According to the latest rumors from retailers, the DVD-equipped ASUS Eee PC E1004DN will land in stores come mid-April with a sticker price of NT$18,000 - 20,000 ($531 - 590).  The Eee PC E1004DN - first spotted at CES earlier this year - will have an Intel Atom N280 processor, the HD-capable GN40 graphics chipset and a 120GB hard-drive.  Those same sources have also tipped the launch of the ASUS Eee PC 1008HA.

Despite being a 10.2-inch netbook, the E1004DN still finds space for a DVD burner, ExpressCard slot and three USB 2.0 ports, together with WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth and an 8-in-1 multiformat card reader.  The netbook was originally slated to remain in Europe and China only, but was spotted clearing the FCC at the beginning of March.

As for the Eee PC 1008HA, that's predicted to arrive in May.  No pricing detail has been given, but earlier rumors suggested that the "Shell" netbook would hit the UK in April priced at £359 ($517).
