Asus Fast Netbook 1201N

Best Netbook Deals - Fastest Netbook Computer - Asus Eee PC 1201N

UPDATE : In July 2010 the Eee PC1201N was chosen by CNET UK as the number two in the top ten netbooks available, with the Samsung N210 as the best, in our opinion however the Eee PC 1201N should have been awarded the number one spot due to the fact that it is sold with Windows 7 Home Premium installed as standard. Netbooks with Windows 7 Starter Edition are at a serious disadvantage - and really cannot be considered as good as netbooks with Windows 7 Home Premium - see here for the reasons why Windows 7 Home Premium

Asus Eee PC1201NIf you're looking for a fast netbook or even what may be the fastest netbook computer available then take a look at the Asus Eee PC 1201N multimedia netbook, which is fitted with a twin-core Intel processor and Nvidia Ion graphics. This makes the 1201N one of the fastest netbooks around along with the Acer Ferrari netbook  and one of the first with decent processing power and the possibility of running complex 3D graphics, you can even run games on it. Amazon are offering a great deal at the moment that has Windows 7 Home Premium loaded - the Windows 7 Starter is really not a good idea for netbooks.

Most netbook computers use an Intel N270 or N280 CPU, but with the 1201N Asus have opted for a dual-core Intel Atom 330 each of which runs at 1.6GHz.

Asus say that the Nvidia Ion graphics will allow you to watch streaming 1080p videos on YouTube "as proficiently as a high-end desktop PC". You can also use it to play games such as Call of Duty 4, modest resolutions and with low detail settings, if you must, but netbooks are not really made for playing games on, even the fastest netbook available.

The screen on the 1210N is a 12.1", LED-backlit 1,366x768-pixel display.

It is sold with 750GB of "hybrid storage" i.e. 250GB internal hard drive and 500GB of online WebStorage, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, a 0.3-megapixel webcam, HDMI video out so you can plug it in to a flat panel TV, and a six-cell, 63Wh - 5 hour battery.
