Rumors are surfacing that the ASUS Eee PC 1201n – a 12-inch netbook packing the Nvidia ION chip – will be emerging overseas in the coming days and come to the US by some time this fall.
The rumors are coming from a product listing on the website of one Asian retailer. The listing shows some pretty standard specs, such as an Intel Atom N270, 2 GB of RAM, Windows 7 and a higher-resolution screen.
ASUS isn’t likely to chime in about the legitimacy of these rumors, but October’s not far away at all. Once Windows 7 gets out the door, it should be an exciting time for netbooks, and ASUS would be foolish to have no new models ready for the upcoming holiday season.
More details as they arise.
