Asus has launched a new mini laptop called 1015BX in the market. From outside, it looks similar to the Asus 1011px or any other 10.1 inch Asus mini laptop except for one difference – it is powered by AMD C30 1GHz single core processor and features the powerful ATi Radeon HD 6250 GPU.
Asus will also offer a AMD C50 version of it. This processor has two cores which will speed up multitasking and apps that make use of both cores. However, the major improvement that I see is in the graphics department. Generally, most of the mini laptops comes with GMA 3150 / 950 graphics which, to be honest is only good enough for SD (standard definition) YouTube videos. But with ATi 6250 GPU, you will be able to view full HD content on it.
Other perks include inclusion of USB 3.0 (1x) and HDMI port to output the laptop’s screen to a bigger display.
