A plastic glossy finish, the kind that going to talk about such a computer: the Asus EEE catches fingerprints and smudges like crazy. On a PC 1225C. first look though, the plastic feels like it’s somewhat treated against scratches, it feels more metallic than the plastic on the old Asus EEE PCs used to feel (like on the 1215N, if you remember that one), but this might be just a mirage. This is a close relative to the EEE PC 1225B we tested a couple of weeks ago, but while that one came with The Asus EEE PC 1225C is a bigger Atom powered AMD hardware, this one is built on Intel’s CedarTrail netbook Atom.

  2. 2. February 17, 2012 Asus EEE PC 1225C Reviews , Bigger Atom Powered Netbook and the button are during everyday use. I’ll let you know in my review. Inside, this test unit of mine comes with an Intel Atom N2600 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 320 GB HDD and Windows 7 Home Premium, but to be frank, I’m sur- prised Asus din not squeeze at least a faster N2800 processor in there. I mean, they put the N2600 on their cheapest netbook, the X101CH, they could have put something better here as I’m pretty sure this one is not going to cut it, performance wise. All in all, I knew the 1025C was going to be an un- derpowered mini laptop and I don’t dig the glossy hood and display. However, I was actually expec- ting it to be cheap, but based on what I know right now, I was wrong. The 1225C is expected to land in my country by late March and it’s only going to be about $30 cheaper than the 1225B (the equivalent of $30 here). That would lead to a price tag of $400 -$420 when it reaches the States, and while having that Atom platform inside will ensure long battery life (once again, we’ll see if this proves true or not), I doubt many will turn towards this unit, when for only a bit of extra cash you can get the faster, matte and overall better unit, the Asus 1225B.
