ASUS’ Fusion-based 1015b and 1215b Price and Availability

Posted on 06 March 2011 by

If you’re looking at the top end of the netbook sector for an upgrade on your 2-year old netbook and thinking about stepping out of the Intel netbook restrictions for screen res, memory and operating system you’ve probably heard about the AMD Fusion-based EeePCs which we saw and tested at CeBIT last week.

The Eee PC 1015b offers a single or dual-core C-series (C-30 or C-50) processor while the Eee PC 1215b offers the C-50 or the 1.6Ghz 18W TDP version, the E-350 which should blow away all Intel Atom options including the nettop-focused D525 variant. Official weight for the 1015b is a reasonable 1.3KG but we’re estimating the 1215b at a rather heavy 1.5KG with its 6-cell battery.

The only thing missing was the price and availability but for US markets, we’ve now got that information through the Asus Campus Life Blog. According to them, the Eee PC 1015B (with C-30, 1GB, 250GB HDD) will be available for just $289.99 and the 1215b with the C-50 (and the same RAM, HDD) for $379.99. The 1215b with the E350 will come with a larger 320GB HDD and 2GB RAM for $449 making it very competitive with other non-Atom solutions.

ASUS EeePC 1215b specifications are here and you can check out some thoughts and a performance test here.

Availability (we assume U.S.) –

Look for these Netbooks in April. 10-inch models will be available white, black, blue, and red. 12-inch models will be available in black, silver, and red.

We will be!

    Still no prising for the c-50 1015B?

  8. Chippy says:

    Not from that source but I guess you can get an idea of where it would sit between the two c-range devices.

  9. Luvfeld says:

    dont forget the HP dm1z is also $450 US!

    it would be great too see a comparison between these 2, they both represent the best Fusion has to offer right now on the highend.

  10. tesaguy/freakyfred_ says:

    Does the HP DM1Z come to Germany/Europe? I thought it is only available in the usa.
    Same for the Lenovo X120e
