The netbook has an LED-backlit (1024 x 600) screen, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, Radeon HD 4200 integrated graphics, a 0.3 megapixel webcam, LAN, 802.11n WiFi, a card reader, and a 6-cell battery. The Eee PC 1015T can be found here .
"I'm going to buy an AM3+ system with bulldozer CPU + HD 6850 or HD 7850 sometimes during 2011. This system will be more future proof."
You claimed that for Sandy Bridge you needed to buy a new motherboard, inplying no such thing for Bulldozer
"You have to buy a new motherboard, i.e., a new socket LGA-1155.
> The current Intel's sockets LGA-1366 & LGA-1156 are not compatible with LGA-1155."
You were then shown a liar by AlphaVTX and others
"For BD's new power mgmt AMD decided to adapt the socket a bit, making it AM3r2 or AM3+, for which you also need a new board. And for desktop Llano's FM1 socket it's the same. OTOH most CPU buyers get it in some ready built system and there are only a few percent (if not less than 1) upgrading CPUs."
And now you are going to buy something to future proof it?
Do you like being humilliated? Self-pwnd.
I feel sorry for you, I almost want to buy you a iCORE/Fermi rig just so that you can see what you're missing.
Best to wait for Sandy and if you don't mind seeing your new DX11 games looking like old DX9 go with Bart. I wouldn't but that's obvious. Maybe caymen will do tess, but I wouldn't bet on it.
Don't let this board force you into buying anything, we will never know if you sleep with Sandy.
Good luck with that bag of AMD, it's going to get very rough for the AMD faithful.
Just don't mix blind faith with the facts.
<I wouldn't reward Dell either.>
Dell is now changing. Dell has 20 to 30 AMD systems.
Dell needs AMD, and AMD needs Dell.
Actually, I have been having very good luck with my Dell P4 3.2 GHz since 2003. That is six to seven years old now. It is still working very well. I use Linux Mint 9 & Windows XP Professional.
This time I'm determined to buy AMD.
The board bashtards have forced me to buy AMD. These bashtards are damaging Intel. I don't care about Intel any more. AMD systems are as good or better than Intel.
The bashing on this board proves that Intel is scared on AMD. Intel is paying money to these bashtards.
<I don't give business to a thug company like intc. No way! AMD all the way!>
That is my thinking also.
I was going to a Dell or HP system with Phenom II X6 + Asus HD 6850.
I'm going to buy an AM3+ system with bulldozer CPU + HD 6850 or HD 7850 sometimes during 2011. This system will be more future proof.
I have bought two laptops so far, all amd of course. I am thinking of getting another one for myself, and it will be all amd. I don't give business to a thug company like intc. No way! AMD all the way!
Asus Eee PC 1215T Neo-powered netbook goes official
Asus has this week also introduced in Europe the Eee PC 1215T, a 12.1-inch, 1.46kg netbook that is based on an AMD platform, is pre-loaded with Windows 7 Professional 32-bit and comes in three colors - black, silver and red.
The 1215T features an LED backlit (1366 x 768) display, a 1.7 GHz Athlon II Neo K125 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive (plus 500GB web storage), Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics, 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Blueooth 3.0, a 0.3 megapixel webcam, an SD/MMC card reader, and a 5200 mAh battery for up to 7 hours of operation per charge. This machine costs €449 and is backed by a two-year warranty.
How does it do in the power consumption/battery life department?
"•Six-cell battery that can last up to 6 hours but should wind down to 3-4."
"The 1015T is based on AMD’s base level Nile platform. It can easily outperform single-core Atoms with thier puny integrated GMA graphics chip." LOL!
This is what I would get if I was to get a netbook. I don't buy intc crap inside.
