p HD video playback.
It has a black piano finish around the 12-inch bezel that attracts a lot of fingerprints, but since this is not a touchscreen device, you would not be touching those areas a lot. I loved its two tone black-on-silver finish but was disappointed to see average built quality. Just don't expect Apple-like built quality here. Its screen bezel also has a 1.3 mega pixel webcam with a slider cover to protect it from dust.
Coming to its keyboard, important keys like enter key are smaller in size compared to Asus Eee PC 1201T - its predecessor. I had no problems using its touchpad, but the single bar below the touchpad requires a firm press in order to register a 'click'.
Performance wise, it is much better than most of the single core Atom notebooks out there with GMA 3150 graphics. It comes with an AMD Neo II K125 processor and ATi Radeon HD 4250 HD graphics which are certainly better than the Atom and GMA 3150 combo. It also comes with 320GB HDD, 2GB RAM, VGA port and 3 USB ports along with an HDMI port. My netbook came preloaded with ExpressGate - a quick boot Linux OS. Fortunately, Asus has made Windows 7 drivers available on their website. I installed the basic version of Windows 7 and did not experience any problems.
Now, here is a downside of having too much power in a netbook - poor battery life. It delivered 3.5 hours in my YouTube video test and in normal web surfying it gave me around 4.5 hours. This is okay for me, but may not be enough for the netbook-ers that are used to 10 plus hours of runtime. Asus Eee PC 1215T is priced at 400 dollars, which is around 50-60 dollar expensive than the Atom powered 10-inch netbooks. Even though its built quality is not exceptional, it certainly has more power than the 10-inchers.
