A new netbook in Asus’s Eee PC lineup has been revealed through a product page on the Taiwanese manufacturer’s global website. It is the Eee PC 1201K and it will run on an AMD Geode 1.4 GHz NX 1750 processor and an SiS chipset. This is a variant of the platform that was supposed to be used in the original OLPC XO-1 project. The netbook packs 1 GB of RAM, storage capacity between 160 GB and 320 GB and comes preloaded with Windows XP Home Edition.

The Eee PC 1201K has an LED-backlit 12.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. It has 802.11 b/g/n WiFi support and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. Also present are two USB 2.0 ports, 1 Ethernet port, 1 VGA out, a multi-format memory card reader and a 0.3 megapixel webcam.

The whole netbook measures 296 x 208 x 33.3mm at its thickest and weighs around 1.46 kg inclusive of the 6-cell battery. The Asus EeePC 1201K will be available in black or silver colors when it ships at an undisclosed date with an as yet unknown pricetag.
