Asus Eee 1005PR netbook debuts

If you are like me, you are probably thinking we didn’t exactly need another Asus Eee netbook model. Asus seems determined to have a plethora of netbooks for consumers to choose from. The latest Eee netbook has been revealed and it is called the 1005PR.

The 1005PR has a 10.1-inch 720p resolution screen and sports a Broadcom BCM 70015 HD decoder. The CPU in the machine is the Atom N450 and the little netbook has 1GB of RAM with 2GB as an option. Storage is to a 250GB HDD and Asus offers 500GB of online storage with the machine.

WiFi 802.11b/g/n connectivity and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR is built-in. A scant 0.6MP webcam is integrated and the machine has a 6-cell battery promising up to 11 hours of run time per charge. Rounding out the features are three USB 2.0 ports, VGA out, RJ45 port, memory card reader, and headphone/mic jacks. Asus will offer the 1005PR in black, white, pink, and blue for about $400.
