Asus Launching Ion 2 Eee PC in April

Today Digitimes reports that Asus has an Ion 2-based EeePC in the works and is lining it up for an April release.

The news comes as more companies choose to deviate from the once ubiquitous Intel chipset and offer products based on ARM processors and Nvidia's Ion platform.

Details about the Ion 2-based EeePC are scant but DT says Asus plans to launch the netbook as a part of its 12-inch lineup (which is still too big to be a netbook if you ask us), along with AMD Congo-based models due out first in February.

No word on price yet but we'll keep you posted on this one.

    Hopefully the ION 2 actually improves performance or reduces the cost of computers running ION gpus and is not a renamed ION 1 since mobile gpus seem to be plagued by naming inflation these days. I will be sure to keep my eyes on the benchmarks and details toms announces in the coming days.

    How much ram? These things need more RAM and a dual core cpu before I buy one.
