It's been more than two years since their inception, but the applications of netbooks were quite modest till recently. Internet, office productivity and non-HD media playback was something netbooks serviced with ease. But it is only human to expect more and more out of something, and these small wonders share the same fate.
The 10-inch screen would eventually prove too small for some. With the popularity of HD content, it was expected that these paltry-powered machines come at par with modern-day requirements. However, netbooks were originally popular mainly for one reason - affordability. This makes it quite a task for PC makers to add more horsepower to the internals without sacrificing on the lucrative pricing.
Set your eyes on the Asus Eee PC 1201T. An evolved netbook, the 1201T boasts a bigger 12-inch screen with a higher resolution. It's got ATI Radeon graphics that should serve better than Intel's on-board supplements. It still maintains a netbook's sleek dimensions and more importantly, its price. But corners have to be cut somewhere to achieve this right? So what does the 1201T sacrifice in order to pull such a feat? Read on to find out.
