Best netbook: top 14 in the world today

Asus eee pc 1215n


13. Asus Eee PC 1215N - £430


With enhanced graphics and a dual-core processor, the Eee PC 1215N is aimed at people looking for a mix of portability and performance.

However, the Eee PC 1215N also comes with a rather heady price tag of £430. So what exactly do you get for your extra notes?

Well, quite a lot, as it happens. Most obvious is the display, which is larger than what you'll find on most netbooks at 12 inches. It also comes with a native 1,366 x 768-pixel resolution, which means there's not only more room on your Windows desktop compared to the 1,024 x 600 resolution found on most 10-inch netbooks, but that it's also capable of displaying 720p HD video.

The D525 processor powering the Eee PC 1215N has two cores at its disposal. This means it's far more capable in terms of multitasking. A total of 2GB of DDR3 memory is supplied too, which is double that of most netbooks and helps Windows 7 tick along that bit smoother.

If you're after something small and light, and find the current crop of netbooks don't quite meet your power expectations, the Eee PC 1215N would be a good choice.
