ASUS' aluminum Eee PC also getting Ion visuals

An update from Taiwan today indicated that ASUS' new Eee PC 1218 has the option of NVIDIA's Ion graphics as well as detailing more of what's happening with the PC builder's lineup. Now reportedly available on the southeast Asian island, the aluminum-clad netbook is now known to be a high-end model capable of playing 1080p video and some 3D games. Its exact price wasn't mentioned by DigiTimes but should steer closer to the equivalent of $605 in the region.

The Eee PC 1218 is one of ASUS thinnest-known netbooks ever and has an Adamo-like back port layout to keep the system thinner than it would be otherwise. It should still use a modern Atom processor and a 12-inch display.

Mentioned at the same time as the leak is word that ASUS is planning a broader notebook launch on May 13th. The PCs on offer weren't mentioned but would include more bamboo models and "multimedia-enhanced" systems.
