Asus Eee PC 1201N Netbook Review »

The netbook vs. tablet PC debate continues with the Asus Eee PC 1201N. Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn review this netbook that weighs 3.2 lbs, measures only 1.3" thick and packs 2 gigs of RAM, all for $475.

What You Need to Know

  • This netbook is just a bit heavier and thicker than the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3t we reviewed yesterday.
  • It doesn't necessarily feel too big.
  • It practically has no battery bulge.
  • Since it is a 12” netbook rather than the 10” from yesterday, it has a little more room for everything, like the keyboard, touchpad, and screen.
  • The keys are widely spaced and raised, so it's immediately intuitive to type on.
  • The touchpad has a different texture than the rest of the netbook, separated mouse clicks, and it's multi-touch.
  • Even though it doesn't have a touch screen, the screen looks great and has a better resolution than the Lenovo.
  • It has a dual-core Atom processor, and you can add up to 8 GB of RAM (ours has 2 GB).
  • Boot-up time is pretty good at 45 seconds from power on to launching a browser.
  • Our normal PCMark Vantage tests were a little slower than we'd want, but it wasn't too much of an issue.
  • You can even run Team Fortress 2 at medium quality.


  • $475
