ASUS’s new Eee PC 1215 offers a lot for a netbook. It features a 12-inch LED screen with 1366×768 resolution, Intel Atom D510 dual-core CPU, and the brand new NVIDIA Ion GPU with Optimus technology. Optimus, if you’re unaware, allows the automatic switching of the netbook’s two GPUs (an Intel GMA 3150 & NVIDIA G218) based on the application’s graphical intensity.

Other specs include 4GB RAM, Bluetooth, and HDMI output. Also impressive are the two USB 3.0 ports featured on the device. There is also a third USB 2.0 port.

The Asus Eee PC 1215 will be available in July for around $550.
