ASUS Eee 1215N

The 12.1-inch screen is glossy and has the same issues with glare as most netbooks and notebooks do, but it looks great with video streaming.

The right side of the ASUS Eee 1215N has a pair of USB ports, Kensington lock port, Ethernet jack and the mic/headphone ports. The little machine is impressively thin.

The left side of the 1215N has VGA out, HDMI out, USB port, a cooling grate and the memory card reader. The little port to the left of the VGA output is the tiny AC adapter for the machine.

The bottom of the netbook has nothing to see but the battery releases, cooling grates and the covers for the storage and RAM.

The keyboard is nicely sized, well spaced and has good typing feel. The right Shift key is smaller than the left, which is a pet peeve of mine.

My review unit was brushed silver on top. The 1215N is also available in glossy black.
