ASUS Eee PC 1225B inbound

ASUS has made the Eee PC 1225B with AMD Fusion APUs official. The new ultraportable-netbook crossover centres on an 11.6-inch display, which is slightly smaller than its 12.1-inch 1215B predecessor. Resolution, however, remains at 1366x768 pixels resulting in a sharper image thanks to the increased pixel density of the new display.

There are two AMD APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) to choose from with the dual-core E450 clocked at 1.65GHz and the dual-core C60 clocked at 1GHz options. 2GB of RAM is standard, although this can be upgraded to 4GB. The new chassis is slightly thinner than the outgoing model at 35mm versus 38mm for the outgoing model. Capacity is also up from 500GB to 750GB, while new USB 3.0 ports have been added, with one legacy USB 2.0 port retained.

The device weighs in at 3.1 pounds, which includes a 6-cell 56Wh battery pack good for 7 hours of wireless productivity. When it ships in the new year, the ASUS Eee PC 1225B will be available in matte gray, red and silver. No pricing was available at the time of writing. [via Laptoping]
