Switching to a dual-core CPU and adding better graphics capabilities might be expected to radically shorten the battery life of an Eee PC. Fortunately, the 1215N proved to be a solid performer in our video playback battery drain test, running for 3 hours and 56 minutes–as good or better than any premium Netbook/ultraportable we’ve seen (although standard Netbooks can easily run one hour extra or more).

At least part of that credit must go the Nvidia’s Optimus technology, which turns the Ion GPU off and on automatically as needed. When not playing HD video or running an intensive application such as a video game, the system uses the default integrated Intel graphics instead, thereby nearly matching the battery life of a laptop without a separate GPU. The best part is that this all happens behind the scenes, with no need for the user to set anything up or manually switch between graphics profiles. We’re seeing Optimus on more and more laptops recently, and it’s close to becoming a must-have feature for any system with Nvidia graphics.

Asus includes an industry-standard, one-year, parts-and-labor warranty with the system, and also offers a collection of online support tools, including driver downloads, online FAQs, and also a 24-7 toll-free phone line.
