Good news for fans of AMD processors, Asus was seen showing off the AMD powered Eee PC 1201T recently which sports an Athlon Neo mobile processor instead of the almost ubiquitous Intel Atom processor powering most netbooks. The AMD powered 12″ netbook will reportedly be able to handle streaming 1080P video and other high definition content thanks to an AMD Radeon 3200 GPU which will help it compete with the current crop of ION powered netbooks.
Pricing and availability aren’t known but given that it shares many of the same specs, aside from the processor, as the Asus Eee PC 1201HA that just went on sale in the U.S. it’s possible that we’ll see it for around the $330. No operating systems is identified, but the screen of the demo on NotebookItalia looks like Windows 7 starter, which some users will prefer over XP which is standard on the 1201HA model.
More specs are below the image.
