Europe First to Receive Ion 2-Based Netbook from Asus

Paul Lilly

Asus has gone and shipped off its new Eee PC 1015PN netbook to Europe, the company's first to be built around Nvidia's Ion 2 platform.

Ion 2 gives the 1015PN some pixel pushing punch by way of a GeForce GT218 GPU, and to keep the 6-cell battery from prematurely crapping out when all you're trying to do is surf the Web, the 1015PN also comes with Nvidia's Optimus graphics switching technology.

Other spec include an Intel Atom N475 processor clocked at 1.83GHz, 1GB of DDR3 memory, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Windows 7 Starter.

Most European vendors have the 1015PN listed at around $500.
