Asus' 12.1-inch Netbook Arrives in the U.S, AMD Congo and Nvidia Ion Versions Coming

The 12.1-inch Eee PC 1201HA just landed at Best Buy for $330, but that model's 1.33GHz Atom Z520 CPU and integrated graphics won't match the upcoming Nvidia Ion-powered 1201N version, or the AMD Congo-based 1201T.

As mentioned, the 1201N will be the first Eee PC with Nvidia Ion graphics when it arrives in December for about $500. It'll include 2GB RAM, 250GB hard disk, and HDMI out.

And we've just learned that Asus is also planning a version with AMD's 1.6GHz Congo MV40 processor and ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics. That means 1080p video support. No word yet on pricing or availability, but it can't be that far off. We'll fill you in as we learn more. [SlashGear]
