Eee PC 1201PN not getting Optimus, 1215N is

New information has surfaced from Italy regarding two upcoming ASUS Eee PC series netbooks, the 1201PN and 1215N. The 1201PN uses a 12.1-inch, 720p display but rumors if it bringing NVIDIA's Optimus tech in its second-generation Ion platform have now been dispelled. According to NVIDIA, the 1201PN will launch without Optimus, but a later iteration of the model will get the technology along with a dual-core CPU.

Optimus allows devices to switch from the integrated Intel graphics processors to NVIDIA's dedicated Ion chipset depending on performance or power-saving needs, all without having to log out or change settings.

The 1215N will get Optimus and a new, dual-core Atom, the N500.

The 1201PN is said to launch in May, while the 1215N is due for a June release. Prices for either have not been announced. [via SlashGear]
