1. 1201PN provides better graphic performance and power arrangements; however, the processor is the weakest part of this netbook. I have no idea why ASUS didn't choose Atom D510 or D525 because both processor Intel costs are similar as N450, but D510 or D525 performance is better than N450.
From Processor point of view,
ASUS EEE PC 1201N with Atom 330 CPU benchmark score (Passmark) is 633, but Atom N450 CPU benchmark score is only 320. It has huge difference. (Also, Atom N270 benchmark score is 304. The improvements between Atom N270 and N450 are Intel integrated graphic solution and CPU plus chipset total power consumption)
1201N still has big laggy during mass battle when I play Dragon Age Origins (1366x768) and Mass Effect 2 (800x600).
As you know, gaming requires both computing power and graphic performance.
In addition, I still feel not enough when I work with certain size Excel or Power Point files using 1201N (Atom 330)
I would say that Atom 330 is acceptable, but I am not sure how N450 is able to deal with gaming and work.
2. ION 2 (GT218m) has 16 cores, and ION also has 16 core. Yes, nm improvement did help, but not much. (It's around 30% improvement per current internet reviews) The best thing is that ION is a chipset, but ION 2 is GPU, so ION 2 keeps Intel GMA3150. 1201PN have 2 different graphic solutions for swapping and it does help to keep this netbook running longer than pervious 1201N when 1201PN is not dealing with heavy graphic work or gaming.

I received it quickly and in perfect "like new" condition, and even with a system restore CD provided by the vendor.
Out of my many netbook purchases, this has been the best one.

I bought this computer three years ago and it's still running strong. It's not the fastest computer, but it does the job. Original battery still good.Published on May 20, 2013 by Henry Voris
This machine is mostly what's my expectations were -- tiny, light, decent battery (4+ hours), reasonable graphics performance with ION2. Read morePublished on January 2, 2011 by K. Weng
i can constantly feel the warm air blown from the cpu vent even after just booting up. the cpu area runs VERY warm constantly. even though it's a dual core atom, it runs very slow. Read morePublished on December 8, 2010 by M. Luu
