When I first reviewed the Asus 1201N in January 2010 (see my Amazon review for that netbook), I stated that it was the best netbook on the market. A lot of time (in the consumer electronics world) has passed since that review, and Asus has released the upgrade to the 1201N, in the form of the 1215N. Does the 1215N take the crown from the 1201N, and is the 1215N the best netbook available today (September 2010) on the market?

In a word, YES! The major gripe about the 1201N was of course the limited battery life, approximately 3.5 hours on average. Even though I primarily used my 1201N near an electrical outlet, there were times when I had to go portable with it, and the short battery life was painfully insufficient. Asus has upgraded both the processor and the graphics technology for the 1215N. The processor is the desktop grade Intel D525 1.8 GHz dual-core processor, a step-up from the dual core Atom 330s powering the initial 1201N. While I would've liked to see Intel's new N550 dual core Atom processors on the 1215N instead, the D525s are more than sufficient. I suspect that Asus will release their next version of the 12XXN series with some sort of new lower power dual core processor and graphics technology.

Note, the N550 processors are a new generation of 1.5 GHz low power dual core processors, and suffice it to say, the days of single core N450 type processors are quickly disappearing. Asus has announced a 1215P netbook, which is equipped with the N550 but NO Nvidia ION2 technology, and relies solely on Intel's GMA3150 integrated graphics solution, which is increasingly antiquated when used as a standalone.

I can tell you that much of my day is spent fixing someone else's computer or computer problems. So when it comes time to make a computer purchase for myself, I spend countless hours going over the specs, prices, and value of different netbooks and ultraportable laptops. I read every comment (especially the negative ones) and poured over reviews and sites providing detailed information. I enjoy playing games, but I know the limitations of this souped-up netbook. My goal was to buy the best netbook that gave me the most bang for the buck. So that means I'm not going to just waste my money and overspend on some Alienware M11x gaming laptop. I did not want to spend much money so after deciding this was the netbook for me, I waited for it to go on sale during Black Friday for $423.54 and was able to pick up the silver version which is better than the black version due to how easy it is to get finger prints and smudges on the black netbook. Also, if it did not go on sale, you wouldn't be reading this review right now. There are a lot of cons for this netbook (which I will detail later), but at that price point, I was willing to overlook it.

Now, there were a few ultraportable laptops that were better suited for playing the latest games, but they were either a few hundred dollars more than the ASUS 1215N, weighed a few more pounds, had less battery life, and/or had a smaller screen. What I really liked about the ASUS 1215N (besides the price I got it for ;) ) was that it had a large screen compared to the other netbooks, it still weighed less than the ultraportable laptops, and has a better CPU and GPU than most of the other netbooks that are similarly priced.

Now for the Cons, starting with what scares me the most:

The horrible power plug design.

First let me preface that I DO own this product and I will actually put forth my review after this paragraph.

Before I get started, if you're looking at this computer make sure you're getting it for the right reasons. This is NOT a replacement/main computer. Whether netbooks can be or not isn't the point. The current built-in limitations from Intel make it so that their philosophy is essentially the rule. They are the company at "fault" and when looking at what Asus has done with what Intel has allowed, this really is a great computer. A lot of the more critical reviews seem to expect a bit more out of this than what it's advertised for. That said, it's very hard to not judge this as a normal laptop. The combination of the potential power of the machine, along with its form factor, have it walk the line between netbook and ultra portable. And if you know this going in, I feel like you'll be more than satisfied.

My reason for buying this netbook was to find something to use in class for basic typing, with at least a 12" screen (but not bigger than 13.3"), decent battery life, the potential to play 720p movies, and maybe some extra power left over. As a PC gamer, I bought another Asus laptop (the really big one) for gaming, but as a student that laptop proved too unwieldy for class/transport. Ultraportables are frankly too expensive for students as a back up computer, the iPad was overpriced for the hard ware (or conversely under spec'd for the price, since 500 was my limit). Here's a break down of the pro's and con's from my viewpoint, after having used it for about a week.

Pro's

Battery life - about 6 hours is actually accurate, with wireless on and the display at about 50% I get around 5:30 to 5:00 hours.
