Asus keeps them coming today at CES and introduced the 12.1 inch Asus 1225C netbook, a while after the computer was spotted on some online stores and its manual was briefly available on the company’s website.
Basically, the 1225C is the big brother of the 1025C, as it sports the same Cedar Trail hardware, but has a bigger display.
The 1225C comes with either an N2600 or a 2800 CPU, and rocks integrated HD graphics. Playing 720p content won’t be a problem on the 1225C, as the netbook can even handle Blu Ray 2.0 files. The 12 incher comes with a 1366 x 768 display, which should be good enough to display HD clips properly, but you also have an HDMI port on the side if you want to enjoy the viewing on a more accomplished display.
Otherwise, the setup is pretty standard for a netbook in this category, as it comes with 2 GB of RAM and an HDD with either 250 or 500 GB of capacity. Connectivity wise, you have WiFi and optional Bluetooth 3.0, while ports include USB 3.0 and card reader.
There’s also a 0.3 MP webcam, while the OS is Windows 7 Home Premium. There’s no asking price associated with this one yet, but we should get some info about pricing pretty soon, as the netbook is due to hit the market in the first half of 2012.
Besides the 1225C, Asus introduced the 1225B as well, which is pretty similar with the 1225C, but runs on Fusion hardware, namely the E-450 dual core CPU which comes with built in HD graphics.
The 1225C has an aluminum body and feels quite solid, actually looking a little an ultrabook- but hey, which device doesn’t want that right now, right? That’s all we have for now, but you can feast your eyes with our hands on video bellow. Enjoy.
