The webcam on the 1215N comes with a lens cover to provide the users with extra privacy. Consumers can also choose their hard disk to be of 250 GB capacity or 320 GB capacity. The data storage space for 1215N users is further increased by the 500 GB of WebStorage from ASUS on to which files can be stored by a simple drag-and-drop action.
