Leaked roadmaps have a knack for turning out to be accurate, it seems. An Asus Eee PC netbook featuring Nvidia Ion integrated graphics has appeared in Chinese e-tail listings, confirming a roadmap we saw late last month.
The Eee PC 1201N indeed has a 12" display with an Atom N270 processor, 2GB of RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a six-cell battery, Windows 7 Home Premium. There's also a 250GB 5,400-RPM hard drive. Our speculation about the display was slightly off, however—instead of 1280x800, Asus has gone with the 1366x768 resolution more commonly found on 11.6" netbooks.
Pcpop.com charges 3,504 yuan for this system, which works out to around $513. For an idea of how prices compare, the same e-tailer offers the Eee PC 1101HA for 2,700 yuan ($395), while Newegg sells it for $419.99. You can probably expect stateside pricing closer to $550 than $513, then.
This listing doesn't tell us anything about a U.S. release schedule, of course. Considering the fact that the Eee PC 1201N comes with Windows 7 Home Premium, though, it may not become available in any locale before Windows 7's official October 22 release. (Thanks to CrunchGear for the link.)
