Asus 1215B-PU17 vs. Asus 1215N-PU27

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone,
as the title suggests, I'm looking for a netbook recommendation.

So far I've gotten two lined up:
The

and the . As the second is less than a month old, it's difficult to find much personal information about it on the net.

Anyone have anything to say?


I plan to stream media to it from my computer, with a possibility of a little gaming sometimes, if at all (tf2, bad company 2, etc), and naturally internet browsing.

Budget is $500.



Thanks!

I'd take the 1215B.

Also, BC2 and TF2 ain't no light gaming.

TF2 is somehow very CPU-intensive these days, and BC2 is by no means a light game.

for those 2....if you even want to run BC2 you'll likely have to lower the resolution to >720p and lowest settings to even run the game at 15-20FPS plus cause BC2 is very CPU intensive at the same time

for the 1215B source games should be no problem.....same for the 1215N, but I won't say the same for BC2

BC2 as mentioned above is by no means a "light game"

In summary:
-Both laptops are the same minus CPU and GPU
-the 1215B has a slightly worse CPU with a just about the same GPU, sometimes better (depending on what software or program you're using to judge this)

depends on weather you want intel or AMD
I would pick AMD, but thats me

Haha I guess I should have used a different word.. by light I meant in frequency of use I probably won't be playing many games, if ever.

Usually I go with Intel.. but you two aren't the first two to tell me to go with the B, I see the N as slight more powerful, plus with a superior battery life, why should I go with the B?

slightly newer I guess
all up to you
in reviews they're pretty much side to side, but IIRC power consumption seems to be better for Fusion

I went with the 1215B today as the E-350 units seems to be getting slighty better reviews than their Atom counterparts, with better battery life. So 1215B gets my vote.

So far I haven't played anything on mine. But various online user reviews TF2 is possible at a decent 25 ~ 30 FPS, so playable.

OP you can judge performance (Fusion E350) from the DM1z review thread somewhere in this forum

otherewise its up to you

I see, alright then would any of you recommend a Lenovo x120e over the 1215b? If I had to choose the b model as opposed to the n, I would rather go with a thinkpad!
