Specifications and details of the new Asus Eee PC 1225B AMD-powered ultraportable notebook have been published on Asustek’s website.
The Eee PC 1225B has a 11.6-inch display, which is smaller than on its precursor, the 12.1-inch 1215B. However, the screen resolution remained the same – 1366×768 pixels. The 1225B has newer AMD Fusion chips, when compared to the 1215B. These are the higher-end E-450 and lower-end C-60 Accelerated Processing Units, both with dual CPU cores and Radeon integrated graphics.
Besides the new processors and new chassis design with a tickness of 35mm versus previous 38mm, other significant changes in the notebook are increased maximum hard drive capacity to 750GB, up from 500GB, as well as inclusion of two USB 3.0 ports besides an old USB 2.0 connector.
According to the notebook’s product page, there’s also a specs downgrade in the new model. The battery life with the 6-Cell 56Wh unit is rated at seven hours, while the previous model is claimed to provide eight hours of run time with the same capacity battery.
