ASUS Rolls Out the Eee PC R051BX AMD-powered Netbook

Without making much noise ASUS has made available, in Germany at least, a new, Fusion-flavored (or should we say heterogeneous-heavy?) Eee PC, the 10.1-inch R051BX. Available in black (but coming soon in white), this netbook weights 1.17 kg, and has an LED-backlit (1024 x 600) display, an AMD C-50 (dual x86 cores @ 1.0 GHz, Radeon HD 6250 graphics) APU, 1 GB of RAM, a 320 GB hard drive, and a 2,200 mAh battery.

The Eee PC R051BX has Windows 7 Starter pre-installed and costs 259 Euro.

What i hate the most is the way how ASUS is naming the netbooks. The numbering scheme is just ridiculous and i never have any idea what i'm looking at by just looking at the names.

I'm not a fan of that resolution, otherwise pretty decent. I don't even mind Win7 Starter on those machines actually.

Why 1024x600? The Acer models are 1280x720.

Ditto, in fact i'm typing this on mine. Just wish i could speed up the graphics. Otherwise a nice nimble netbook (I recommend a ssd!).
the new line of HP DM1 with the E-450 APUs are ludicrously cheap these days. its slightly bigger then 10.1" but you get a bigger screen and you can a fair few games on it.

time for a trade in?

TBH i'm happy with the 522, it does everything I need, just not everything I want ;) It plays Bastion fine, I just wish I could play Borderlands on it. But i've built a new (old) PC to do that.

well Like i said before - Its because I have a total beast in a box at home that i tolerate a 'lower performing' netbook/ultraportable. I used to have a an old 14.1" laptop that weighed as much as some of dell's 15" Inspirons. It was great for quite a few games as it had a fairly low-midrange dedicated graphics card. but as you get older and more mature, you tend to want something different :p obviously the same time can be said about marrages and relationships.

I could be on the road cycling for hours and not really break my shoulders or back doing it because I dont have an extra 2-3kg of weight to lug around with the other stuff but yet i got full internet access when i stop off at a pub for some grub and a pint
