Asus has officially announced the Eee PC 1225B, a new notebook that rocks a feature set that places it somewhere between an ultraportable and a netbook. The 1225B is fronted by an 11.6-inch display, making it the 12.1-inch 1215B’s smaller brother with the same 1366 x 768 resolution, but with a newer engine with AMD’s Fusion APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) that combines the dual core processor and Radeon discrete graphics for multimedia performance.
The Eee PC 1225B comes in to models, with a standard spec that includes a dual-core 1GHz C60 APU and 2GB of RAM, and a high-end spec that runs on a dual core 1.65GHz E-450APU and up to 4GB memory. Either option comes with a 750GB hard drive, USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 port.
The laptop also packs a 6-cell battery that’s rated to last for 7 hours of wireless action on a full charge into a frame that measures 35mm thick and weighs 3.1 pounds.
As usual, Asus didn’t include pricing details, but it’s set to ship next year in matte gray, red and silver colors.
