Remember that bit of news a few months back saying how NVIDIA Ion 2 netbooks would be shipping this summer? Well, if you didn't notice, the Acer Aspire One 532G never came and the ASUS Eee PC 1201PN did ship but lacked NVIDIA's Optimus technology to switch between the discrete chip and onboard graphics. Now, ASUS is set to launch an honest to goodness Ion 2 netbook in the form of the Eee PC 1215N. That netbook will be a 12 inch model that packs a dual-core Intel Atom D525 running at 1.8GHz and NVIDIA's Optimus which makes this netbook the Ion 2 machine to get.

ASUS says the Eee PC 1215N will ship in the U.S. around August 23rd for under $500.
