The Eee PC 1201PN is a mid-priced 12.1" netbook from Asus. This is an Ion 2 netbook, with an Intel Pine Trail N450 1.66GHz processor, an improvement over the Diamondville Atom of the previous model, the 1201N. The 1201PN is equipped with NVIDIA's Optimus technology, which rises the NVIDIA graphics processing unit to high levels of graphics performance when called for and switches to more battery power-saving modes the rest of the time. The 1201PN comes with Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, which is fully backward compatible with Bluetooth 1.2. At 3.22 pounds, this netbook weighs in on the light side.
