AMD Congo netbooks from MSI and ASUS


AMD’s next generation platform for thin notebooks, Congo, was presented back in October along with the notebook concept VISION. The new platform is starting to appear and we have found it inside notebooks from ASUS and MSI. The major problem is what category to put them in. ASUS Eee PC 1201T looks like a netbook, while MSI Wind12 U230 looks like a notebook.

They have a lot in common, but even if the Congo platform is the base they still target different buyers. Unconfirmed sources says that ASUS Eee PC 1201T will use the single-core Athlon Neo MV40 processor together with the RS780MN chipset. MSI on the other hand will use the dual-core Athlon Neo X2 L335 processor.

Both computers sport the integrated Radeon HD 3200 GPU for feeding the 12.1″ display with pixels at 1366x768px resolution. Or why not 1080p HD material that Intel’s competing platform can’t even do.

MSI Wind12 U230 has been officially launched and sports HDMI output and a matte LCD monitor, which is great according to us. It weighs only 1.3kg and a profile between 24-31mm.

ASUS Eee PC 1201T sports similar specifications other than the first mentioned, but it’s a bit thicker with a profile between 27.3-33.3mm. ASUS hasn’t made an official announcement yet, but we will cover the development.
