Asus gives EeePC an AMD chip

Geode gets a look in
Asus has released an Asus Eee PC with an AMD Geode low-power processor. The Eee PC 1201K, has actually made it into stores, selling in Italy for €329.

The 1201K has Windows XP pre-installed and features a 12.1-inch LED-backlit (1366 x 768) display, a chiclet keyboard, and a 1.4 GHz Geode CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB, hard drive, a 0.3 megapixel webcam, a multi-card reader, Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and, and a 6-cell battery.

Apparently that lot will chew through its batteries in just two hours so we can't see the logic of the beast. It is still the cheapest 12.1-inch Asus netbook found in Europe, but it is competing with Atom based machines running Windows 7 for €335.

Still it is nice that Asus is not going entirely Intel's way, at least in Italy.
