ASUS Eee PC 1215N Netbook Gets Atom D510 Processor and USB 3.0

The newly released ASUS Eee PC 1215N netbook is a pretty impressive powerhouse; it’s got brand new components — at least newer and better components than that of standard netbooks — but it’s also priced at a similar level as the standard notebook… cringe.

The 12″ (1366×769 resolution) Eee PC 1215N will be powered by a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom D510 processor, which is more geared towards nettops rather than netbooks or notebooks.  Power consumption will be at 13W.  The 1215N also comes with GMA 3150 integrated graphics (but unfortunately lacks high-def capabilities), which consists of Nvidia ION graphics with Optimus technology that allows users to quickly switch between on-board and discrete graphics.

The ASUS Eee PC 1215N will also feature two SuperSpeed USB ports, or USB 3.0 ports, as well as a regular USB 2.0 port on the opposite side of the netbook.  It’s also rumored that this particular Eee PC will use AMedia’s USB 3.0 host silicon rather than those from NEC.

Pricing for this ASUS powerhouse will be around $500-$600.
