ASUS haven’t been slow to update their netbook range with Intel’s latest Atom N450 processor, and a further 10.1-inch Eee PC has shown up in Europe. The ASUS Eee PC 1001PX has similar styling to other ASUS netbooks of late, but gets Intel’s N450 1.66GHz CPU, 1GB of memory and a carbon-fiber finish.
Both Windows 7 (1001PX-WHI006S) and Windows XP (1001PX-BLK003X) models will be available. The former has a 250GB hard-drive and a 6-cell battery which ASUS reckon is good for up to 9hrs runtime, while the later gets a smaller 160GB hard-drive and a 3-cell battery for up to 5hrs use.
Both have three USB 2.0 ports, VGA and 10/100 ethernet, along with WiFi b/g, a memory card reader and 0.3-megapixel webcam. Dimensions are 262 x 178 x 25.9-36.5 mm and the whole thing weighs around 1kg. The Windows XP model is expected to run to around €241 ($326) while the Eee PC 1001PX running Windows 7 Home Edition shouldn’t be more than €300 ($406) when they arrive in Italy imminently.
