12-inch Asus Eee Netbook Running on Nvidia Ion

Asus hasn't officially announced an Ion-infused Eee PC that we know of, which is why it was quite surprising to see (via Liliputing) one Chinese website display a product page for an Eee PC 1201N with a 12-inch display, 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU and Nvidia Ion graphics.

Now, we'll leave out the bit about how we're completely against anything with a display over 10-inches (maybe we can stretch to 11-inches) that claims to be a netbook and instead express our enthusiasm for an Eee PC with Ion graphics. Pretty neat, huh?

Specs-wise you're looking at a 12-inch widescreen HD display (1366 x 768), 2 GB of RAM, 250 GB hard drive, Nvidia's GeForce 9400M and of course, Intel's Atom N270 (which clocks in at 1.6 GHz). Liliputing tentatively reports 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, a VGA port, USB, audio I/O, and a 6 cell, 5200mAh battery that’s capable of up to 11 hours of run time too.

What say ye?

    I've helped a couple friends pick out their netbooks, but haven't bought one myself. This might finally be the one that I buy... if the price is right. An SSD larger than 8GB would be preferable, but I'm guessing since it's Ion Asus figures people will want more room to rip their movies etc
