Congo arrives to the Eee PC.
We've always been of the opinion that anything over 10-inches is more of a low-powered notebook than it is a netbook -- so Asus' decision to call its 12.1-inch Eee 1201AH a netbook is already a bit of a stretch in our books. However, the addition of AMD's 1.6GHz Congo MV40 processor, along with the RS780MN chipset and ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics, means that line between netbook and low-powered notebook is even blurrier.
As far as connectivity goes, there's VGA out, three USB 2.0, ethernet, a multi-format memory card reader, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. According to Slashgear, the whole thing weighs in at 1.46kg while measuring 296 x 208 x 27.3-33.3 mm including the standard 6-cell battery.
Pricing and release date have yet to be revealed, but we'll let you know!
